    Thanks :)

    I'll let Danny explain ;) :p

    Cam, the history i have on him and another i have here is that they spent the last 50 odd years plodding around in someones garden. So i know he is at least 50 but could be anything between 50 and 70 i guess.

    It's a meeting via the forum in the UK, shelledwarriors. :D
    The weekend I'm there the forum is having their annual meeting, the second one. There will be tons of compromising photos posted on the forum, I'm sure, after the meet. :D There are plenty from last year posted on the forum. :p
    I will have to get a couple of t-shirts and do that. :D
