Event Report

It was Glastonbury but without the floods and the threat of dysentery as the Plough camping weekend now in its 3rd year got off to a suitably raucous start on the Friday night. A sea of tents ,rock n’ roll courtesy of  harmonica blues band ‘Renegade’ and ‘Skynny Lennard’ belting out rally favourites like ‘Freebird’  and of course people. Lots of happy people – happy because unlike the Glastonbury campers, their tents and belongings weren’t half way down the River Avon on their way to Christchurch !.

Doubling as a 50th birthday party for ‘2 Feathers’ Mick who’s tent was suitably decorated in his absence the sultry night air enabled hogsters to party on into the early hours in the beer garden before succumbing to freshly barbied burgers to soak up the alcohol and retiring for a hot sticky night under canvas.

With Phil C. in the captains seat Saturday saw a return ride to Bradford on Avon for ‘Fun with Dick & Jane’ at the Lock Inn – home of the ‘Boatmans Breakfast’ and just about the biggest pub lunches on the face of the planet. Quite hard to get to but worth the effort to feed leftovers to the ducks in such tranquil surroundings as the long boats navigate the adjacent lock gates.

A brisk ride back to Sway with a halfway house stop for fresh strawberries and its back in the beer garden for more refreshment. The evening was much cooler than Friday but the patio heaters did the biz and the event was suitably rounded off by Jimmy the Duck performing the all time favourite party trick of pulling a condom over his head and inflating it. On this occasion though he was struggling a bit and was convinced there must be a prick in it (figuratively speaking of course) - so to satisfy the curiosity of bemused onlookers he removed it from his head , stretched it over his glass and up ended the contents. The mystery deepened however as not a single droplet appeared ?. Anyway like any self respecting biker not wishing to waste good booze he then downed the contents of the condom in one. Fantastic entertainment and just goes to show how much fun can you have for the price of a ‘Mates’ natural ? …. Tell that to the kids today and they won’t believe you.
