I was one of them "Swampy" types ( do you remember him?) , swinging from trees or bringing the streets of London to a standstill and generally causing havoc which went down like a lead balloon in the UK and was frowned upon by some. ( perhaps quite rightly)
At least here, if I choose to do similar), I'll be seen as pretty much "normal"!
Sorry to hear you got a soaking, if I'd have know it was going to do that I'd have offered you a lift back to your car. We got a bit damp walking back to the car park but it had eased off by the time we go there. Driving back home it absolutely hammered it down (wipers on full chat couldn't keep up with it) as I was going through Willaston, so if it's any consolation I think Nantwich missed the worst of it.
Anyway, glad everyone enjoyed the meet-up, here's to the next one.
