Confessions of a JAE virgin!

Post by TonyleFrog » 15/09/13 17:36

Well after 7 years of heroic resistance I finally succumbed to the lure of JAE.
(not to mention a considerable amount of peer pressure by Dan, Andy, and especially Dave (oddshoes) during that time.

And I have to say I was massively disappointed




























Not to have been before. :yahoo:

A few highlights

IKO

Favourite event - Dragon boats: really close contests and pipped at the post.

Getting absolutely soaking wet in my first event (go carts) as the rain hammered down and attempting to do up a certain lady's zip. My excuse it that the vast majority of my previous experience has been in the opposite direction...

Wobbling like an out-of-control marionette in the joust (at least it entertained the crowd). I take some comfort that the guy who knocked me out (almost literally) was the eventual winner.

Dan's demented laugh every time the relay race was mentioned prior to the start (yes I was in that too).

Other stuff

A certain lady (yes, her again) who shall remain nameless pestering me to show her my pics and pleading with me for most of the evening not to publish any photos of her in the lightweight TOW. Being the evil person I am (hehehe) I kept her in suspense knowing I didn't have one.

Tallboy's eyes slowly glazing over due to a surfeit of beer on Saturday evening while his head slowly swung left and right, interspersed with the occasional nod, while trying to follow what those sitting either side of him were saying. It was like watching one of those a slow-mo action replays of the crowd at Wimbledon.

Dawsey's epic exhaust drowning out the Honda boys and the flames nearly barbecueing PeteV6R5!

Great craic and superb company. Thanks to everyone, old hands and new, for a thoroughly enjoyable weekend - despite the dodgy weather!

Now - back to culling/sorting those pics... ;)

Superb atmosphere all weekend, and the rain did nothing to dampen the spirits. Fair play to you Tony for competing in those events and just doing so helped us win the IKO and provide us with many a side splitting moment :clapping:

It's not your average car show at JAE with the OC is it :D

Well done Tony for taking part and finally attending Jae to see what all the fuss was about,glad to see you enjoyed yourself because we certainly enjoyed seeing you wobble and spin.
Now lets have a little chat about those pics,especially the ones with myself within view,they are actually banned from the forum and I have pm'd a mod friend of mine to remove them once posted.














And he said,"no chance".

He might change his tune when he sees the ones where he appears... :laughing

Besides Jeff has already threatened to ban me if I post any of him. ;)

Which I guess means I will be on the IMOC stand next year... :rolleyes:

Pleasure to meet you Tony :th:

I don't say this often (especially considering my old age running jokes at JAE) but you do act quite a bit younger than you are. If I can do jousting and relay races at your age then I'd be proud to say the least.

We better see you at JAE again next year :clapping:
