Nice work K!

I made the inside track 10 too, but reckon the long route is a bit longer.

Do not forget the big prize is for having some of the 16 left when you get back.

You Jersey lot are so sneaky! You come to a crime-free island with your big-island ways.

Cheating will only get you marooned on Burhou with the wildlife trust girls.

Well, in that case.....

Hmmm on second thoughts, isn't that why I left the island in the first place? Being marooned on the main rock with the local wildlife was bad enough!

And anyway, what are you doing on Ribnet. Shouldn't you be powerwashing a CI 32?

I am, well that is to say that Mel is. A birthday treat for her.

I have a tipsy four-stroke that needs rebuilding....

Great idea - let us know more!

Interesting idea to do a trophy insipred by artefacts from the Alderney Elizabethan Wreck. Let us know if there is anything you want - have you seen the replica pan weights? - you might want to offer these as prizes in some way: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=190358714410

Good luck with the event though!

Hello Mr Sauce

Yes indeed we have seen the pan weights, might well be worth inclusion.

Sounds good

Do we want to combine the Second Annual Alderney Floptilla with the Cannonball Challenge? I was thinking of the second May bank holiday for the latter.

Either May B-H, that would make it a nice & easy long weekend.
