The Official Count!

Well the final count is in and we had 26 ribs launched from Chris's plus 2 from Holyhead, 1 from Plas Coch plus HP (1/2 way round). According to Chris that is the best turnout so far previous best that launched from Chris's was 23

A fantastic turnout then. As you see at the start of the thread I said I would give 5.00 for Macmillan for every rib that took part . I will therefore make a donation of 150

Thanks for all your support in making it happen! A great day with a great bunch of fellow Ribbers!

Nick

PS If anybody has a better count then let me know!

Still trying to right my thank yous for this year. I did spot two good candidates in a fine Redbay though! One prettier than the other.
