Great day out, many thanks to everyone for putting it on and a special mention for Chris Fry for fixing my tank when I broke it and (hopefully) diagnosing the root cause of my power comsumption issues. Camera issues (I forgot to charge it!) meant I didn't get much in the way of photos but a couple came out just right...

The new electronics were good to see laid out and to hear it in operation.
The talks were a great addition to the day.
A good day out, many thanks to all who laid it on for us! Steve

Hi Everyone,

After what Chris and Stephen said, there is not much for me to add except for:
Lord, give me strength to change the things I am able to change.... and patience to endure the things I can not change :-)

Hi All at Armortek
Just wanted to thank you for the great day out and nice to see some of the original guys
turn up.
So many people it was hard to talk to all that were there.
Looking forward to the next one.

regards

Derek
