Militants at Kemble

Recommended Posts

The trip down to Kemble was a pre Beltring warm up run as Grumpy had never took the Militant much more than 5 miles from the yard. In a mad rush it was stripped and painted in the 3 days before we left on Friday then fixed the clutch on Friday afternoon 2 hours before we left in a down pour!

Traveled down with Simon Stolly in the TM with his Mog on the back.

Grumpys and Militant Grahams together.


On Saturday we a had a go at using Grahams 10 ton Recovery Dolly to recover the Militant. Its the first time Graham had used it to pick up something so it was a case of trial and error. :-D

All rigged and ready to run to the arena.

Had a cracking weekend, our first time at Kemble. Seeing the Cheiftains running around the arena made me want one even more. :-) Good to meet TooTallMike and Grasshopper the Ward is lovely. See you at Beltring.

Didnt get any of the Mog fishing was to busy making sure he didnt lose his catch. Gumpy had a couple of me loading it in the yard and some one must have some from the show. :dunno:

Tempting as it may be i would be a pain letting the dogs out!

Roll on Beltring! :-D
