Just arrived home, and wanted to say a massive thank you to WhirlyGirl, WhirlyGuy, BLME and Catwoman for organising a fantastic evening. (And not forgetting Denis too.)

Thank you

It was great to put names to faces! The food excellent, and the puzzles somewhat perplexing. The entertainment was first class, too!

(Although quite surreal to end the evening with a bit of Kevin "bloody" Wilson!!)

Helen would like to thank BLME (and PilotWolf) for taking her up in G-RAVN this morning.

Looking forward to the next one!

Fantastic! So glad you could make it! We are currently sorting through the mass of photographs, and hope to put a few up on the site later on!

We all had a great time and it was wonderful to meet so many nice people off the forum. Very Happy

Maybe a dull day, but it certainly wasn't a dull evening, that's for sure!! Hehe. Great pic.

A 'few' times - hehe! I'm glad she enjoyed it. Cool

Helen was talking about is aswell, mostly saying how not nervous she felt - which is unlike any time I've taken her up. I wonder if it's simply the knowledge of having an experienced and smooth pilot at the controls has something to do with it. Laughing

Trouble is, I'm not going to hear the end of it now - it'll be criticism all the way! Rolling Eyes

What've I done?!?

Glad it went well and just sorry I could not make it. I had the boring work Xmas do last night - too hot, too crowded, too noisy and couldn't drink as I had to drive home. I thought with envy of you lot having fun at the Arrow!

Happy Xmas everybody

Hi all!!!

Yes to echo James' post, a fantastic time had by all I think!!

It was great to meet up with everyone who we had been chatting with on the internet. It almost felt like we had already known everyone there anyway. A very nice cost atmosphere I think.

I must try and get the 'Can Can' video off WhirlyGirl and compress it for the internet. At the moment it stands in at around 30MB so a little large for people to download and for us to upload. I will try tonight if I get the chance and also if I can prize the video from her hands as she is probably trying to hide the evidence now!!! lol Smile Smile

Hi Matt, maybe you can come along to the next HeliTorque get together. Not too sure when it will be yet but hopefully soon and maybe even more people next time. By the way I meant to say, welcome to the forum!

Anyway, it was great meeting everyone and I hope this can be the start of some great new friendships and many more fly-ins / drop-ins for the HeliTorque members.

P.S. Sorry if anyone has brain pains from the nail puzzles, just thought they might be a nice idea for something to do in any quiet contemplating moments. Smile

See you all soon,

W-Guy

I cannot believe that I did the Can Can all the way through!!! Confused

When we watched it through last night, I wondered how on earth I was ever going to look people in the eye again!! Shocked

If it is ever going to be posted on the site, you can all make you own judgement of it!! Wink Dread to think what comments TC will make of it though!

We had the most brilliant time, fantastic people as well!
Very Happy

Can't wait for WhirlyGirl and WhirlyGuy to post the piccys on the forum.

Hi there to all who came to the Bash - hope you all enjoyed it. We are not that mad really are we (ho hum!) Confused Confused It was great meeting you all, and thanks so much for coming along and making the first HeliTorque 'bash' a success.

Smile

PostPosted: Mon Dec 13, 2004 5:07 pm    Post subject: Party Pics Reply with quote

Hi Folks! I have spent all day going through the HUNDREDS of pictures we took at the HeliTorque Bash, and to be honest I have had a hard time choosing the best ones to put on the site - they are so nice (and some very silly)!

Anyhow I managed to narrow it down to about 40 photos - I tried uploading all 350 odd images onto Image Station but almost crashed my internet connection! However I will keep on trying and if I have any luck I will post the link. Meanwhile here are some photos which will bring back some nice (and for some of us embarrassing) memories of Saturday night!!









































































Hope you like the pics! If you find any of them offensive please let me know and I will take them down. Hope everyone enjoyed themselves at the party. WG Very Happy

Hi WW!

Lovely to meet you the other night! Real shame the party had to end!! Sorry we left without saying goodbye - the aircraft had to be back for 11am and we couldn't find you when we were about to set off. Sad

Anyway, looking forward to the next one - perhaps we'll have a fly-in early in the new year when we have recovered from the festive season!!

What a LOVELY looking bunch of people - You all looked very happy Wink

I've seen a preview of the Can Can girlies Shocked W-Guy & Cap't Blme - how do you keep up with them? tell me your secrets PLEASE!

I'd like to formally invite everyone to my house warming Fly-in in the Spring of 2005. Plenty of parking for Heli's and cars. A proper over-nighter. The 1st 7 couples get the beds - the rest - bring a sleeping bag Smile (unless we can get everyone er...no TC don't go there).

More details after the festive season

Happy Christmas you lot!

TC
