Saturday 30th October '04
Friday evening we arrived at Shakespeare
After unloading the car and
setting up we started with a wee tipple, and then continued to decorate the
van with a few Halloween banners, ghosts and pumpkins. It was good to see a
few other teams had also got in the "spirit" of the event!! (the old ones
are the best...)
Who's the little fella dancing
in Helen's drink?
The Halloween meet was going to
be a bit different for Team Twisted as Dean was going to be driving for this
event. (mainly because Helen wanted to play at dressing up!!) Dean hadn't
driven since February so was looking forward to it, although with a few
butterflies as well. The rain that fell early Saturday morning had left the
track and pits very damp and although the crew tried valiantly the track
refused to dry properly throughout the morning.
Oooooooo! Well scary.... (the
pumpkin, not me, obviously)
Happy Face or just trapped
About time Helen did some more
work on the car...
The whole team in "spook"
afternoon saw the track come around enough for treaded tyres to run, but
Team Twisted had to settle for an afternoon of tinkering and chatting.
all day, Saturday evening saw Helen and Christine transformed into their
Halloween outfits; a red Devil and a purple witch. The team went out and
handed out treats in the shape of ghost cakes, spider biscuits and orange
cakes. We watched the bonfire and Helen was a brave girl and stayed outside
for the fireworks. (only because the fire crew were stood next to her!)
After a few drinks and a great evening, we headed for bed to rest up for the
next days track time.
Christine and Helen fit in
fine with the evenings entertainment.
