Congrats! Enjoyed my holidays in the SW desert, but after watching the TT review shows (with spectacular weather), made me want to go back to the island again.

Contemplated marshaling a time or two (SOF was doing it for the first time and I was thinking of joining him). But, I was spending so much money just to be there, and always so much to see, I never followed through.

I marshalled for over 10 years and had a great time and made some life long friendships that I cherish dearly , for me to go back now it will have to be something special but yes this years weather did make it a good one but as ever contraversial with the Steve Mercer accedent and Dan Kneens death , the Mercer incedent takes a bit of coming to turms with as an ex marshal and knowing how things should have been done , and then for his wife to be told not to let people know how he is getting on stinks , just puts a downer on it for me ,
