A great big thankyou to Gary and Tracy theyve done us all proud and thoroughly deserve there day with Speedy and much more in my eyes, Well done to you both.
Dont know where to start on an individual scale but i'd like to thankyou all for making my week so special. Made some great new mates this year that i didnt really get time to mix with last year (morrisey Davey, Bobby,Pauln,Nelly to name but a few). And got even closer with all my mates from last year, its been a great week roll on many more.
Pauln you fished like a legend and this year just proves that last year wasnt just luck and that your a very strong and consisent angler, well done fella. Ps if tha fancies the hat trick next year get on a diet you lump my backs killing from the leg un wing hahahaha.

I'M SEXY AND I KNOW IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fantastic time at my first festival, loved every minute of it ...thanks to everyone for making me feel so welcome an just like one of the boys. Looking forward to next year now and will be practicing hard so next time I can minx a few more ... Especially after our day with Speedy, thanks very much
Was very very chuffed at getting a second in section and bein 8th on the lake on Thursday my biggest weight yet ...
An absolutely brilliant week of drinking fishing with the best bunch of mates a man ever had. [:T]
Well done Rambo for the excellent organisation and result sheets. [:T]
Well done Mrs Rambo for some good weights and several "Minxings" [:T]
To my lodge-mate Nelly 500: sorry about the snoring mate, I'll bring you some ear-plugs next year.[:I] What's all this about you and "Posh Spice"? Did I miss something? 
To Tony and Colin: I ejoyed your company as always lads, I just don't like the hours you keep.[:0]
PS. If that arm-wrestling video ever makes it onto U-tube, I'll take you both to court................ 
To Pauln: A well-deserved win mate: you did your research, fished well and got stuck in. Respect. [:T]
To Nathan (Next peg on Oasis): "No fish down here in my swim Len, you're baggin 'em all...............[^]
Who put 160lb in the net? Not me! Lesson learned, never listen to a proper match angler on the next peg, especially one who leaves his bum-prints all over your french windows................ [:T] 
To Nana and Lewy: thanks for all the good advice lads, it helped me no end. [:T]
To Texpert: Star of the show mate, you are a diamond. [:T]
Just a little aside: Tex broke his pole on Laurels, and Keith (Shallowman) lent him a spare. [:T] Anyway, its prize-giving on Friday evening and eventually Pauln comes up to collect his trophy as overall winner and once the clapping has died down Tex says:
"Paul, instead of getting chucked into into Bonsai, how would you like to jump into Laurels and find my lost sections?"
It was good to see Midge put in an appearance on Friday in spite of all his problems, and I'm sure we all did all we could to keep his spirits up.
Many thanks as always to Neil, Bev and Aaron for looking after us so well: I always get the impression that MD'ers are "The Chosen Few" at Lindholme, and long may it continue.
Loking forward to meeting you all again next year: same time, same place.
