North Petherton 2009

E-mail Print PDF

After a series of late nights getting the cart ready for Bridgwater there weren't many around to prepare for North Petherton. Matt was last seen crashed out on the lounge floor, Tim woke at 11:30 then fell asleep again till 2pm, Gary and Darren were off fixing a tractor leaving Steve and a few others to fix the things that broke last night. A mix-up early in the transfer from Bridgwater to North Petherton resulted in one of the marshals getting upset, sorry about that!

North Petherton procession lived up to it's reputation with an enthusiastic crowd and RAIN, although we managed to finish before it really hammered down and before someone hit a cable :-) Thanks to all those at the One2One youth club for the tea on the way round. We came first in class, a great result.

We arrived at Burnham-On-Sea in the rain after another event free journey.

Bridgwater 2009

E-mail Print PDF

The cart left the shed promptly at 9am on the 6th November after several members spent the whole night doing last minute fixes. We had the usual problem of the cart grounding out as we left the shed and the cart got stuck in Cheer Lane for the second year in a row, this time it was the trees not the pavement that caught us out.

We made it into Bridgwater to line up within our specified time limit, which is a first for many years! Final preparations in Parkway went well with no major dramas. The procession went well and the crowd joined in with the dancing which is always good to see. We came 6th in class which was an encouraging result.

Steve's first gearbox

E-mail Print PDF

With only 33 days to go before Bridgwater carnival our cart build is not as advanced as we'd like, although there have been some significant engineering successes. Check out this video of Steve's first gear-box, only 10 more to go Steve! Sorry about the excited camera man but this was a significant step forward.

Movements Petition

E-mail Print PDF

Dorset Police have made the decision to ban night time movement of carts. Now Somerset Police are discussing the matter! We urge you all to follow the link below and sign the petition so that ministers have a look into it. Hopefully then, Dorset Police will retract their decision to ban such movements!
