Great shots Tim, you've saved me the trouble of posting mine! :lol:

Edit... It seems there were two threads about his Rally, so using the powers of moderation I have merged them into one!

We all need to give this little guy a big pat on the back. For those who don't know him, this is Matt (username "Matt560Breese" on this forum) and he is the one who decided to take on the task of running his own Bus Rally after the SVR decided to pull the plug on their annual event.

Not everything went to plan, but lessons have been learned and it will be back next year... Bigger and Better!

Thanks Matt.
