Think it's all been said above already - what a fantastic end to the show season - a totally excellent time was had through the whole wknd and had lots of really good feedback too :D

Massive well done to Carl and Gigha and everyone who helped out not only over the wknd but the run up to it also.

Top wknd - roll on Fling 2012 8)

Hi Guys and Gals,

Thanks so much to all who attended and risked a really good weather beating again. Amazingly we spoke with several people for whom The Final Fling is the only show they attend during the year. :shock: Hard-core, crazy or what???

We felt it best to carry out just one or two ritual sacrifices to the Weather Gods in the days leading up to the show in order to keep the wet stuff away, so to all of you hoping for a repeat of last year's lightning, thunder, horizontal hailstones and mud, we send our heartfelt and sincerest apologies...

Our thanks go out to all who helped out over the weekend in any way whatsoever - the show would simply not have happened without every single one of you. (Big hugs). Special mention must be made of the RNLI volunteers who handled the late shifts on the gate (freeing up valuable drinking time in the marquee...), plus Andy for the sound and Mickey for the fantastic marquee set-up; both of these guys have a passion for their craft far and beyond just 'doing the job'. Finally, we would like to thank the producer, the director, everyone who knows us, the dog... Sorry; scratch that; wrong speech!

Apologies to anyone that received an incomplete goody bag; the timescale we had to work with did not allow us to complete all the printing we had planned. We shall get another batch of Final Fling stickers printed so please contact us directly with your full details and one will be posted out to you.

Cheers all, The Klinkies.
Have nothing on your VW that you do not know will make it go faster, or believe to be beautiful.

great fling as always! great to catch up with everyone, apologys for the lack of appearance towards the end of saturday night, the urban terrorists
and crew peaked a few hours too early!!!! :oops: just about made it back for gay bar though so all was not lost :lol: Oh and Carol loving the
punk image, needs to be installed permanently 8)

very depressing journey back to Aldershot, only highlight was being caught by one of them mobile tax check cameras, the look of disapointment on
the policemans face after following me for a couple of miles to the next layby only to approach the van and see the trade plates was priceless :lol:

Anyhow thanks to all that organised and contributed to a cracking weekend roll on next year and will post up when down west for some winter surfing trips!

Thank you all so much once again. Awesome weekend, well worth the long drive down each year!

Love this show, wouldn't miss it for the world!

Can you please book the rain for next year though? :P

We have been blown away by all your lovely comments and we truly couldn't have done it without so much help. Thank you ALL so much. I wont mention people by name in case I
forget anyone, but you know who you are.
I have posted loads of photos on Facebook, so get on there and 'tag' yourselves, your vans, cars, and friends.
I will post a few pics here for those who don't do Facebook. See you soon, Gigha
