This was the weekend of the annual SVBM two day open day event held at Lathalmond. Just one of my vehicles attended this year, GCS 50V however B509 YAT was also on display. The weather was great, helped out in the bar again this year which was again fun. Camped over on the Saturday night with a few drinks catching up with friends. A great weekend was had by all and again no vehicles stuck in mud!
