1986 - Prowlers BC
Phillip Cross still has the photos kept in his deep freeze. Good thing because otherwise he'd swear an oath he'd never been there.

1987 - February 20th
Once again we were on the banks of the M25, in the same field the Prowlers used for their October Party rally. I missed Friday night, due to work, so it took a while to find a group of tents whose occupants I knew and set up. This meant that, by the time I was ready to enjoy myself, the games were starting. With the name of the rally being what it is, you may expect some 'Scottish' based antics and you wouldn't be disappointed. A bagpiper played some stirring music for us, before the bag-piping game occurred. (i.e. pillion passenger putting bags on pipes as your bike rushed past them), small caber tossing, and suchlike.
After these there was a bit of a lull before the bar opened again, so we busied ourselves setting fire to things to keep warm.
When the party did begin again, there was the traditional messing about in the straw to get things going. After a while the eating/drinking competitions were well fought and shortly thereafter the band started up. I was pleased to see 'Ivors Jivers' again.
During their rest break, several young ladies felt the need to remove some, if not all, their clothes, (without the threat of water, due to the time of year). Some of them didn't feel the need to replace all their layers for the rest of the night, with the band playing the rest of their set to much appreciation.
Sunday morning arrived, unsurprisingly, a bit cold and misty, but I didn't have far to go home, (even less of a distance than normal club meetings), so this didn't worry me in the slightest.
