Crich Fete 16thJuly 2011

Heading off to find Crich, in individual cars as the rain fell heavily, was not what was expected for our first visit to this event. Following the route as provided didn't come easy either, with yours truly being made the scapegoat heading up the ever decreasing lane in the hope of finding our destination. Although this did provide a load of laughs for the occupants of my car whilst returning.

Eventually all our members arrived at the same point and we parked alongside each other in the Glebe Centre Car Park opposite the little tunnel leading down to the field and fortunately the weather had now changed to just dull but dry - ish.

With no parade today, the members were able to take their time in changing ready to take the field for the display programme, that was until a poorly horse was substituted and our display was brought forward.

Although once again work and holidays was playing havoc with our active membership.

However, the rest percevered in putting on a great show for the large crowd as the sun now started to shine on the righteous turning the venue into a warm summers event.

After a brief interval, the Musketeers took time to take in some refreshments before returning to the arena to present a static musical programme.

Unfortunately this time without the services of the Bandmaster Kevin and Becky who had dashed of to another event down in deepest darkest Kent 200 miles away after the earlier display.
Non the less the organisers commented on a very well presented programme of entertainment afterwards, with the promise of further invites in the future.

Next up for the 'Musketeers' is an even closer venue to home at Tupton on the 23rd July.
