RT AREA 35 - Travel part of their miles on rollercoasters at Drayton Manor Theme Park
Greg Meadwell from Area 35 said, "The day started sedately at a barmy 8.00am (not a time normally known to tablers on a Saturday) with bacon / sausage baps, vats of coffee and England v Scotland on the big screen at Drayton Manor – yes it was even for a tabler it was too early for a beer!
So after a stomach churning 80mins we headed off into the park for what would end up being a full day of rollercoaster mayhem! 12 of us split up into groups of four to tackle Shockwave, squeeze ourselves into the cars of the Buffalo and to drench ourselves on Stormforce. Sadly a couple of guys were unable to make it, but it didn’t stop us taking a photo of empty seats where they would have sat – or did they!! Suffice to say we had a terrific time, and believe me when you are tightly squeezed two abreast in a ride designed for smaller people (the Buffalo), the screams of terror are replaced by those of pain as knees and oversized bellies are further squashed against restraint bars and with the best girlie scream of absolute fear emanating from Juan on the straightest and slowest part of the ride you can only imagine the shear fear and terror that manifest on the bends!
In all we travelled at least 10 miles, in two stints separated by a liquid lunch, which perhaps was not the wisest of decisions. Our sincere thanks and gratitude for allowing us access to Drayton Manor and to enter rides without queuing must go to William Bryan, who also measured rides and calculated distances and of course to RTCW who provided the reason and gave us an excuse to do what we tablers do best, fun, fellowship and raise money! We certainly proved that We did, We do. You can!"
