Butlins 80's Weekend 09/05/2003
Off early and picked up John from Bagshott for the trip to Bognor. We arrived in good time and got some drinks in to meet the others
in Diane's chalet. Into the centre then and off to the Centre Stage which was certainly a large venue. The police force
was one of the main acts of the night, though we also caught part of an Elton John.
Turned out to be Hen Night Central
at Butlins and there was some liberal interpretation of the 80's theme, and some liberal school girls. Certainly got through
a few Drinks that night before turning in about 3.30am. Up early enough for Laser Quest, quite a battle but my team were
hopelessly outclassed. On then for a very strenous game of Unihoc and then I had a go on the bouncey strings. I was doing fine till I
did a double back flip then my stomach complained so much I had to stop.
Played a bit then on the arcades and had a dip in the pool, going down the toilet bowl being a highlight. We went outside the complex to a pub on the sea
front for some food before the night began. Straight to the centre stage for a very impressive Blondie. It went a bit down hill for a while
with Bucks Fizz, but then came back with Go West. I also nipped along to Jumpin Jak's to see the Blue's brothers who were
also very good. Again didn't get in till nearly 4am, though I had made an early trip home for a bit of a lie down.
Next day saw breakfast in the waterfront
pub, then pool, which I had a bit of a run at, and then Bowling, with John, Vanessa and Sharon, it all went horribly wrong
for me this time after my impressive 147 the day before.
