The last night of Stafford had a fair old queue when we turned up. Dispersed in every direction in about 1.4 nonoseconds after Dave emerged to advise the heaving throng that "everyone will be searched, so make sure you don't bring in anything you shouldn't have"! whistling.gif

Major Lance at Hinckley. now that was a crush, ridiculous! even Mike Walker would'nt have made an impression

I remember going to wigan and being "floated" in. It was so packed when paying in ,i was moved along with a group of people ,bag on my head,my feet weren't even on the ground!then when you went through the doors at the top of the stairs,the heat hit you....the smell of sweat, "Brut "and "Hai karate" hit the nasal receptors like a tidal wave.....but well worth it

always bedford nite spot being a bit of a crush to get in - mainly because it didn't start till 2.00 so by the time they got the locals out we were freezing and the locals would be scrapping amongst themselves
