Thanks for a nice meeting. Great to finaly meet people face to face
Looking good. Who is the guy with the flame thrower ?
What are the two giants front left on the bench?
They are long burn lanterns and the link below shows relevant paperwork.
Nice display and I like the awesome flame thrower light up too.
Nice, but where did you announce where and when?
There have been nothing on CPL or CCS of what I have seen.
It is usually announced in Events & Meets but not this year.
Where where you this year.
I hope not near me.
Sorry about that Michael, I'll take responsibility for that mistake. It just slipped my mind. It was held at a camp ground at Åmål, so only 300km from you.
It was a nice weekend and the weather cooperated reasonably well until about 11 PM Saturday night. We must have been about 16 or 17 collectors and then there were a few wives thrown in as well, so we were probably over 20 all up.
On the Saturday we had a competition as usual with 200cp lamps and 300cp lamps to see which one will burn the longest. They must be the common standard size like a Primus 1020, Radius 119, Optimus 300 etc. The idea is that the lamps are not allowed to be touched after they are lit. Here are a couple of pictures of the 300cp and 200cp competitors.
We then had a bit of a discussion about the variations of the Optimus 930.
Of course there were lots of lamps lit when it got dark. Here is a shot showing the final two lamps in both the 300cp and 200cp competitions, as well as a lot of others. This is about nine hours after they were lit.
There was a very nice Swedish Aladdin.
And the general scene.
