The 2012 LINCS Wingding was held at Lucarly's in Cleethorpes in June 2012.
The site included a sports field for camping and Lucarly's pub and restaurant for eating and drinking.
Despite awful rainy weather we had a good turnout with Goldwings arriving from as far afield as Devon.
The entertainment and atmosphere was great and we actually managed a rideout into Lincoln city without it actually raining.
Here we are parked up at the side of the Brayford Marina ready to enjoy a day of shopping and visiting around the ancient city.

Returning to our camp site we were met by the Missouri Raiders a Wild West re-enactment group based in Grimsby.  They instructed us in the use of firearms of the period and then set us to shooting each other in quick draw shoot-outs (using blank ammunition).  It seemed that Larry (our Chairman) was a dab hand at the colt 45 - probably due to his enormous hands - however, he wiped out his competition without a problem.  After the shoot-outs, we competed in a quick draw competition again the clock.  The idea was to draw and fire as quickly as possible after a light signal.  The winner managed a staggering  lightening fast draw of less than 0.7 seconds.  Not bad when you have to heave a lump of heavy iron from its holster, cock the hammer mechanism all the way back and then pull the trigger.
Our session with the Missouri Raiders was topped off by a most excellent BBQ provided and served by Lucarly's staff for a very reasonable price.
 
Overall the Wingding was considered a great success and we even made a profit of 90.00 after  paying 50% back to GWOC.  In addition, during the evening's entertainment the group made a presentation of a cheque to the Lincolnshire Air Ambulance from charity funds we had collected throughout the year.
