Ah I remember that. I remember seeing her at the fest in her bikini.

TBF the bikini girl was fine compared to some of the mankini men in the last couple of years.

Worst was the green mankini guy in '17 with a sweaty hanging either side of the garment. My eyeballs/memory are still scarred

Glad I missed this, sounds as funny as herpes. We're struggling if that was a board highlight.

I remember the girl who got "BOA 06" (or "boaob" as it looked) tattooed all the way down her arm after the aforementioned festival.

Sniper Dogs was quite funny actually. Especially as it was a druggy that was paranoid about his "stash" getting found.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned "Boobgate". When half the female forum members got into a tiz due to a young girl flashing a bit of cleavage. Some defensive and others being extremely judgemental. I seem to remember a few ragequits in the aftermath. :lol:

"Boobgate" was stupid for many reasons, but the one that annoyed me the most about it was the fact if Hannah or someone in that group had done it. Everyone would have been talking her up for the next year rather than making a thing out of it.

Out of the people mentioned so far, I still bump into Holly occasionally at gigs.

I actually do remember something about this, some guy coming on here asking how easy it was to smuggle weed in. Can't imagine a typo being that hilarious though.

I don't think Andy Hall's been discussed enough, the board's so much duller without him having a hissy fit every time someone didn't agree with every word he said, or him constantly getting irate that Kittie weren't booked for the festival. He was definitely on the spectrum.

That wasn't the funny bit. It was all photos of dogs with rifles that was funny.

It was a good, lively forum for over ten years. Might still have been if it hadn't been for that last 'update'. Or was it starting to fade anyway?
