Saturday 20th January was the date of the annual Shackerstone Diesels post X-mas bash . The evening consisted of a round of skittles, with the winners being the 'class eleven heaven' team, a copious amount of Church End Brewery ale consumed, and a range of awards given to some members including;
The most clag award (a jar full of smoke)-
31130 and Suburban Preservation due to their smokey antics at the last gala.
