May 26th Andy and myself attended the annual show held in the town hall in Torquay, weather was very nice.

Out come from the show was Andy walking away with a 2nd in the foot figure class and three raffle ticket wins although he waved one win and myself walking away with a 1st in the maritime class.

The tables have been booked for next year with a possible wreck fishing trip on the Sunday.

Photos to follow.

Nice one Lucky, well done both of you

I must admit to being put off this show by the lack of parking and the need for an over nighter for a very small show! But I couldn't make it anyway as it is also now the time of year that I have may daughters visiting with their families! over a 2-3 week period.

Thanks Mal.
Although the show is small it is a very friendly and fun show.
Also Lucky, Myself and my Better Half also make a long weekend out of it now, which has seen us go on several cruises, a steam train, visit a zoo, walk for miles and miles up and down hills, and this time me getting near enough stuck in a quarry .
