I need to know how many of you can make it to the Medway show, held at the Royal Engineers Museum, Gillingham, Kent on the 1-2nd September. Yes it's a 2 day show. I am hoping to go with Nige and stay over so that we can do both days. The intention is for me to pick up Nige on the way (I think) but that will mean limiting the amount of the stand that I can carry. This is not a problem as it is designed to break down to a smaller unit if needed.
So Nige and myself are hoping to be there and Daz will be there. I can take a couple of boxes of models which will be about 17 (unless I get my finger out and re-organise them ) Nige, I'm sure will have some of his wonderful stuff and Daz will have some items.
If no one else can make it we will simply have a "compact and begue" (spelling?) stand. Again not a problem but I do need to know if anyone else can make it and, more importantly, (possibly) can you bring any models and can you stay for both days.
I have asked for space, but I have had no confirmation as yet.

I'll be there anyway as I'm having two tables to myself at the show as I want to do a specific theme this year. I will also bring some of my crap for the Bulldogs stand too!
Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Yep Daz, got the email, it just says " got the application form, looking forward to seeing you" I take that to mean that we are in. The stand will be on it's way to Medway.

We now just have to arrange to meet up for a drink on Saturday night

Yep - married second time around - so i know about divorce as well.

Me & SWMBO have a deal. I don't go to jewellery shows, she dosen't come to model shows. It works well.

See you at Doncaster.

Are you mad !!!!

This talk about half pints has me a little worried. Now don't get me wrong as I understand that it aint good to drink and drive (in fact if I am driving I don't drink), so I gather that that is the reason. However there is NO excuse for only having a half if your not driving

(Says he who only drinks once or twice a year, but likes to make up for it when he does )
