I have received a letter asking us to confirm that we would like space at the East Midlands Model Show at Hinckley. The show is on the 19th April,
so who will be able to attend?

I won't know until much nearer the time unless we suddenly sell the house.

Put Sam and I down as a possible

EDIT: Sam and I have discussed it and we won't be coming As we have Cosford and a horse show in April and we don't think the modelling tokens will stretch to three shows in a month

OK shift rosta checked, so Andy L you have a passenger.

At this rate the 'Souf'urn possie' could be attending more Northern shows then southern

The tables come 2 deep, I shall ask for 2? I reckon that if all those that have said they should make do, then 2 tables (2 table frontage, 2 tables deep) is what we want.

it looks like i won't make it to hinckley after all.
basically, the day before i'll be going to a school reunion/pub crawl part 2 (slightly long story!) and theres a massive chance i'll be slightly too delicate to get over

Sadly I won't be able to make it either (yet again), I tried to convince the better half we needed a weekend away, but she wouldn't be convinced plus I'm a bit short on the cash side, (plus I'm being told I need to get my finger out and finish the decking )

Andy, how was Normandy???, I keep on at the wife about going to Normandy, but I think she's gone deaf

Normandy was fantastic, went to Utah beach & museum and Ste Mere Eglise. It was a family holiday, so research took a back seat, but my Brother in Law has a house in Gorges, so i can go whenever i want to.

Back safe from a good day out, thanks to Andy and Courtney for allowing me to share the ride up.

On a sad note we saw the aftermarth of the crash on the M1.

On a good note we came across a MLRS with slat armour on the back of a low loader and had lots of fun trying to take photo's with a phone camera while going down the motorway
Got some looks off the driver have to watch out for the men in black coats and dark glasses

Hi ev,
was good to see you in Hinckley and the display was great. Sorry for not staying longer.

We got back with a ticket to round up a great sunny day though
