Hi Darren,
Have you got a venue address for the show, we're thinking about attending the show as an escape from the chaos that will be occuring from the fast approaching wedding of mine, cheers

Jason

I think the show is due to be held at the Royal Engineers Museum - Gillingham. It was last year. It's a very good day out, as the museum is fantastic (my Dad was an engineer, so i'm biased:-)).

If i'm wrong and the venue has changed, i'm sure that Darren will jump in.

Thanks for the info Andy, had a quick look on the Royal Engineers Museum website, and found it there.. http://www.remuseum.org.uk/rem_events.htm#sep .
Been meaning to visit the museum for ages, so maybe I'll be able to kill 2 birds with one stone.....

Hi Jason.
I will be there with Medway, but I'm also hoping if I can put some models on the Kitmakers stand, if it's possible to.
Hope to see you there Jason.
Regards Daz.

Of course we will want some of your models for the stand Daz it belongs to you as well now

I'm, possibly, even more biased, I'm an ex sapper myself, hence the monica "Holdfast" which was old time radio speak for Engineer. 3 of my brothers also served in the Corps

My only problem with attending this show is the fact that it's 2 days. This will mean that I will have to find somewhere, very, reasonable to stay. I'm going to see if I can stay in the Sgt's mess, but I'm not sure if that'll be possible. It will be cool if I can

Ok thanx Mal.
As where to find somewhere to stay I'll have a word with a few people, and see if they can suggest anywhere.

Hi Mal.
I've emailed our club chairman, who will either email you directly or pass it on to someone who is organising the clubs wishing to attend the show.
HTH.

I had an email reference the hotel accomodation, 60 for a twin room. If Nige can still go that makes it 30 each, which is not bad. However I am totally broke because I have the MOT for the car coming up and I have to get a new rear light cluster 121 + vat and the car requires a service. So, at the moment, things aint looking too god. However I haven't given up as you never know what's on the horizon

Hi Mal.
I will try and get my schedule confirmed by the Aeroventure show but so far its still looking good.
The Travellodge about 5 miles away is showing a family room available for 50, and there are quite a few b&b's listed.
Re the car. Do you think the stand will fit in mine if you have issues with yours?
