I have had an email today saythat that there has been a cancelation and we have first refusal. If I say yes, how many can bring models to display?
I realise that those that are going have probably become resighned to be able to go to the show without have to display, so it isn't a problem if you don't want to, I just need to know I had become quite excited at the prospect of just attending a show, but I'm more than happy to get the stand down there.
I'll reply that I'm just mustering the members but I need to give a definate yes or no very soon.

Although everything is still packed from Doncaster, Sam and I will not be able to attend unfortunately. We only have 9 more weekends to get a diorama comp finished for the Cadets (which we only started last weekend). That and we have also run out of modelling tokens until the end of the month (I suggested to Sam not to get that resin Typhoon ) Hope you all enjoy yourselves.

Something has come up and I might not now be able to make the show It isn't definate but I can't let the oppertunity by, as it's very unusual to get overtime where I work, in fact it's unheard of. Although it is only a slim possibility I have to aim off just in case. So I will decline the offer of space, sorry, but I will ask that we are thought of for next year.
Thanks Phil, Keith and Derek, for taking up the batton at such short notice. I may still see you there.
Keith are you there with your other branch?

no worries mal, these things happen. i'm lucky these shows happen mainly on sundays, because in the last two months there're the only full days i've been getting off.
on another note i can spend my grand national winnings there!
