Because it's in my neighbourhood i'll probably go.
The key thing for me is that this must reach out positively to amateur tweekers
If it slides towards any sort of trade show i'll hate it
Is a date announced?
And i've looked, and can get a direct bus there on a sunday, which wasn't an option with scalford

If I decide to go and timings work out I'll be able to pick you up and drop you back.

Only a maybe at the moment. The caravan opens then.

The date is in the small print - 17/18 March.

I suspect I’ll be there
Politics aside I enjoy it.

Change isn’t always popular but sometimes it is for the best. If it stays as an amateur effort then why not!

I went to the Saturday of the Harrogate show and enjoyed it very much indeed. It was a nice mix of trade and wammers' systems.
I think next March's show will be good, but a Sunday is less convenient for those like me without vehicles. I would probably have to go up Saturday and stay over (Best Western nearby) maybe 2 nights.

The new venue seems to have much going for it in practical terms so I look forward to how it works out. I will miss Scalford for its quirkiness - it seemed to fit well with the ethos of the show and what was the Wam.

I have put my name down for a room. Don't yet know what the system will be.

re we going to meet up at Neal's (sumbeamgls) as usual?

If that's OK with Neal, how about 13:00? (If Phil remembers ;) )
