Setting off shortly. Google tells me it's about 2 - 2.5 hrs away so should hopefully be there in plenty of time to exhibit.

Default Great little event!

Well, that was fun - a great call by Jim on this, and lovely to catch up with him, Christine, Mark and Lynne.

Some really interesting bits of metal, at an event that is only in it's 2nd year: next year will be bigger and even better - and maybe with a club stand for our lot ?

Sorry that I could not join you all, I was at the Liqourice Festival in Pontefract.
Thanks very much for the superb offer Steve, unfortunately I had already promised the day.
