    Just by way of an update and reminder, the original flyer apparently had the wrong postcode printed on it so here is the correct one.

    I won't be able to make it but I do hope that those attending will have a great day.

    Looking forward to attending this year. Hard to believe how different the weather is!

    Definitely a visit to the Finney7 stand on the books.

    Are we arranging an ad hoc WT meet? Perhaps 11 at the F7 stand. Should we identify ourselves with a carnation behind the left ear?

    Hmm, might be a bit on the heavy side. :confused:

    Nice idea Heather. I've seen you before I think on the old JLTRT stand but don't think we have ever spoken. I'm sure there are others on here I've talked to electronically but have unknowingly walked past at shows.

    Oh, there’s loads of those. We had meets more often a few years ago, but now we know each other it’s more of a "nod as you pass"!

    I'll look out for someone with a straw boater and flannel trousers? We have a Bulleid light pacific set to one side if sir would like to succumb ;)

    That's because they see you first :p Look forward to meeting, I've always missed you in the past, bad habit of mine going walkabout on a whim lol.
