    Default Wartime in the Vale, 22 & 23 June, Ashdown WW2 Camp, Evesham, Worcestershire

    Hi Guys,
    I'm pleased to announce that the South Midlands area of the MVT will be hosting this show again on 22 & 23 June. Whilst its not the National Show on this occasion, the MVT have kindly given us a substantial grant towards our costs.

    With all the positive press coverage we've had, we are planning for an even bigger turnout. Ok we won't have as many Champs as last year but I'm sure that as we will also be celebrating 65 Years of Land Rovers we should still reach around 400 military vehicles.

    I'm also hopeful that we will have a great display in the skies, as I spoke with the RAF Events Team today ref our application for the BBMF & was told that we are due to have the Spitfire, Hurricane & Lancaster on the Saturday & the Dakota on the Sunday! Nearly fell off my chair when told. Obviously its subject to confirmation due mid-Feb.

    Our Landowner Bob James has also been busy around the camp & has just built three more nissen huts to house more displays. 1st one is a new Home Front Display, 2nd for a new RAF Operations room & 3rd is yet to be decided, suggestions on a post card please as they say. (See pic below, but excuse my dodgy cut & paste for the new nissens, will hopefully take a new aerial pic later in the year)

    He's also moved the Pickett-Hamilton Fort to the middle of the arena to make for a more interesting battle.
    If you've not been before we've got a decent sized arena, the size of a football pitch with a couple of mounds of earth to drive over.

    As always we are very keen to include vehicles within dioramas rather than just lined up, so if you are happy to park up with an appropriate group or have any suggestion then please let me know.

    For more information please visit the events page on: www.ashdowncamp.webs.com

    Registration of Vehicles
    Forms for MVT members are due to be included with the next Greensheet Magazine, due later in January.

    Non MVT members very welcome.

    If you want to save money on postage you can register online at:
    http://www.freewebs.com/ashdowncamp/...vehiclereg.htm
    (though if entering more than one vehicle, its best to use paper based form)

    So I hope you can join us & do please contact me if any queries.
    Thanks Paul

    That's good to hear Paul.

    I was getting worried as it is not listed on MVT site events calendar when I looked an hour ago.

    Hello Clive,
    It was just me being a bit slow & distracted with other commitments. Spent the day at home today just posting on the many sites so should be up on the MVT site soon.
    cheers

    Thanks for the support, we are very lucky that Bob keeps on finding nissen huts & displays, here are a couple of pics of the new Home Front display & when I'm there later in the month I'll take a pic of rhe Ops room as thats looking good too.
    cheers

    For anyone thats not attended, this as got to be the premier show in the country, its 100% plus. We are very lucky that we have members (Bob James) that are willing to make such a great effort to go that extra mile. Well done to all concerned with this event.
