will be there also, I am negotiating with the domestic authority to see if we can attend both days!

 

Will we be able to pitch our civy tent behind my display, or is it in a seperate area?

Hi, just a quick update to say that over 250 have now registered with more still booking in so still on track for 300+, hurray.

 

Very pleased to see quite a few members from here booking in & pleased that hummermark is due to bring his Leopard Mk 1 with Faun Transporter, Dave with his Foden Drops & a few other interesting vehicles like a White Half-track, an M20 and the list goes on...

 

The Dakota has been confirmed for the Saturday & might even have something for the Sunday.

 

And of course we have even more re-enactors supporting this event.

 

Plenty of militaria stalls for you guys to have a rummage, 38 at the moment with more booking in.

 

FREE entertainment on the Friday & Saturday night with Kitten-Von-Mew, Fiona Harrison & DJ Woody.

 

So do please download form if you can make it or do ask if any queries.

I'll start to send passes out next week, so please bear with me.

cheers

Paul

Paul, have you sent out the show forms yet as I haven't received mine so far?

 

Also my mate wants to come, but isn't taking his truck as he is coming up from Cornwall, but wants to come up in his van with his 12x12. He is an MVT member. Can he just turn up, he will be with me?

 

Cheers

 

Andy

Hello Andy,

Yes you are registered & I'll start sending passes this coming week.

 

Whilst it is free for MVT members to visit during the day we do need to charge a fee for camping if not bringing a vehicle. Public camping is normally £25 for the weekend but can do for £15 as an HMVF or MVT member. pm sent.

 

Now up to 280 military vehicles.

 

And meant to mention earlier that Nick Johns will be running his cinema in one of the nissen huts.

The pass has arrived, so I will be there with my Russian GAZ 69. This is my first season in military vehicle and second time my truck will be displayed. Looking forward to being there. Hope the field is big enough to acommodate all those vehicles!? :shocked:

More good news today - took a call from our local contact at the Linc's Lancs Association who said that in addition to the Dakota coming on Saturday there is a very strong possibility that we will have the Lancaster, Spitfire & Hurricane on the Sunday, as they are also scheduled to flypast Wellesbourne & Cheltenham & drawing a straight line that means coming over us, so I'm very very pleased.
