Hi 

Do you have a website for the event?  Reason I ask is like to include interesting events which are 5 to 6 months out in our local MV club newsletter.  Gives our local members a feeling for what's going on around the world.  Never know when someone will be traveling.  Should probably say our local club draws it's members from New England and eastern Canada.

Cheers Phil

Just a heads up on this event.

ive been going for a few years now and it is a great show. Fascinating location and well run. Loads to do and see, well organised, good bunch of guys n gals. 

As Commander says, no real need to book, unless you do have  any special requests or needs, just turn up and set up. I go Friday afternoon, set up tent and displays then get to the traders for bargains.

Hi Chris

no intel from others yet so no ideas what’s happening. Would be good there again, great spot. No 6 pounder tho this year I’m afraid. 

Will put feelers out and let you know. 

You going to mow your own grass or want me to use the jeep again?? 😜😜😂😂👍
