Been there done it and to be honest the last few years I think it has lost the plot

they are so successful with pulling in Joe public we seem to be more of a nuisance

to them so sorry you will not see me there this year

We used to go EVERY year it was brilliant, however once they moved the vehicle parade to the Sunday and changed the whole atmosphere of the event we stopped going. It has become apparent that we are not really welcome but a necessary evil, the showground security was pretty lax, we were herded like sheep onto buses because our fully road legal vehicles were not allowed into town, and all in all NOT a pleasant experience. The NYMR and the town LOVE the money generated but actually appear to despise the people attending. We now attend Woodhall Spa war weekend, brilliant, friendly and like Pickering used to be. I believe Pickering will gradually die a death if the organisers refuse to listen to the people attending, I along with many others voiced our concern after the first "new format" weekend but were basically told like it or lump it, well the numbers among us not going show we don't like it. :(
