Recommended Posts

thought id get things going ;-) really looking forward to the show as always. 4 days of it this time, cool :tup:

 

hoping to really dig deep in the vehicle bucket and bring along several jeeps, 2 x indians, Bren Carrier, Fordson 7V, VPK land rover ambulance and a 432 ;-)

 

I will put up a HMVF sign by the tent, a free beer for whoever drops in to say hello :tup:

 

Hope the wether holds up:bow: 8-)

Yeah, Baz "organises" it. Well,he belongs to the club that organises it. And he normally is the first - in the beer tent, to start a party, to play loud music, to get excessively drunk and make a fool of himself ...

 

I'm hoping we are going to have a good show this year and that the weather will be kinder than last year. Plans have been hatching since last June.

 

My personal wish is for more cold war era vehicles, especially from the Eastern bloc.

 

Plans for the show aren't set in stone so anyone that has a good idea or a gripe that they want to share is welcome to reply in here or mail or pm me and I'll pass your comments on.

 

See you all there

We're hoping to be there in the MUTT. Planning to do the usual camping arrangements but with a teeny-weeny vehicle it's going to be a challenge :). Also we'll be reduced to sleeping in cots as it doesn't have an air system. D'oh!:argh:

Hurrah! Finished work now (and its half term next week!)r cubed is there trying to put the mansion up! I have just got to pack clothes, collect the boys from school, then off we jolly well go.

Hope to bump into some of you, I will be on the public paying gate all day tomorrow, our camp is just behind the vehicle booking in tent and I will be wondering around with my white (and slightly muddy) hat on for the rest of the time. Do stop and say hello :)

Have a good weekend wherever you are.

As kids we used to play on this Grant when It lay abandoned on the former anti tank firing range between Lightwater and Camberley Surrey, the now restored Jagpanzer was next to it
