This show is on the Bank Holiday Monday and there is normally a few southern guys that attend.
I may well turn up at some point as well.

My local show, I'll be there tomorrow anyone else going?
If you haven't registered I doubt you will get in as it is now over subscribed, there is over 1100 pre registered cars so should be a good show.

Went along on two wheels this morning but the queue for tickets stretched for several 100s of yards so I decided not to wait. I'm just too impatient to stand around for an hour in a field. When I left cars where still arriving in large numbers. I hope those who did get in enjoyed themselves.

Yes it was much bigger and busier then previous years, i managed to get in as an exhibit despite not having a ticket (not in a dolly though) glad i did the public queue to get in looked horrendous.

Just watching the aircraft on approach to landing, nothing suspicious Chris.

Great day good to see everyone. The public queue was massive I don't think they were expecting such a large turnout.

And Hello from us as well.
I'm afraid we arrived late in SWK. But it was apparant that the Car-parking marshaling was not good. We were first steered to an area where if we had parked there would have meant that our 3rd line of cars would have boxed everybody else in :-( So we continued on down and another marshal steered us towards a line of cars close to the entrance gate with spaces in !
No queue for tickets on the way in and I was happy to meet Tony & Brian. The loos got 2/10 and the food 4/10. There were some good bargains to be had on the stalls.
As for getting out ... we joined the queue at 3:20 and didn't get out until 4:30. :shock:
They should have made the exit gate 1 way with two left /right turning traffic queues.
Next year ?
Probably...
Tony.

Wow! :wary: I'm glad I opted to tile the kitchen instead now!

I might try to get a pilots license for next year.. If only to avoid that queue!

Hello to all the braver souls than me who went along..and thanks for the pictures. 8)
