Are you there all three days Ben? ........and is there a GW stand, or are you demonstrating under your own name?
 
Weather permitting, I'll catch up with you, and any other GW member I find,  on Friday.

Hi Mike,

All being well I'll be there all three days. Pretty sure I'm competing in the university challenge for most of Sunday.

I haven't received a timetable for the demonstrations yet so not sure when I'll be needed. Try the My Hobby Store stand. They should be able to tell you where I am.
 
Look forward to seeing you there!

I would love to go but, with my 25th wedding anniversary coming up and health issues, it tells me otherwise  
 
Just looking at the 40 odd traders that 'should' be there I'm wondering if there was a few who could join in the donations to the contests we have here Ben.........would be nice wouldn't it.

 I'm not going this year, nothing to do with the weather,
 Wishing Sparky a happy 25th, and glad to see him back posting,again, hope his health is improving , Sparky did you realise you would have been out in half the time if you had been sent to jail just joking I will have served  44 years this year no sign of a reprieve

Hi George
Many thanks my friend..............
Health issues are ongoing....waiting for more results
 
 "A happy wedded life is a dream".........its more like a flaming nightmare!!
 
I wonder if I'll get to 44 if I spend all my time in the shed.........


Cheers mate

Hope the show all goes off well, sadly i cant make it funds are far too low this side of christmass. Shame i was hoping to go after such a long break.
 
Ben maybe you could find a couple of prizes for the turners some time ?
 
Have a great time all who do go.

Sorry to have missed you Ben.........but a nice girl from the Hobby Store advertising department recognised me from my avatar.  That made me smile! I also had a chat with Andy King........nice guy.........the fact that he had time for 10 minutes chewing the cud with me shows how busy the show wasn't this morning. I thik the poor chap is going to have a long weekend!
 
I'm sure others will post on their experience.........but there was to my mind a bit missing from the show. There was very little in the way of hand-tools...............Ashley Iles was a notable exception, and there was a small Clifton presence (I've realised that my old nameless 4-1/2 is actually quite a decent bit of kit, because it can do everything that the Clifton equivalent can do).........
 
But the thing I really miss is a decent display of quality joinery. A few prize winners, or professional pieces, would have been much appreciated. There were, of course, lots of round things to look at.
 
Anyway, I hope the rest of you enjoyed it.......
 
Mike
