This is a cracking show Kerry and I have been for the last few years and there is a broad variety of cars, trucks etc on show.
Its £4 to book in so not a huge loss if the weather is bad.
The promoter has changed this year and it would appear all the club areas have been pre booked so we will have to book in as private entries. No booking form either, all on line.
Looking ahead to next month we are spoilt for choice again. There are 3 opportunities to get together and I will try and get to all of them.
Sat 4th June: GBS Open Day, always good for a free coffee and a chat and a nose around other cars.
Sun 19th June: Castle Bytham Midsummer Fair (http://www.midsummerfair.co.uk/)
As a Club we had a very good turn out 2 years ago with 8 cars. Last year I was away so no-one went. Let's try and go for a good turn out this year. It's a classic village fair with all the things you would expect: Craft stalls, Morris dancers, Beer, BBQ, Music, Duck Race, Dog Show.... A great day out for everyone.
Arrival/Departure times are flexible, although it would be nice to have some cars there fairly early so we can block out some of the road where we display, and I can show off the new Club Banner (thanks Steve).
I would like to give the organisers an idea of numbers, so could you either let me know or post here. So far I have:
Sun 26th June: Horsepower at the Hall (https://www.facebook...oweratthehall/) As some of you know this has been a victim of it's own success and has had to move to a bigger field at the Newark Showground. Four of us went last month and the turnout was huge, but we were parked miles apart.. And we need more Hoods Timings are nominally 13:00-17:00 although when I got there at 12:50 it was already half full. And you leave when you have had enough. This time I will arrange an RV beforehand (maybe at a pub), so we can arrive and park together.
Enjoy it !!
Some members have asked if we can try a different venue, due to the slow service for meals and irregular staffing of the bar at the Red Lion.
So, the June meet is at:
Monk's Bridge Farm
Coming eastbound from the M1 J31, take a left at the roundabout by the red lion and proceed for nearly 2 miles, and Monk's bridge is the 4th exit off the next roundabout.
Usual time of 7:30 on weds 1st June.

2£ a ticket. 3rd july. let me know if you are coming. and will contact them. we can bring as many cars as we want
We attended this show last year and it was a roaring success, everyone had such a good time.
We all arrived on Friday night, had a BBQ and a few beers then on Saturday morning put the cars on the stand, we were invited into the event arena for a bit of a show off and then finished the day with a BBQ on Saturday evening. We then put the cars back on the stand on Sunday morning.
We will follow the same format this year and the BBQ seemed to go down well.
You are welcome to come for the weekend of just the day.
I have attached the booking form and as I need to send these off together, please scan and email there to me (email@example.com) or post to 512 Braunstone Lane, Braunstone, Leicester, LE33DH.
Was a good turn out last year, lets make it a good one this year!!

As mentioned at the Kent meet last night, here are details of the Bucket & Spade run:
I think you have to carry a plastic bucket & spade (as used on the beach for sandcastles!)
I don't know if our cars qualify, so I will e-mail the ROMMCC and let you know
