Just spent most of last night and all of today to this very minute putting our boats away, well, I lie, we left them in the van and had a massive tidy up of the boat shed!
Surprising what we found, or should I say re-discovered, mainly some lead ballast Dad was eying up until I remembered what it was for!
Well, what else can I add, what a fantastic show!
I think I met a lot of the Mayhemers who came to the show, to name a few
Martin (of course, you can't miss that shirt!)
Chuffy… and many more
I think I must have bought Simon of Prop shop entire supply of props, or it felt like it! At least I won't be worrying about props for anytime soon.
I must thank Steve Dean for allowing me to display my HMS Gnat on the pool during his Speciality Slot, it was a thoroughly enjoyable time on the water and hope to continue next year with another project.
There was certainly a huge amount of new boats on display, and to echo many other members on the forum, it was the best show at Warwick I have ever displayed with. Apart from the initial shock of not being able to find our stand on Thursday afternoon, and seeing Phil without his teeth and hat
we had no problems setting up and hope next year is as easy.
I would also like to add thanks to Meridienne Exhibitions for organising the show, everything from my point of view went like clockwork, so a very well deserved thank you to Chris and his team for setting up the show.
As for pictures they are currently downloading on to my computer and as soon as it is complete I will put them onto the forum.
Oh, and of course, we missed you Stavros and Mrs Stav!
