Don't worry Alan the lake is at the correct height when we were last there on Sunday.
The ground is drying out so hopefully the tents won't become muddy too quickly!

Thanks Bill D203  let's hope it doesn't rain too much this time :-))

Just realised how whoever called Andy from Models by Design might have got the impression that Wicksteed Park is flooded.
I sent out a precaution email informing everyone involved warning that the area used around the lake and railway was boggy and it might be worthwhile planning for a back up location near the lake for the traders incase of inclement conditions or if it had not dried up in time.
If anything a few weeks ago the water was pouring out of the lake through an overflow which was discovered by Wicksteed Park after they unplugged it! So we have bunged it up again and the water has returned to the correct depth, enough for Stravros and Phil to wade to their hearts content! :-))

I certainly hope to be there, though it looks like I may have to go to Bristol that weekend now, but hopefully even if I do I can still make it to mayhem for 1 day.... will know by the end of this week.

Cheers mate, if I do pop over it will only be for a few hours with the grandkids, like many others I've got other stuff on that weekend now.
Never had a go with a Springer before, not sure if it's fast enough for me  {-) {-) {-)

Was it not the drain plug rather than the overflow ? Lakes can't go any lower than an overflow unless by leakage or evaporation  O0

Im sure someone going would have the size prop you need? Why not put size, type etc. Maybe useful if your replacement doesn't arrive in time, Dave.
