Hi Guy

Less of the  salad munchers!  :-)   My carnivore (or more accurately omnivore) partner eats more tasteless green stuff than I do!!   We need our protein too, we just get it from different sources.   Actually betwen us we're a right pair.   I'm veggie and Type II diabetic and she's dairy and egg intolerant so eating out can be fun at times   :(( :((

We used to share a lot of Quorn based products but we can't do that any longer as they're bound with egg white and it seems to be the albumne that she reacts to.


Cheers

I think boats are usually safe left lying about,
However guard your bacon, Sausage, Burgers & Beer
for dear life.

Wicksteed is a secure site but I wouldn't if I were you.
 We locked all our stuff away in car boots last year.
 There may be room in the Wicksteed MBC lockup but you'll need to make that arrangement with them yourself.

Have got everything booked. We can get all the camping stuff in the car but i have just fitted a tow bar and am scouring Ebay for a trailer for sale.

Car has got bulb sensors and all sorts of other electrickery on it. Tow bars are not as easy as they used to be...

Last year on the Saturday night after the evening sail the guy who runs the railway kindly allowed us to put our boats on to the train which was then run into the station for the night behind securely locked gates and a security fence. As Martin says, probably not best to leave gear around the pondside overnight. Who knows what the local pondlife might get up to?

I really envy you lot as I shall miss the show this year, it's shaping up to be really good.
