I was very dismayed to learn the procceds from the bring and buy were not being donated to the RNLI as was advertised
Due to a late emergency, compounded with a relatively minor misunderstanding, Mark was left thinking that we as club would be unable to run the B&B, and laid out cash to make sure that an alternative was in place using volunteers who preferred a different way of working.  As it happened, this was unnecessary, but by the time we both found out each others' situation, it was too late.  Mark did promise to send the RNLI a cheque to compensate for our lack of donation of what would have been our 10% commission.  A pity to break a continuous effort of club members giving freely of their time at every show since 1997, when we started, but these things happen.

Hi Tony or TT1. Did you manage to work out how to wire up Action units after our long conversation on Saturday. I must agree that  the lighting in this hall needs to improve.

Nope you are quite right Tony, dark, you could be around it within an hour, and the bring and buy was charging totally rip off prices for selling your boat. \not to mention the price of the tea at the tea bar! Roll on the March modellers at Ellesmere Port.
Do you mean to say,that had i brought my boats down for sale,i,d have to pay someone else just for the privilage,
Christ! I could have done what i saw being done a couple of years ago,boats being sold from the back of a van in the car park,

Wullie
mind you,it does happen up here,a 5 flat fee if you,re selling anything,....not per item,...5 and thats it,

Ha, ha, ha, you can't outdo Martin or Mark on the shirt front.  {-)  The Maersk Line ship is mine of course, the cap gives it away. She's a Graupner Sydney Star with a few modifications, named after my better half DoubleDiamond. Going to start my 8ft container ship soon, doing her on 1/96 scale I think. Hopefully she'll be ready for Wicksteed next year as long as I don't bust leg again.  :embarrassed:  Should look good on the water so long as she'll fit in the car! Will start a build thread on her so keep watching, Warwick next, see you soon, Dave... :-))

How does the Warwick show compare with Blackpool and Warrington?
Bigger? same traders?

Yes the Severn Belongs to a good friend and has a JJC sound system installed. The main Reason it sounds so good is the way the speaker is installed. you can see more of it on our website. www.lifeboatmodels.co.uk
