At last my promotion to tea boy is confirmed  :-)
Have started to dust off the boats ready for the exhibition, putting a shopping list together, and trying to work out how to hide my 20 from certain members of the trade  {-) {-)

Phil, You could put a prop on your new red & yellow teeth and enter them in 'Steve's Speciality Slot'. That's of course if you can Lego of them !!!!
So it's tea all round, plus cakes from Debs. Perhaps we should spend the illusive 20 note on ice creams. Guy and I would like one of those with a big chocolate flake .. ta very much.

Build up all done, lots of good models this year.They have changed the tables sizes, which has thrown a few clubs, as their space is smaller, last seen: Graham and the King Lear club building up !  O0  looks like a small Chitin Itza.. {-)   Steve has made his nest by the pool, and this year there are a few bouys for you to hit (or miss) %% , I am by between Ron Dean and the Vintage Model Boat Company....safety of my 20 not looking good.. <:(
Managed tea (of course) they were offering free chocolate bars....yeah like that works, I would have to suck it death.....thinking of asking Martin from Macs Mouldings to resin cast me a set, at least I might be able to sample the Steak & Kindney pie..... :embarrassed:
And I forgot my hat !!!! >>:-(  so was not reconised for several hours (beard did not help...will be clean shaven tomorrow)  ok2

Certainly confused us with the new table and club positions, we were panicking because we couldn't find our stand until we asked!
We only managed to spot Phil because of his 4x4 battle wagon parked outside with a strange beardy man pointing to his mouth and saying that he was fed up with soup! {-)
Tried to see the fabled 20 note but he has hidden it further, no longer in his left hand pocket! {-)
Got a little present for him tomorrow but only if he's good!


Wicksteed park stand up and running, waiting for tomorrow's onslaught... :-))

The parking area was passable until this last lot of rain, now not so good. I left at 15.00 and it was pretty soggy.

Just arrived back from the show.  Parking area was passable when leaving but the rain was pouring down and the parking area was getting a little boggie.  If the rain kept going after we left (around 3pm), and continues into the night then I'm glad I decided to take a day off work to go today!!  It may well be a bit of a quagmire tomorrow. 
 
Show was very good with a good turnout from clubs and traders alike and some nice models on show.
 
Only a couple of annoying asides - the biggest irritant being the sound trader with the incessant duck quack quack sound module next to  Dave Metcalfe's stand.  Never been a supporter of shooting ducks.  I am now! Bit of a chore to have a discussion about buying a boat when all you can hear is QUACK QUACK.     >:-o
 
Sorry didn't take any pics too busy admiring some folks models and spending the wallet contents.  Which are all gone now.

just got back from day one of the show..... the car park is ok, but the rain was coming down as we left, it may be abit boggy if it keeps going all night....


lots of interesting club displays, the Manx club display was very good !- there was some interesting new models on show,


there was bloke in a very bright shirt taking lots of photos...... and there seemed to be a fair amount of business being done on the trade stands....so i think everyone had a good first day.....


missed the welsh womble, and slipway and hunters, and ray malone ... its not the same without you guys.....


going back tomorrow for a slice of deb's cake and to spend some money which i didnt do today  due to too much talking !

Great show, only got about quarter way round but met up with loads a great Mayhemers & friend!   Special thanks to the integral meeting of Mayhem at Wicksteed 2014 committee.... in case you were wondering what we were conspiring about.

Car park soggy but holding up very well,  roadways not  muddy, even shoes clean.

Lots of different boats on show, didn't get near pool but I hear lots of action!

Yes I have loads of photos but I only brought tablet so nearly impossible to transfer photos from camera to Mayhem....  :((    plus really crap WiFi in hotel.  >:-o

See you there again tomorrow.
