Thanks for letting us know Neil,and sorry to hear of your accident.I am sure everyone will join me in wishing you well,and that you are soon given something to ease the pain you must be going through.I promise not to tell everyone you tripped over your duvet,I will let them all picture that in their own minds  :embarrassed: :embarrassed:
 I am not anticipating too much work involved in setting up the display stand,the hardest part will be setting up the tables,so any help with that will be very much appreciated.The display will be to show off the models themselves,nothing fancy,just a video player and small television to play RNLI associated DVD,s.Margaret will be laying the cloths on the tables,with RNLI Flags around the edges.
      Now I must put out an urgent appeal please? Neil has stated that he will be sitting while attending the show,so if someone could bring a rubber ring,preferably large size,for him to ease the pressure on his rear end,it would be appreciated.I'm sure he will be able to make it to the loo,when required,but there are trolley's in the hall we can use,and if a dire emergency,we will of course have buckets that can be used .. :-)) :-))
  We have a good selection of models on display,and we can squeeze in a few more if anyone hasn't booked with me.
 We are looking forward to a great show,with some laughs,and there is a rumour that we could be getting some cake!
 See you all soon!!!

There will be plenty of people around who are generally only too happy to help whenever help is needed. I doubt that it will be a problem.

I was at the Norbreck yesterday & was amazed to see the new floor they have put in, looks really good.

Is it just a trick of the camera, or is the hall a different shape?

It's a panoramic view. Just really to show the super shiny new floor & also how light & bright the Norbreck is now - after so many years of having a reputation for being a bit on the "dingy" side.

I was kind of expecting that the complaints would shift from "it's a bit dim in here" to " it's a bit too bright in here" I guess you know when you have it right when they complain it is too bright at the same time they complain its too dim!

Well with 8 days to go to the show it is looking Darned good and what I believe to be the best yet with Clubs attending from Ireland and the Isle of man to name just 2,there are well over 25 Clubs displaying their models let alone a host of individual exhibitors,WHO or which club will take home the trophy for the Best stand....Time will tell.


Traders are also up in Attendance with some new ones as well.


The show guide for this year is at the Moment on it's way to the printers and I know today some of the show infastructure is winging it's way up to the Hall.


There will be refreshments available in the Ballroom provided by the Hotel....sandwiches tea coffe and a seating area for your wary feet !!


Also as a lot of you will already know this but there is a Chippy just at the back of the hotel the Norbreak Chippy which is situated at the end of the shops.


There is Also a cash Machine located in the same row of shops at the back of the Hotel.


Rumour has it this year we MIGHT be getting a visit form one of our Mayhemers showing his Wares....Ill reveal all when it come off......I if Memory serves me right our Illustious leader complete with his brightly coloured  shirt's is attending.


I will obviously be there at the Hotel from Thursday aft ready for my night shift of marking the hall out ready for the lads form the clubs to place all the tables out on Fri Am ready for the onslaught of clubs and Traders to arrive.


If you want any info then don't hesitate to contact Iain or Myself and we will only be to glad to help.




Dave....Im the one in the corner having a pint and Having a nervous breakdown...HA HA

    IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING PARKING

Right then this is VERY IMPORTANT and TAKE NOTE of what we are saying.

Parking at the Hotel is FREE BUT BUT BUT you will NEED to give your car REGISTRATION when you pay for your ticket at the entrance, PLEASE if you don't know it or cant remember it then write it down prior to gaining entry....

If you FAIL to give your car registration at the show entrance and get a parking ticket the Show organisers will NOT BE HELD responsable and ALSO if you give us the incorrect car registration the same will apply.

All TRADERS and CLUBS should have given us their car and van registrations.....IF NOT see Me or Iain .

We will be during the day be taking the registrations to the hotel so they can be inputed into their system...we will be holding a copy of all car registrations.

There will be ample signage around the venue to remind you ALL of what to do in regards of the parking....even on the ticket machines.

PLEASE DO NOT BOTHER HOTEL RECEPTION WITH YOUR CAR REGISTRATION....LEAVE THAT TO THE SHOW ORGANISERS


I make no appology for so called shouting on this post it is obvious WHY



Iain and Dave....Show organisers
