Hello,


Spent a very enjoyable day at the Show today.
Displayed two of my large Yachts on their stands.
Small table with a  photo album in between the boats and my comfy chair behind them.
LOTS of room !!.
Huge Hall, no problems at all.
Early night now, then back again tomorrow!.

Going as a paying visitor, I appreciated that there was a (vintage) shuttle bus between the car parking and show venue.  Outdoors, a really nice pool.  Indoors, I hope that more clubs get interested.  While there was a good selection of models to see, and it was worth my while as a shopping trip, there was a lot of potential space that cries out for filling. 
Hopefully more clubs and traders will join in with future shows there, and that the venue becomes a fixture.

Just had two enjoyable days at Hooton Park.
I think the Ellesmere Port Boat Club guys did a very good job for a first show at a new venue with all the problems that come with organizing it.
What other show gives free rides on vintage busses.
They also had an air raid experience to partake in.
A sea cadet band playing at intervals.
Lovely cakes on the scouts stand.
Good selection on the bring and buy.
Oh nearly forgot a nice display of boats by the clubs who attended.
Enough traders for me to get all the bits I needed.
As malcolmfrery has said there is space to expand the show.
Ellesmere Port Boat Club used all the space to the best advantage with no empty tables.

The pond was well used with boats on all day on both days.

We also have just got back from two excellent days at the new show. 

What's not to like, an amazing world war one airfield, great pond for sailing and an easily accessed exhibition hall.

Well done to Steve and all at Ellesmere Port Club.  Looking forward to future events. I reckon though if it went to an earlier date it could be a little difficult in such a large unheated space.  It's easy to see why the later date was chosen, but I agree it's difficult fitting a date in to suit all.
