So sad to hear, but it was almost inevitable.  Lets get 2020 over with as soon as we can and hope for better in 2021.

A great effort Iain, but I think we all understand, until next year.

Given the On/off situation last year I would imagine that they will be waiting to see how the situations progresses over the next few months ( Although I suspect things may happen in the background) and gauge interest in how many might actually go, I for one will not likely be going to any major events this year.

Iím glad Iím not the only one.
No large gatherings for us until 2022 I find it hard to believe how quickly people are ready to dive in so soon.
We look forwards to days away and away from crowds
Doncaster will be my next show.


Edit
It just occurred to me that at my current build rate I may need my own table by then  {-) {-)
Have a word with Mr King  please Butts  :-)

There are so many "ifs" still relevant.
If no new variants emerge that reduce vaccine effectiveness.
If there isn't a winter upsurge from October.
If the vaccines keep virtually everyone out of hospital.
If the vaccine uptake in younger age groups is high enough to put a lid on infections.
If we are all sensible when restrictions are lifted and the R" and "K" rates don't spike.
If the lockdowns haven't changed people's behaviour to the extent that they won't go to large indoor events.
If traders still exist and are wiling to commit.

It is, I think, too early to know enough answers to make public announcements.
 
I do feel great sympathy for the organisers who must put in a lot of work that cannot be left until later and might, again, see it all wasted. Do they have the courage, and financial backing, to keep trying?

Most early booking systems have an option where you insure your booking to get a full refund should you need to cancel up to the last day or so  Last time I did it, about an extra £2 on a £100 deal.


I've got to agree with Tug Fanatics list of ifs , though.  Looking around from the relative safety of the inside of my car when I am exercising it to move the oil around, if it is a nice day, there seem to be huge crowds wandering the lake park.  Last summer they seemed to largely consist of people from high rate areas who were indulging in family gatherings in a low rate area.  The 5th and 6th ifs are probably crucial, and the Great British public has never been noted for mass sensibility.

I'm of the same mindset as you Andy, this last year has flown by so waiting another year isn't going to hurt. (might even finish a model by then)  %)

Sadly these are very difficult times for not only us model boaters but for the exhibitions that were, and may not be for another year.It looks unlikely that I will be able to get back to the UK at present for either regatta's (oh they are not happening) or model shows.....all still up in the air. A pity as I miss my modelling  friends, but as we are all aware, safety first. Another year in the big scheme of things is nothing compared to our safety, sad times I know, and may I quote Larry (the long build) I would probably not attend any shows this year as (how can I put it !) I am of an age  {:-{  and over here our vaccine is .....well.......who knows....not coming our way.
Keep safe, and maybe have a thought about shows (sorry to my organiser friends...)

We all wish to get back sailing and supporting the model shows and club events. I personally think 2021 will be a white wash once again. The road map is full of if buts and maybes should any shows go ahead how many people will support them.
