Ok, so this might be a daft question, but can I turn up on Saturday and park with you guys and head home at the end of the day?

I have a truck, buts it's a bare box at the moment, and I live just up the road. Not sure the good lady would want to sleep in it at the moment.

Cheers,

Darren

Darren I think you are being a wimp, I dragged Lynn along to our first AO in the truck with an empty box, a sleeping bag and a camp stove :D :D
See you there lad :D

We will hopefully be there, but it won't be in the truck unfortunately (unless I do a smokey and the bandit-esque overnight illegal run :lol: )

We'll be up in the Vito. Hopefully we will be able to catch up with everyone :D

I am currently now in St. Neots and will be leaving for the venue tomorrow, Wednesday.

According to "my man on the ground" Simon, there is a slight change on our location, which sounds interesting at the moment.

Instead of crossing the race track and turning left, you will now go straight across the track and keep going. I will need to see it myself to give better directions, but it sounds like we have most of the field to play in! As much as we like!

This is sounding exciting, nearer the lecture rooms etc....

I will post again tomorrow when I get a chance, assuming tinterweb connection of course...

That sounds similar to the setup for the Spring Show this year. It was straight across the wood chip track and then straight to a 'holding area', where you had to go and see the officials in the tent. It soon turned into the Somme!

I do not think it is there. I went to the "holding area" last year as I arrived late, and like you say, it was a bit soft.

I will find out later today when I get there.... I have my wellies with me just in case!

Always fun,

B.
