Thank you Gareth, my pass turned up yesterday and is safely pinned to our noticeboard so I don't lose it.
Looking forward to see you Friday.  Hopefully I'll be in time to help with the stand this time!
Thanks,
Richard.

From Frank Melling's Facebook page:

Quote
The official Guests of Honour are Guy Martin and Phillip McCallen but we have heard a very reliable rumour that the legendary Jim Redman himself might make an appearance at the show on both days.

That should make your day!

Have a good weekend, we are off to East Fortune for the Melville Club's "Festival of Sidecars", plus various odds and sods of solos, including Classics.  ;D Weather supposed to settle and warm to 14°C, all being well. So, will break out the Factor 50!  8)  Fresh snow down to 2,500' on Ben Vorlich this morning and clear as a bell again tonight.

Good health, Bill

Just arrived home from a great weekend at the show, great to catch up with Gareth, Graham, Ian, John and Richard. Also nice to meet Gary and his wife Denise. Had some good laughs and a few beers also. Boy was it cold on Friday night sleeping (NOT a lot of it) in the back of the van. Still didn’t dampen the spirits to much but still don’t think I’ve fully recovered from the mild case of hypothermia I think I got 😉🤪. As always Gareth and Graham’s hospitality is above and beyond. So can I just say a big thanks to both you guys for sorting everything out, much appreciated 👍
Cheers, Michael

May I echo Michael's sentiments in every way, apart from the fact that I had the advantage of going home both nights to a lovely warm bed. Thanks to Gareth and Graham for always going the extra mile to make sure we have a great weekend away. Hope we can repeat in October.
The opposite balcony wasn't too bad was it 🤔?

Yes, a brilliant weekend. Like Michael I was absolutely freezing on Friday night but. Also didn't dampen enthusiasm too much on Saturday, aided by Gareth's usual supply of sandwiches and this year's addition of hot food on the stand! Fantastic.
Graham's amazing "pub cellar" was great. Should have won a prize.
Great time, great company. Already looking forward to October.
Thanks Michael, I'm sure I'll be able to sort out something with the rack.
Thanks again to Gareth and Graham for another great weekend.
Cheers
Richard

WELL... quite clearly a camera man with very little taste. Johns BSA complete with Graham’s excellent cellar backdrop doesn’t even get the slightest, fleeting glimpse on camera. All one can say is “there really is no accounting for taste”
Still... thanks for posting it up Ian 😉👍
Cheers, Michael
