Several hundred have already signed up for the show.

There should be enough space for everyone who wants to join us, but just in case, please make sure to let us know (using the email in the top post) if you're coming ASAP.

I think there's an outside chance that you may find at least one of us in the bar on Friday night Wink

We have held them up North before. Once in the Lake District and once in Edinburgh. Sadly the Edinburgh one was not well attended. These events cost a great deal of money to put on and the big exhibitors dislike locations too far away because of the logistics involved in transporting their stands and kit.

If we could guarantee a healthy attendance then we'd love to but at the moment the risk is too great.

I'd vote for that!

Only been member for a few years, only been to one meeting - Edinburgh.

Seen the Mods comment on Edinburgh. It was hardly surprising attendance was low having it that far north! The lakes meeting also alienated the south. Maybe 1 hour from Mcr but thats' got to be 4 hours+ from London.

By north I mean Manchester, maybe Leeds, at least once! Maybe as far south as Stoke or Birmingham but to have it at the extremes rules people out each time. For me to travel to Sandown is 200 mile and 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours. Edinburgh was no better. Please consider North or midlands for the future.

Finally, Is there a list of exhibitors available, that may swing it for those in 2 minds? Sorry if its stated elsewhere.

Really hope Sandown all goes well and is well attended. Smile
TTFN

My Autoroute Express says Mcr to Sandown Pk is 221.6 miles, 3hrs 43 mins. Take my advice mate and get yourself the speed camera database on your device (or start taking 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours for such trips). Laughing
