York is my favourite exhibition of the year. It's the one my Father started taking me to years ago, and we've never missed one yet. It's also one of the few opportunities I get to catch up with the artist John Wigston - one of my favourite artist if the paintings on the walls of my house and office are anything to go by.

....and possibly stopping off before the Maltings at the Chinese buffet nearby for 'all you can eat' for £8 ?? (I think it's that after 6pm.....) :rolleyes:

 

I shall be there at the exhibition, the Maltings and the Chinese, and anywhere else we can get to, probably with the South Wales lads.

 

Penlan - West Cornwall :P

....... and of course once homeward bound to the digs, through Micklegate and there's the chippie opposite the cinema, open to midnight and serving traditional Chips w'e Gravy, or for the more cosmipolitan, Chips w'e Curry Sauce, there's sometimes side dishes still available like pie or fish.. laugh.gif

 

Penlan - my wife's not so sure about coming wiith me now, but the hotel is booked, so that's it - not an exhibitor either, just a groupie this year.....

Ooops, missed the OP first few times......

 

Hope Mike is comfortable, presumably this means he will not be seen at the show this year.

 

His book 'The Show Goes On' re. the history of York Exhibition is still available at the Barbican Book Shop (In York, not London) at 2.50 GBP, or at least last November it was.

I will be making a day trip on the Sunday. As it is a 3 hour drive each way this means no ale for me [grrr] but you guys who are there for the duration deserve to enjoy yourselves out of hours!

 

If RMWeb meets haven't gone out of fashion let's have one somewhere.

I have not seen the floor plan yet but presume New Hey will be on the ground floor - folk are welcome to meet here.

New Hey is on the ground floor, not far from the "main staircase". A good place for a RMweb meet up.

Even for the upper floors there are plenty of lifts at York if you can manage to snag one off the "whinging" traders :icon_grumpy:

Stand 41 facing the main windows - and back to back with Calne and Peffermill Road in an EM enclave. That should make for some good banterrolleyes.gif

Never mind the banter, I expect some good operation, or you will all be sent to the Headmaster's office :icon_thumbsdown2: :icon_mutter:

So, hotel booked a year ago, various meet-up's organised, car in fine fettle, etc. etc. and then broke two bones in my right wrist, plus fractured a bone in the thumb on Saturday night.

 

Now a whole lot of plaster for 6 weeks, so apart from a considerable minus in brownie points domesticaly - I do (did) most of the driving - this means my visit to York is off. I know I could come by train, but there was a cunning plan involving visiting relations either way too (to improve the original brownie points tally - scuppered).

 

So, Jumbo's and the Maltings is out, learning to write and type left handed now main focus.

 

How....? Returning (walking) from the Pirates Rugby Club in Penzance towards Newlyn, around midnight on Saturday, I fell off a flat footpath and my right hand took the full weight of my body - OK there was 3' drop to another path, but the lighting was not very good B) - great night before that though....... but had to miss the Sunday lunchtime Jazz Club.

Sandy,

 

sorry to hear that, it's so annoying when you disrupt your modelling activities and other plans.

 

Regards,

As I'm about to leave in the next few minutes for Cuba and I wont be back till the day before the show I will say a quick good bye and I hope to meet a few of you at the York show.

 

I will be with the EBOR group operating Rowntree Halt but more than likely chin waging rather than operating....:rolleyes:

 

So hope to see you there,:icon_wave:

 

Darren.
