I have enjoyed this show in my past visits.

I thought last year was supposed to be an /anniversary only' 2-day show? I guess it was successful! :biggrin_mini2:

That is true - and we convinced ourselves it was a one-off. But it went well and lots of feedback suggested we should make it a two-day show...so here we are!

Very much looking forward to the exhibition, hoping it'll continue to add to the legacy of the late Terry Silver.

Perhaps some constructive suggestions for coming years would be better than just a negative comment.

 

But then you have a history of being negative towards this exhibition?

One critical comment does not make 'a history of being negative towards this exhibition' and my comment was not as critical as others concerning the 2015 event.Regrettably the trade at the MK show isn't as good as it used to be, why I don't know, perhaps the new customers with their kids aren't buying at the trade stalls, so the traders go elsewhere. Adding  Sunday to this event has improved it as it's a lot less crowded, particularly on the Sunday afternoon but the reduced trade is an issue for the enthusiast, though not for the parents of the young families who probably can't afford much anyway. This an expensive game.

Trade at exhibition's certainly isn't what it once was, but you could have said the same maybe ten or twenty years ago. But it is what it is, and is a reflection of the hobby in 2020.

 

Still, at least the link worked for you, the thought police have filtered it out for me...

I did on the phone, odd that it was filtered.

 

Judging by the weather warnings it isn't very wise to go far this weekend. Think I'll stay home.
