I have often wondered if it would be possible to arrange a holiday ‘down there’ and gatecrash the SWAG do.

Perhaps this is the year that I get to not do it.

Couldn't agree more BoD with my not umpiring I have a free weekend so could have fired up the car and created havoc in Taunton.. Pah!

Sorry, fair cop (I started it)!

 

Serious point, as this is a fund-raiser, I shared the idea for the event with members of the family and they think it’s a great idea.

Hi Guys, 

This sounds like a brilliant event, and I've come a bit late to it.  Is there a description somewhere of how to take part, or what sort of software/apps I need?

Thanks very much, Dave.

Excellent!

 

Just pack up the virtual layout, save some petrol money and virtually show one of your layouts off with pics or video in the topic I'll open up on the Sunday morning.

 

There will be a separate topic set up for the Sunday for the virtual demos and off we go.

I look forward to virtually attending as to keep my 100% Attendance record up. 
 

Due to space in my Broadband I could virtually visit with a couple of layouts and quite a bit of stock..

having made the real trip a couple of times, I'll try to bring  along  some 'Work in Progress'. Having the real 'Work in Progress'  it'll make a change. This will mean that 'Work in Progress' will make a virgin trip down the stairs in 5 years. 

 

I might bring along Mrs. Smiths' supercharged whisky Christmas cake. Subject to negotiation, of course. Parking here is pretty good on a Sunday, but only after 10am

 

Being a complete, 5-star internet Klutz, this will be interesting. Strangely, I'm looking forward to it.

 

keep safe, everyone,

Ian.

Is there room outside for a Virtual Miniature Railway Andy?

 

I think there'll be space in the car park this year Steve but I've had a better idea; you can run the shuttle service from Taunton Station for those not coming.

I would normally come along with Raymond and James but this year they will have to make their own way there.

A most agreeable plan.... Let me fire up the welder and get some more track made!

I was looking for old photos of the setting up the hall from previous years (so we'll know what doesn't need doing this year) and feel I've been hacked by Black Rat...

The beer & chips image was also part of the preparations last year by a couple of the exhibitors - this session was closely followed by a visit to the tap house at BL and then the Lethbridge Arms...

We're having a virtual planning meeting here today but nobody seems to have any concrete ideas at the moment.  Just as well really.

Since I shan't be demonstrating, none of this applies to me.

We're getting some incredible trade support for the event and to extend the fundraising beyond the planned charity auction I'll be opening up a prize raffle around the middle of this week which will run through to the end of Sunday.

Yes, I know I'm going to give myself migraines next week. I will be writing a "You have 24 hours to respond or forfeit the prize" into any communications.

That's the first 2 quiz questions sorted:

 

1. What's in the box?

2. How do we get the box off the lorry?
