Hi Richard

 

Good to see so many Gn15 layouts at your event this coming Saturday.

 

Hope it all goes well

 

Terry

 

Thank youTerry,

 

The three Gn15 layouts are quite different so should make a good show for the scale.

 

Are you intending to come along?

 

Cheers

 

Richard

Morning,

 

At present, having spoken to a few members already we are hoping to go ahead with the show on Saturday.

 

We will make a definite decision tomorrow morning as long term weather prospects look like conditions should be improving slightly. Roads have been tricky this morning due to the wind, driffting snow and icy tempertures. 

 

However a lot can change in 36 hours.

 

Will let you know tomorrow morning

 

Best regards 

 

Richard

its with deep regret we have cancelled our show on Saturday.


 


With the difficulties for exhibitors & visitors to get to the show, the uncertain forecast and the halls carpark being snowbound I feel its the only thing we could do.


 


We hope to reschedule the show sometime during the year
