Will do Anne-Marie. X rally attendance/non attendance is dependant on cash flow and other factors. I'll let you know in good time. Cheers Mark. :-)

If you have got them Mark, let me know and perhaps I can help to deliver the banners down south, as Andrew (TizzyD) and I hope to attend the Bristol Show.
That'd be great thanks 8)

If y'all let me know what days you want to attend, I hope to have a few spare exhibitor passes a day available.

I will be in Longridge near Preston this Saturday morning - and if they could dropped off with me then I could also bring them down south and easily drop them off with Andrew and Tony... But don't want to step onto any toes...

Excellent :)

Image Mike, presume that's a 'yes please' on the brochures? Let me know and I'll bring 'em in April :)

Longridge is a bit far Hilary unfortunately. Cash is low and so is the XM's fuel tank!

Yes please too for the brochures - I'll go through them and see if any of mine are different, so that I can add to them as necessary for future shows.

I'll be going to the X rally, so I will bring the banners along with me. Paul has graciously allowed to sleep in his shed. =D> :D

Good news and bad news on the car front!

I have conformation of Bleriot the early Mk2 17RD, which also has some nice extras fitted (handle guards, talblazer, headlamp guards) :D

Unfortunately it looks like Tom will miss the deadline with the GT :( so I'm on the hunt for another car, preferably either a Mk1 or one of the go-faster models!

Mat - you offered your estate - any chance of it being ready in time? [-o<

I have Timex as backup, but as it was at the NEC, and I still hope to get a stand at the Restoration show later in the year I would rather something else went on the stand.

Sadly I've had to pull out of this show because I'm an incompetent idiot. Managed to double book myself.

I'm still very keen on coming along, no GT though. Working till half 10 Saturday, but the showgrounds only minutes away from work. Also working Sunday (tried to wriggle out of it, but can't), but may be able to leave early (hours are 9-4:30) and spend the afternoon at the show.

Hi Tom, that'd be great.

They only issue tickets on the Friday, so I'll be leaving them at the gate each day if not collected beforehand. I've got various messages to go through, but we should have enough tickets to cover volunteers, and any visiting BX's should get into the Classic parking area outside.

It's almost on my doorstep, so I have little excuse, aside from dealng with slightly larger things than cars, but if the unthinkable happens and I wake up before lunchtime I might pop down for a bit.
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

So then, who's going? The show's this weekend! What cars do we have too?

Maybe something like this.
Saintjamesy89, Tom - Saturday after half 10 (hopefully sunday too) could provide a TXD turbo if cars are short.
