I'm sure with a bit of planning we can get enough to feed ourselves. Perhaps have a food kitty? I'm hopeless at food though so probably best if someone else deals with that aspect. Unless you're all happy to eat nothing but mini sausage rolls and Hula Hoops?

That's cool, though proving what a food numpty I am, I don't like flapjack... There will be cake on the Saturday as well of course!

I'm sure we'll work something out!

The food was fantastic the last time i went to the NEC, and cheap, but then it was the Good Food Show . . .

How easy is it to get off site and back on? I guess someone could do a 'chippy' run, or failing that will Dominoes (or similar) deliver?

Simple ham sandwich (no salad or anything with taste - mayo, mustard etc!) would suffice. Thanks Mark.

Vanny says we can have the parasol if we collect it from his good lady, plus we would need a base to put it in (anyone)? and maybe a table for it to sit in the middle of.

Checklist for me is:

2 x 3m x 1m Free standing Banner holders

3 Laminated BX Posters, 2 large, 1 small

2 BX Posters from the Citromania Magazine

1 x Large Mk1 BX Launch Model

1 x BX Sport and 1 x BX GTi Model by "Otto"

Laminated and printed Brochures in colour and B/W (thanks Sandre)

Double Sided tape to stick stuff on with!

5 x A4 Sized "sleeping salesman" with which to hold spec sheets/vehicle write ups that affix to the windows

"30th Anniversary" banner from the ICCCR

1 x 1985 Citroen BX 19DTR!

2 x Grey Zenith BX Front Seats (valeted) ready to be affixed to Mike Sims' bases.

Lots of cleaning stuff

Anything I forgot?

Looks good to me. I'm bringing camping table and chairs (which will be leaving with me on Saturday evening), tickets (I'd better not forget those!) and myself. BX 30th T-shirt will be getting an outing for 2 days.
