Kitch in practical classics

Post by Gary »

Just received the latest Practical classics magazine and to my surprise there is an article on the BX written by our very own Kitch.

Indeed. Best to persuade them to take an item from someone who knows. Less chance of inaccuracy. Hopefully its edited OK, can get badly chopped. Also a feather in the cap of achievements.

make sure you get the right one, I imagine Gary subscribes like I do which means you get the next moths early whilst the outgoing mag is still available.

I think you may find another BXer has squeezed into that issue, though I confess I was forced to 'upgrade' to an XM. ;)

Not yet on sale in the shops - subscriber copies have gone out.

I can only afford one magazine subscription per year, so I'm afraid National Geographic takes priority over Practical Classics. How long will us mortal non subscribers have to wait until we can get our collective grubby paws on a copy?

They do like their French tin on PC. I keep trying to persuade Keith Moody to get a BX.

It would be good if you succeed as I think the BX needs more exposure to show what all of us on here already know , what a great practical classic it is.

Doh! I've bought a copy today as I was taking Lana to a horse event (needed something to keep me occupied) and I've got the earlier issue. Not a bad read though.
