Might go the other way. Joe's probably the most critical person of his own work!

Great event! Do you have to register beforehand for the show and shine, or just turn up on the day? Thanks

No need to register. Just turn up on the day around 9 and we'll get you in. We'll have a bike stand/display option but if you have a favourite stand, feel free to bring your own too.

I'll be there with several bikes & small pile of bike related gear for sale.

Nothing really show worthy though as most of my ye-oldie bikes are a bit mish mashed when it comes to the era specific items.

I have a couple of 3 x 3 gazebos I might take down if anybody would like to share some shade. Or maybe it's a covered car park ? Would anybody be able to fill me in on the area of the swap meet ?

(having said that, i will probably turn up and be blown away by the 15,000-strong crowd)

Hi all - yes, all still going ahead whatever the weather. The bowls club building itself is pretty large, so can fit a lot in there and a lot of the more established set-ups will have marquees. And, fingers crossed, the rain if it comes, is pretty minimal. 9am roll up for private sellers and show n shiners. The carpark is uncovered but fairly big - this Google view gives you an idea (it's behind the green on the right) Aerial view

This is the first one, so estimating numbers, catering, facilities etc has been interesting - thank you everyone who has plugged this event and everyone coming along.
