Wings & Wheels 26-06-11

Postby Wedgy » Mon Jun 06, 2011 6:40 am

Who's going?
http://www.iconicaircraft.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=4415

From reading the CWJ threads, would be best to arrange a place at Wellesbourne and a specific time to meet up and say hello, if only for 2mins.

I'm just starting the thread - I'm not 100% confirmed yet (should be in the next 7 days)

If you want to bring a gazebo, I'll give you an exhibitors space and you can have an all-day drop-in arrangement.

Might get some new members to join us. :ymapplause:

Well spotted - my obviously deliberate mistake :))

Thanks for the very very generous offer Sooty, but it would require manning up - and so far we don't have anyone :(

Shame I'm not there!!! :(

I could have brought a gazebo a few chairs - made a banner! Helen could have made fairy cakes and your mothers brother would be a very fine fellow!! :))

It's arranged.......

Although that does remind me of the story of the F'kawi Tribe, but that's for another time I think!
