Sorry I won't see you again tomorrow Helen. I will try to get up to Waddo on Friday for the preview day when I will pay my money , park up and then go outside by the fence as I used to do in the early 90s.

Ian

I am looking forward to meeting you lot tomorrow. Are you still OK Clunes? I'll bring you a Hunter starter cartridge for your collection. There is an interesting story to go with this cartridge - I'll fill you in tomorrow. :-o

BTW Wedgy I need some more cards and especially Car stickers. Sophie, my eldest granddaughter, pinched the last stickers I bought and they now adorn my daughter's car. ;)

BTW#2 bring your sun-cream or a hat!!! Believe me if the sun beats down, as is forecast for tomorrow, there is no place to hide at Wellesbourne Mountford!! :) Unless you can get under the 'Aluminium Overcast' ;)

Which in my opinion is better than getting covered in grass cuttings and much better than getting all over the camera!

Well that depends when they cut it. If it's at the last minute I tend to agree with you. X(

I'm up and ready to start what I am going to dub my "tri-airfield" day:

Keevil (nr Bath) to Wellesbourne to Biggin Hill to Keevil.
Some 350mile round trip.

Looking forward to seeing 655 \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

See you all there :)

Lovely day :D

XPL disappeared for the 1pm meetup, but MOD, Cluny and 10680 made it :)

Everyone else was excused as they were on duty ;)

As it is my 2nd year of membership, my first W&W with free entry .... feeling guilty I soon spent the entrance fee at the MaPS stall.

Little Miss Wedgy took away her 655 keyring for her collection and instructed me to place her new poster on her bedroom wall \:D/

Will post one or two of the few photos I took on someones thread later.
