So Waddington next week any one going to the WAVE/PAVE or airshow?

I shall be there I suspect Friday Sat & Sunday and depending what is scheduled to arrive. Monday - Wednesday I may put in an appearance. I understand the Olympic Torch is due past on Wednesday so may have to give that a miss unless anything good is due in.

Is that Barn Farm? - It's exactly what I would do when DT is no longer involved [he does the FCC] but there's no way he would go camping - grrrr......

Pam. I am not sure what I am doing. I may be at the show on the Saturday, or not. I'll advise.

We have tickets for Sunday, but don't know where I'll be, if we're where we normally get parked then I may just stay around there again like we did last year. Wasn't such a bad view from there, I'm not a big fan of crowds and people so it was nice and quiet :)) .

Will probably be there Friday, and what ever day the Phantom arrives (if it doesn't come on Friday). Rest of the week I might go to Scampton one day, probably Tuesday as we're off to see the torch in Brigg/Wrawby so might stop in on the way.

It is Pam, fair price also. The camping is fun, rain or shine.

Perhaps this is what D.T. needs to get him in to camping!

I might even consider it if I had one of those. Otherwise camping is as attractive as being smacked in the face with a week old Halibut.

I'll be down on Saturday, as will some other members of the Elvington Victor crew. So if you see a bunch of shady looking Yorkshiremen wearing Victor Crew T-shirts come say hi! But be sure your wallet/purse/ipod/phone/anything of remote value is secure first! =))
