AFAIK the UK SIG has a stand there anyway.

I'll be there for sure as my 'local' club, CPAC, is going too.

Yeap. We have a stand there. With plenty of space.

I will be there as  usual.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Sadly, no.  Too far and no transport.

great, guess I won't be billy no mates.

Thought I'd ask as there's no mention of it anywhere I could see and not being a team player (ipms member) I don't see club updates.

It's possible that I MIGHT be able to manage this date.  Exactly where is it, please?

Thornbury Leisure Centre
 Alveston Hill
 Thornbury
 South Gloucestershire
 BS35 3JB
 Jct16 M4 and follow the Thornbury signs

Alternatively, from the north, where I suspect you may be coming from, M5 Jct 14, turn west for the A38 and follow the Thornbury signs.

M4 Jct 16 is west Swindon...........

Won't be making it unfortunately. If held on a Saturday it might be feasible but Sunday's are just to awkward and expensive. 2 nights hotel basically.

Have fun

I may fly in via dragon..... :wacko:

Only downside of that is that dragon stabling in the Bristol/Gloucester area is difficult to find  now that the dragon hatcheries at Berkeley and Hinkley Point have closed.  Might I suggest that coming in by magic carpet would be easier.  It's cheaper to roll up and carry off a length of Axminster (or even silken Isfahan) than park a dragon..........but the chance of having available  a fire-breathing creature to whom we might feed JMNs has some  attractions.
