Looking forward to seeing you lot.

Hm, I wonder if I should try trekking north?

I'm not sure if my visa is still valid though.............

Might try to get up for the weekend as I know I'll be off for those dates.  Wish I'd seen this earlier!

Lee, the thread was only started five hours before you said anything.  :rolleyes:

I will be there for both days, should have a few new models to show off too.

Kit, I am sure we can get you an extention or waiver so you can come and enjoy the show.

Sorry won't be able to make it this year a week too early for me to be practical.

Have a great show lads  :mellow:

I'll be up with Tyneside on the Saturday. I might have something new finished.  IF I can find the enthusiasm, that is.

Sadly I'll miss out again as I'm up to my neck in 1:1 railway stuff.  :banghead:

Slight change of plan this year. I'm not going to Perth now. Instead I've decided to walk the 96 miles of the West Highland Way from north Glasgow to Fort William.

This is a trek I've wanted to do for some time now and I feel the time is right for me now. The weather should be cool enough to keep the midges down but not so cold it stops any fun.

Well good luck to you NIck, it is one that I would love to be able to do.
Although I must question your geographical knowledge.
You say it is a slight change of plans, but Perth and Milngavie (pronounced Millguy) (where you start) are at different sides of the country!  :wacko:
Do let us know how you get on, and of course PHOTOS are required.  :rolleyes:
