Coventry & Warwickshire show 2018
« on: June 16, 2018, 12:56:57 am »
Tomorrow (17th June) is the IPMS Coventry & Warwickshire show.
The What if? sig does have two tables booked as normal. This is our"home" show after all.

Although space is limited, (not just because I will have the Ratte on the stand......) all are welcome.
The loaction is the Midland Air Museum, Rowley Road, Coventry, CV3 4FR.
Set up for displays is from 08:00, and the show opens to the public at 10:00. the show ends at 16:00 with the museam it self closeing around 18:00.
Cost of entry to the show is the museums normal entry fee.

I would have posted a lot earlier, but the host club have had a few admin issues. I only got the final conformation that we had space at last nights club meeting!
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

I'm afraid I can't make it this year. Family troubles mean I will be on taxi/hospital-visiting duties tomorrow.

Have fun everyone! :thumbsup:

It'll be the first Coventry Show I've missed in years.  :banghead:

For obvious reasons I can't make it either, but I'm sure you'll all put on the usual magnificent display and I'll be with you all in spirit.

Even if I'm logged in at Imageshack I can't see the pics OGL. I see the main page open, but it's blank apart from mentioning that there are 28 pics in the folder.  :banghead:

Good pis.  Thanks Martin.
