Everything's crossed not just fingers. But then I do need the loo  :angel:

No seriously, cheers Nick  :thumbsup:

As for Elstree. I am still in touch with the organisers, so if it's on, so are we.

If Elstree is on then I'll give the London show a miss.

The same date as the Coventry show. That'll cause some discussion. Apparently the organisers just announced it without asking any clubs if they were OK with the dates - put our club secretary's nose out of joint.

That's VERY silly, considering how few shows that may actually happen this year. :(
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

You mean London v Coventry or Elstree v Coventry?

That makes it sound like a Competition. I can just imagine the Commentary .

In a surprise move  Elstree's Captain has approached the referee and proposed that the venue could be improved by increasing the length of it's wings and Elstree's Foreign signing Dizzy has created a wall of models back in defence .

" Just look at his speed Gary , have you ever seen anyone build quite so quickly   "

"The lad sure is fast John , you don't often see such a fast completion rate , and what's this Narses has come up the field and filled a hole . "

"That's first class PSR from the veteran player , it takes patience and hard work to build up to that level of Skill , Gary ."

Wasn't meant to sound like a contest, but a good commentary, mate!  No, just wanted to make a quick post.

London v Coventry

Assuming they go ahead (June may be a tad to early) then I will probably do London simply because Coventry is an awkward trip and would probably involve an overnight stay. But as I said, If they go ahead ?

It's tricky for me. I will probably support the club and go to the London show purely because it is closer and I can have a pint or three before getting the train home.  ;)

Except if there is a Coventry show we'll have a stand there as well..................

I don't think there's been any discussion (yet) about a stand at the London show, Kit (someone put me right on this if I'm wrong), but yes one is currently foreseen for the Elstree show.

I doubt there would be any space at the London show unless several of the traders or another club pulls out.
