    Sunday 8th August at Thornbury Leisure Centre , UK BS 35 3JB.

    Short notice but any SHOW proposed deserves support at this time.

    Scale Model and Wargaming Exhibition, well know to many.

    I am not the only addressee .. apologies to Andy if I am too sharp ..at my age?

    For those who managed to get to the Avon Show, I'm sure you will agree it was great to be able to get back into the show groove again. Full marks and many thanks to Andy and his team for an excellent day. It was also good to meet up with some Planeteers and put faces to names, and clock some really nice work on display.

    Shame I had to miss this, I was going to attend but I have to isolate before an operation shortly. Also missing the show this weekend in Stafford. You wait months for the shows to start again then life gets in the way.
