sounding like we have a big stand? 5 cars?


I think 5 might be a bit cramped, hence the request for a R3 [url]or[/url] HHR

A friend of mine up there might be able to let us have his blue 25 GTi, or I could bring our GTi or Streetwise.
But it would be even nicer if somebody from the 'general membership' could take part :)

Is there anyone going to this show that lives down South?

i.e - they could pick something up from me and bring it a few hours South and I will collect from them (I don't think I'll be able to get to the show)

How big is it? And dirty/messy/sharp edges?

I could get it down to Leicester(ish) and then either take to the Milton Keynes show on 25th Sept or drop it near to you next time we do a family run down to Wilts :)

As dist said it'll fit in a boot. I'm hopefully coming to Milton Keynes so if that's the case I'll pick it up then.

OK, sorted! Having seen your post in FS/W, I think I know what it is now. :)

Two weeks to go, I am just waiting for the passes to arrive from the show organisers.

As soon as they arrive, I will forward them on to Craig, Nick and Paul, plus our 25GTi owner and Howard (who is going to be helping out on the stand over the weekend :)

On their way......... :) (Two entry wristbands per car exhibiting, plus a windscreen pass)

Also a few guidance notes for what to do (and when) on Friday.

Looking forward to the info Paul. Working all day Friday, so aiming to leave home (Wakefield) at 7.00pm ish. Hope that's OK.

I'll be then getting a train back to Leeds and returning to the show on Sunday.
