Hey Bob, not putting Bristol in the title made me have to think a bit to find this thread. face 5

Rain is on the way. I'm coming on Friday in my little car so please arrange the car park so that cars fan out immediately in all directions from the entrance. Not all going down one path that quickly turns to mud. Lat year I actually needed difflock though admittedly I had the heavy trailer behind.

Just an idea but forum visitors could perhaps gather around the BSMEE stand at 2pm each day to meet? I'll probably forget now.

I'll be there on Sunday. I believe usual convention is for participants to carry a red rose so as to be easily recognised on a blind date. In our case this would be rather naff and possibly lead onlookers to form some embarrassingly incorrect conclusions! I shall therefore substitute the red rose for a more manly selection of show purchased bar stock in an attempt to attract fellow forum members into deep and meaningful conversation!!

Looking forward to another great Bristol show!

Regards, Martin.

Friday: I had already lugged my several heavy bars of manly steel to the far end of the car park by the meeting time.
Met up with Coalburner at 2pm and had a nice chat. One problem is we couldn't tell if anyine else was a forum member hanging around or just looking at the exhibits. The BSMEE stand is rather large and in several sections. I suggest standing by the small lathe around the allotted time rather than being distracted by the superb 4 in Burrell as I was.

Met up with Bob too later on for a chat and a wlecome offer of a seat for a few minutes before getting back to the action. Spent all my cash and some more so the traders should be dining out tonight.
Camera packed up after two shots so no pictures this year.

Is girly steel lighter and easier to carry?

Went past Bristol twice yesterday - once ina campervan, on the train coming back. Sadly not a jot of a chance of stopping off

Perhaps there can be a meetup at MMEX?
