Hey troops

Who's coming to Raf Cosford on 14th April?

We usually have a good muster of members and models.

Here's hoping we can do the same again

Hi Paul, I'm afraid I can't make it this year, I have three shows in April and I'm working all three. I've managed to book a day off so I can do one day of the two at Chatham (share the show with steampunk girls ) and also booked off a day for MK but Cosford is a no go.

Barry.

We are booked into Cosford, but only the standard two tables - i got the application form a touch late to arrange getting a cheque sorted for any extras tables.

We are in the same spot as last year - under the port wing of the TSR 2.

I will specifically ask to be located elsewhere next year, just for a change of scenery.

Looking forward to seeing you all there.

Well we certainly wont be able to attend now. Was hoping we would be able to make it this year but clearly not meant to be again.

Just had to pay to have my gorgeous car transported to Leeds and pay for a whole new front end including lights, radiator etc as Allen managed to pretty much demolished her front end pulling out my work car park on the 26th. Another foot or more crumpling/impact and he would have totalled the engine thank goodness for the large crumple zone from bumper to engine the rx's have. So we are broke for the next few months (having to repay bank of mum and dad as insurance just wanted to write her off and I couldn't do it not when the rx-8 specialist we take her to said she could be fixed. Allen is now banned from driving her and sentenced to washing/polishing her weekly.
Allen was fine after the impact well maybe not after me laying into him there was a fair bit of swearing in the heat of the moment.

Woops ouch ooooh-ow.

Sorry to hear the bad news.

I hope Allen's injuries are not too severe Sam, even if it' just sore ears !


You will both be missed
