Here is the lineup so far:

Thursday (build): John B, me, Jeremy, Jonathan, Iain (BRM owner), Suzy (416 owner), Nigel, Simon. I haven't had an email reply from John and Kevin N, but I believe they are bringing us an engine!

Friday: John B, Jonathan, Suzy, Nigel, Simon.

Saturday: Jeremy, Jonathan, Suzy, Nigel, Simon, John R (ex-owner of our charity Cabby), Kevin M, Duncan, Jesus (our volunteer valeter)

Sunday: Jeremy, me, Suzy, Jonathan, Nigel, Suzy, Simon, Duncan, John + Kevin N.


Car display passes are going out by email, show entry wristbands for all days will be given out to everybody present on Thursday. Anybody not coming on Thursday will have the option of collecting their wristbands from one of our team on the day (in the NEC atrium) or having them posted in advance.

If anybody else would still like to join us on any of the days (as long as they are a club member), please get in touch.

Absolutely any time you can get there :wink3

Show opens at 10 on Friday, we can get in an hour before that. But even if you couldn't get there until 11 or 12, you would still be welcome! As well as the free entry wristband, we also have some free car parking passes. (Or if you were travelling down by train, Birmingham International station is only a short walk from the exhibition halls)

Simon B and family are in a hotel somewhere local and Suzy has a caravan pitch at Warwick Racecourse and there's a rota to bring her to the show each day.

Just to confirm Suzy is staying at Harbury Fields caravan site. Warwick Racecourse site is fully booked, presumably because there is an event on that weekend.
