You would be best to contact Paul but I am sure we will still be looking for volunteers.

Volunteers (who will need to be paid-up club members) will most definitely be welcome, so I will add Hammond to my list.

Once I have sorted out the ticket allocations for our exhibitors, I will let everybody know here what days we would like help :)

Free show tickets and a discount offer from Rimmer Bros too!

#35 Post by 220 GSi turbo » Mon Oct 30, 2017 10:49 pm

Right, we have a couple of spare tickets for Saturday and Sunday. Club members only, please, but it is not too late to join :)
If you would like one of our tickets, it is on the understanding that you will be willing to spend a couple of hours on the club stand during the day and chat to visitors. We are a friendly bunch and you will be made most welcome.

Please email me using the address on the back cover of the latest 'Viking' magazine.

Also, Rimmer Brothers are offering 15% discount on orders placed before the show, if you collect your purchases from their stand at the show on any of the show days. This is a great deal, because not only are you saving 15% of the usual price of your parts, there will also be no postage and packing cost.
Use the code UK1717D if you are ordering by phone, fax or email. Or use the code UK1717W in the promo code box on the checkout screen if you are ordering through their website.

Free tickets for club helpers all gone!

#36 Post by 220 GSi turbo » Fri Nov 03, 2017 11:01 pm

We now have a band of willing volunteers to help us out so all of the 'free' tickets are gone.

But remember if you still want to visit the show you can take advantage of the discount codes available to club members (please log in to the members' section of the forum for details).

Few more pics from yesterday - Howard and John deep in conversation with show visitors

Our cars are prepared for Remembrance Day - thanks to Howard for arranging this :clapping

Friday is always the quietest of the 3 days but it only started slowing down at about 4.30 - it was then a long haul 'till the show closed at 6.30.

Thanks to Steve, Kevin, Simon, Andy and John for helping on the stand and the members who called in to say hi and chat.

It'll be busy today!
