    Hi all

    Have any of you attended this show? This year's version, Saturday 30 October, actually fits in on my calendar so I'm thinking of heading on down.

    Recommendations for accommodations also sought...

    Cheers, Joe

    Hello Joe, went there couple years ago and it was fun.

    It is a relatively small show but interesting engines to see.

    Ambience is very very friendly and there is a lot of room to move around the show.

    There is also the museum to be seen, small but interesting to see one of the first machine factory with some still working machines and nice miniature displays.

    Will present a few models this year!

    Hi Denis

    Thanks for that, failing any last minute disasters or snow storms, the Mrs and I will be there. I'll keep an eye out for you!
    The museum is definitly on the to-do list as well.

    Cheers, Joe

    Well,

    Back from the expedition south to Vermont. Well worth the trip, a small but very friendly crowd,
    some outstanding models, and of course, didn't have the danged camera.....

    Got to speak with Denis and look over his table full of sterlings, some really nice stuff: Denis you should
    post a few photos, everybody here would enjoy seeing them.

    Bigal: If you were there, I saw you, but didn't recognize you :big:

    Also got to see a RUNNING Snow Tandem, some incentive to work out the last few hitches on mine.... stickpoke

    All in all, I would recommend this one to anybody.

    Joe
