"With the country in the middle of several severe weather warnings, the show was in the balance, fortunately these warning came to nowt J. Once again a splendid turnout of the UKTC “South West Light of Foot” and me J. The show was very busy as always. We also met up with the 1/6th Collectors Club, and reposed some of their action figures for them. Also attending were Gill and Mark of Armortek and Lee Sellars of Newthorpe 1/6th Models, it’s nice to see some 1/6th suppliers getting out their to increase our membership J. We had time to chat with the Yeovilton marketing team, and addressed the possible uplift in passes, and maybe trying out the Swordfish Centre instead of the WWI hall, at the next show. At this show you will be glad to hear I wasn’t busted for driving my tank unescorted, mind you they never caught me, so the club is in good standing as always with the show organisers, so roll on October."
