Yes I will be going down late afternoon Friday to set up club stand, taking several machines and a few other bits and pieces. Will be doing a Villiers Mk 25 mag rebuild over the weekend, thanks to prompt service from Villiers Parts I now have all the parts.
Will also be exhibiting 3 Land Rovers, my 101 and 1957 88, and my sons 1951 80.

Oh yes, it was muddy on Saturday and early Sunday, weather cleared up and site was dry by early afternoon. Vehicles were still being towed out on Sunday but at around 7pm I drove my Transit out of the camping field with no bother and quite a light load for me.....
 
Put a caravan or trailer on a front wheel drive car, van or campervan and you'll get stuck on wet grass.....
 
Western stationary engine men seem to have to start packing up to leave by 3pm so quite a number of motorhomes and cars with trailers were towed out.....

It annoys me that the stationary engine men are usually first to leave. The show is open till 5pm they should still have their exhibit out till then. I would have refused to tow any before the show closed at 5pm.

When I was involved in organisation, no attendance fees or plaques were handed out until official close time on Sunday, which certainly kept a lot of people on site!
