    Default IPMS Thornbury Show - 5th August 2018

    A date for your diaries - the IPMS show is on Sunday 5th August this year (looks like a week earlier than usual). I'm expecting to get an invitation for the Aerodrome as usual in a few weeks. WGF is a perennial favourite, just wondering if we want to do Sails as well this time?

    Hi Dave,
    If I am about certainly more than happy to partake, also willing to put on a sails if deemed viable.
    If not Ill fly a Roland Dv

    Whilst I know it got a Luke warm reception around these parts, and assuming the Kickstarter delivers on time, I’d happily bring Tripods to Thornbury if we fancied doing something a little different.

    - Neil.

    The official invite has been received. I will ask for 2 tables and tentatively have one for WGF/Tripods and one for Sails

    Chaps, we are now a month away from the IPMS show and we have three participants and two games to cover. If anyone else would like to join in (and make the event viable) then please let me know here ASAP. We have six free tickets, and if previous years are anything to go by we can stretch that a bit too.

    Count me in for Sails Dave

    Stuart Machin has just volunteered to join us, so thats 3 definite. Neil, are you coming along?

    Looks like we have 2 free spaces up for grabs

    I'm in David, if I can. Our daughter is due to produce another grandchild for us in early to mid August. Providing there is no action in that department I'll be there on the 5th

    Yep, I’m intending to be there. AWI have been "persuaded" to put on a game, but as I committed to the 'drome first, you have my attendance unless we get a late flood of volunteers and I’m not needed.

    - Neil.

    LOL, I saw the email they got, it was just asking if they'd like to run one. But the way it was talked about made it sound like it said the IPMS were going to send "the boys round" if they didn't

    Are you doing anything different this year?

    Not this year

  13. #13


    I might be available, but since I'm firmly of the

    NO SAILS persuasion, and also of the

    NO TRIPODS persuasion,

    there's no point in my coming if our two tables are Sails and Tripods..................

  14. #14


    Mmmmmmm Sails and Tripods - now there's an idea - combining Nelson and Villeneuve on the high seas

  15. #15


    Tripods isn't out so you will be perfectly safe

  16. #16


    If we only want to do Wings then not an issue for me, last sails outing saw one game.
    Just let me know what to bring ships or aircraft

  17. #17


    Chaps, the show starts at 0930, doors open 0700 but I'm aiming to be there about 0830. Suggest we stick to Wings - WW1

  18. #18


    Will aim to be there about the same trime. Do you need me to bring anything?

    - Neil.

  19. #19


    Still looking good for Sunday. Do you want me to bring anything along David, or is it all covered? Shall try to be there for 8.30.

  20. #20


    Chris, Tim (if coming) - cn you bring mats and a goodly selection of models?

    i will have backups.

    But if anyone else wants to bring anything then the more the merrier

    Sorry guys, having said all was good, it went a bit wonky today. Daughter was taken in for a scan this afternoon and the result is - they will induce her on Sunday. Looks ok but the hospital want to avoid possible complications. So I'm afraid I shall not be making it to Thornbury this year.
    Hope it all goes well for you. See you at the next one instead.
    Chau for now,

  22. #22


    No worries, hope it all goes OK for you

  23. #23

  24. #24


    I hope that your daughter will be o.k. and that you will soon be a proud grandfather, Mike.

    Best wishes to everyone at Thornbury for an enjoyable and successful day tomorrow.
