    To the best of my knowledge we won't be trading, only running participation games. That is our normal modus operandi at shows.

    This is correct Neil.
    Thanks.

    Hi Drew, apologies for delay in replying.
    Officially we are not allowed to sell anything at any show we attend, the reason we get free entry is we are demoing the games.
    Traders have to pay for their slots and therefore we would be encroaching onto their business so we cannot sell anything at the table as Wings of Glory Aerodrome, even if no traders are selling our game and aircraft.
    We should also not sell as a private seller as this show has a bring and buy zone and so the club running the show would miss out on their cut.
    However if there is something you are looking for and another member of the forum can help I see no readon why you could not sell outside the lesiure center as a private sale as long as that sale does not then enter the show premises.

    Is there something you were specifically looking for ?

    Default

    Yes I'm in need of some fire and smoke markers for the standard size planes

    Take a look at Red Vectors website or drop Mick a mail with requirements, he may be able to help.
    Otherwise there is Pykrol on ebay, Litko do some or a cheaper alternative, which I use, black and Orange pipe cleaners.
    If you at the Reading show pop along and we can chat about the options.
    I will be on the Sails table but there will be Tim and others on the WW1 table to talk to. We all have our preferences

    Finally recovered from the weekend........................

    Fits and starts on Saturday - very busy first thing, then dead for about 2 hours around lunchtime, then busy again up to the close.

    Many thanks to Steve (Guntruck) who put in considerably more than the hour of support he had previously offered - cheers mate!

    Sunday was, unusually, the busier of the two days, with very little down time on the table.
    Unfortunately, we 'Dromers spent a lot of time getting our butts kicked by the punters, except for one glorious dogfight in which we swept all before us!

    Thanks to Flash and Ajay for providing their usual sterling efforts and good(?) humour!

    The show itself was MUCH busier than I expected. The halls were rammed both days - all the Traders I spoke to said they had had above average sales, and an organiser told me they exceeded last year's total Saturday entry count by 11:00 on Saturday this year! After some quieter-than-usual shows earlier in the year, this was encouraging.

    I hope to be able to find time to post some of my pictures soon.
