UK MEM @ Guildford 2015
« on: April 03, 2015, 03:00:20 PM »
Seeing our American brothers talking about Cabin fever has reminded me that the Guildford show is only 13 weeks away and I haven't done anything about it  :o

The show is the 4th and 5th of July at Stoke Park in Guildford, it is easy to get to from the M25  ;)

If anyone would like to come along and display their engines I would be pleased to see you. If you want you can drop them off on the afternoon of Friday 3rd July I personally will be dropping mine off first thing Saturday. The show opens at 10am but we really need to have the stand together by 9am and that is when they will like to see all the cars off the show ground. Sunday 5pm is time to collect your models.


If you don't want to display then you can always come and say hello  :)

Just to add to what Jo has said, you can't just turn up and display your wares they need to have been pre entered so insurance etc can be sorted and a space allocated. If you contact Jo she will be able to get the required forms sent to you.

I'll be there but may sneak off Saturday afternoon  and not return until later on Sunday.

No doubt leaving home on Sunday just after the race is finished  ::)

That means you will miss the competition between my Titan and the jet engine boys to see whose engine is the loudest  :naughty:

About time you made a silencer for that titan, Oh no hang on a minute there is no time for that as you have to get the R&B running for this years show :mischief:

She's home, she's home   :whoohoo: but that doesn't mean she is allowed out of the house again :hellno: She needs to know how much she is wanted and loved at home before she goes out gallivanting with any fellas again, last time she stole the poor man's heart and it took over a year to get her back again  :-\.

I was thinking of bringing along this years engines: the B&W, the DT, Kiwi and Kitti (I might even borrow Golly  ;)), the Stentor, the Titan and maybe the Centaur.

 ;) and it fits straight on the carb mount I had previously made.

You could always bring an unfinished Traction engine  :mischief:

Or a finished one as it can be lifted into the car on my own. Better start dusting it then.

I hope to also borrow a Mk 1 Kiwi to go with the original Golly so we can provide a technical description and display of all the engines that show the evolution of the Kiwi  :happyreader:

Would anyone else like to join us  :embarassed:

Would love to come and visit the show just for the experience of having attended a model engineering show and also to meet people from MEM.  Unfortunately in that period I suspect I will be up in Scotland.

:( That's a shame, it would have been nice to see you Vince.

Well if you are over here for a few months can you get to Harrogate next month? http://www.theharrogateshow.com/

It will be nice to see you Simon  8)

Any more hands will be welcome the first year I manned the stand for most of the time on my own and it was hard work, very tiring but lots of fun  :whoohoo:

So it seems we only have Jo and Jason's models for the show this year for MEM  :???:

I might see if we can join in with the IC builders group sadly a few of them are no longer with us so they are short of members and as it is only me on the MEM stand for most of the time being co-located with them means they can provide me with time to answer the call of nature (to go and buy things  >:D)
