Guildford Open Day 2021
« on: February 16, 2021, 03:55:59 PM »
This morning, my mailbox contained an invitation to exhibit some engines at the 2021 Guildford Open Day, to be held later this year, 3rd and 4th July

This may not be a return to normal, I guess that is still some way off. It is an attempt to come to terms and to live with the dreaded virus

The 2021 Guildford Open Day will be an outdoor event. Bring your own tent or Gazebo and display your work out in the open air, at a safe distance from the visitors. Tables and an engine running cage can be provided.

This is all subject to any local lock down conditions at the time. Hopefully infection rates will be low and the effects of the vaccination program will be having the desired effects in reducing risk. The low cost DIY format; means that the organisers or the expediters can withdraw, at a moments notice, without financial loss to either party. 

It may not be a return to normal but it sure feels like a glimmer of light at the end of a long dark tunnel

See you there???

Mike

PS Contact Bryan Finch for an entry form

If I attend, social distancing rules will apply in my Gazebo. Get your own :facepalm:

Actually, you can use and you can then keep my old Gazebo. I will be buying a new concertina gazebo

The signs are looking favorable for the Guildford Gala over the weekend 3/4 July. Guildford is in Surrey UK, 28 miles SW of London.

It's a bring your own gazebo and models show. Display tables and an engine running cage are provided by the Guildford Club.

If any of you are free that weekend and want to attend, you are all very welcome.

If anyone wants to bring along their models (and a gazebo) that will be better still. Let me know and I will put you in touch with the Guildford Club's organizer; Bryan Finch.

Cheers

Mike

I have told Bryan that I intend on going on Saturday and bringing along something or other that I have made since the last show  :headscratch:

This is of course dependent on me getting my second jab in time for it to be fully effective  :Director:

Hello Jo,

Do only what your feel comfortable and safe with. Everything is subject to the conditions on the day.

Hi Mike. My Stuart Major  Beam might just be finished by then so perhaps I could show it there?

Yesterday Bryan sent out an update on the show based on the current Covid restrictions. This morning I have confirmed to him that I will be attending on Saturday. We are promised our usual running cage so with a fair IC engine running we should have sufficient air flow/ventilation for the event  :).

I still have not decided what to take  :thinking:

Glad to see things are returning to at least a semi-normal condition over there "across the pond".  We have had a somewhat normal show schedule, at least here in North Carolina.

It's not about the destination, not even so much about the journey,
but rather it's the interesting folks you meet along the way.

We are two days off from the show and I thought I would check in to see who is still going.

I have acquired a second hand Gazebo but would prefer not to have to take it as it is too big to fit in Minx's boot   :facepalm: the weather looks like we may need it  :toilet_claw:

And not to shade you from the sun. :(

I'm going to wait until Saturday morning and decide if I pop in or not.
