Welland!!
 
Welland's annual three day-er this weekend guys -anyone going???????
IIRC it's their 50th this year.
Probably going Saturday, as the evening 'entertainment' can be 'interesting' apparently.
Rained off last year and missed it the year before!

That's one I want to go to, not been there yet.
Boconnic last weekend was good as usual.

Let us no what it was like later.

Next one for us is Honiton Hill on the bank holiday Monday just before Dorset on the Tuesday.

Anyone got anything going Dorset this year?.

Not on the Dorset scale Del, but a decent size show and always good. Forecast is good for the weekend so will be carnage - too 'kin hot for my liking ATM, but mustn't complain - we've waited long enough for it!:D:rolleyes:

I'll get to the Dorset show one year!:(

Dorset is defenartly one to go to, this will be my 6th year on the trot,
Still not seen the whole lot yet,
There is a chap from JCB Holts that takes a 3c up there on display, one they restored at the factory for publicity and a little show what the old machines can do.
There's usually a couple of Cat dozers there, and the last couple of years there's been a Scottish made backhoe loader, ( inch green) I think it's called somethink like that.

It's well worth a trip there is so much there , there is always a good turn out of trucks there.

Torbay rally next weekend at Brixham, then Kingsbridge the following weekend,
Torbay rally is always a good one.

Yer, down Plymouth.
Not too far away from the Cornish show,

Most the time it's a right pain being so far down country, never get any machines for sale this far down.

Unfortunately itís the same weekend as the local rally at Bacconic house.
One year I will get there, but not this year.
We will catch up at some point Mr Druid.

Will need to sort out a van to pop up to Druidsville later on, with Rory of coarse.
