JAE Attendance

Post by jeff » 20/08/19 11:56

from over 100 cars some years ago, JAE attendance has plummeted to 9 cars on the stand this year

at £170 for club plot it is hard to justify the cost


just a little poll to try and understand the reasons for the decline
please take a moment to let us know your views

For me, young master Albert being only 15 months old is one of the primary reasons. The politics is ridiculous.
- It's now Norfolk way because it's right next to the organisers home.
- For all his faults, it started to go downhill after Fuggles left
- Nigel has now been forced out too being owed thousands by the new owners/organisers

I think this is one of those shows now where we should look to combine with other clubs of a similar ilk to help bear the cost.

There are other shows that do not cost to book plots which have more going for them.

I am keen to hear feedback on what Nigel's new show (Yakushi Show) is like though fear the date may not help the weather.

Rachel and I do intend on getting back out to the shows next year though unsure how much the little guys will mean we can help with the planning etc.

Didn't realise it cost £170 a plot on top of the already premium entry cost.

I didn't go this year because my car is broken again.

Personally I find I have less time for shows generally. Even the day shows are really a weekend tied up with preparation / travel.

I'm trying to attend as much as I can but cost is putting me off nowadays. I don't earn as much as I used to. Just filling up with petrol makes me wince. Andy
