How do all, been a long time since posting.

Not sure on JAE this year?

The show has lost some of it's magic to me, it feels like going through the motions for the sake of it at times.

With this years changes and issues, I'm not sold on it?

Always keen for a meet up and a beer with you all, seeing the OC family is great, just not committing to the show yet this year.

I haven't had the car out since last years show and it needs an MOT, I haven't the time before JAE to get it all done and the restriction on non Jap cars really puts me off.

Will see in the next couple of weeks.

Would be great to see you and the family Gaz, Harry and Amelia are constantly asking if you are all going to be there.

AFAIK that only applies to vehicles on club stands.
Seems fair enough to me. Otherwise why call it JAE?

The move from Newark was the last straw for me because I don't do camping.
Accomodation prices in/near Peterborough for the period of JAE are a total rip-off.
Nearly double the normal cost for other times.

I'm off up north instead for a full day with an ADI.
I'm staying with my sister overnight.
The showground is only a few miles off my route.
So if time permits I may drop by the stand to say hello.

I'll bet Dave will still be asleep though. Too many beers the night before... ;) :bleh:

Bless them, I don't know mate? I'm inclined to say probably not, the Mrs may try and change my mind, I don't know.

I get it, of course, but when I bring a Jap car and my wife and kids are in the support car that gets parked and enclosed by tents as well as bringing IKO kit. I think a little leniency wouldn't go a miss. All the crap that we don't want in the tent, but need access too stays in the car, so is essential. No support car, no Gaz.

I get where you're coming from but some folk are a lot more sensible with/sensitive to such things than others. Nor does every club have a marquee the size of ours behind which a support vehicle can be tucked away. Also the organisers allow those in for setting up/tearing down. They just want them off the stand and in the public parking area during the show. Is that such a major imposition? Inconvenient perhaps, but a deal breaker??!!

When I attended JAE at Kettering & Newark I put all my 'crap' in the boot of my car. To be fair though I didn't have any kids and their clutter to contend with.

There are lots of rules that people don't like. In this case, if the participating clubs don't like them its up to their reps to band together to try and persuade the organisers to relax/remove them. Without the clubs there would be no show so a united front would be a powerful negotiating tool.

Can all members attending also remember to bring a chair as there is no furniture hire available this year.

Tallboy has all the equipment along with a sound system, so we have the the marquee to erect on the Thursday if enough people are there.
If not we will have to hit the beers early and await enforcements for the Friday, actually option 2 sounds better.

I doubt I'll be able to get there on Thursday but I'm happy to get in first thing Friday morning and help.
