Is vehicle entry / exit allowed on site after show opens? May be able come down for a few hours.

i don't think it will be allowed after the show has opened

we will have tickets for entry

your best bet if coming during the day is ring myself (saturday) or diane (sunday) on arrival

Ok, expect parking will be an issue so if I can get down for a couple of hours I'll bring the bike and let you know. Will know Friday.

I'm going across in Phil Raffell's Shogun - I'm meeting Ken at 0830 Sunday only so I dare say I can pop across and spend some time o  the RNE stand. And of course put the marquee down on Sunday. Oh amd Steph Rudd is coming along with it being her kind of event lol.

Cheers

So is this an event where you'll be staying overnight with caravans like at Harrogate, or is it just going for each individual day? Just trying to work out which / when / if we can make it. Thanks.


Title: Re: South Tyne Traction Engine Society Event - urgent, please read
Post by: SpeedQueen on 05, June, 2013, 11:22:26 PM
You can stay overnight but as far as I am aware nobody is Mark. I will be staying near by at Mams caravan so I can attend Sunday 9as long as the hangover aint too bad!!)

Thanks for the reply Diane, we were hoping to get the caravan out somewhere this weekend, as never managed it in ages yet. So will play it by ear, if we don't go anywhere with the caravan, we'll probably come for the day (probably Saturday when Wendy finishes work - 10 ish). Cheers.

I had originally stated I could attend this event (whole weekend) however Rehab still has no MOT and I'm strugling to get it in for a test before Friday, looks like I'm immobile so unable to attend the event.

thanks for all the offers of help , fingers crossed we should have 2 good days at this event  ;D


Title: Re: South Tyne Traction Engine Society Event - urgent, please read
Post by: HD462 on 06, June, 2013, 09:57:02 PM
We've decided not to use the caravan this weekend, as friends are free to meet up on Saturday who we haven't seen for a while. So we'll come to Corbridge for the day on Sunday. :)

Hope all goes well, I'm sure it will, as you seem to have things in hand despite it needing to be arranged at the last minute.
The weather forecast looks very good.
Sorry!!  I can't be there.  :(

Just got out of hospital after a stay in for a while to find that the tickets have now arrived.  I know its short notice but I am prepared to drop them off at anywhere convenient with whoever you request if it makes it easier for you all.

too late Jay its all in hand

you may be asked to explain on monday night as to why this has happened so i would save your explanation till the membership asks and before you do answer to the membership you might want to remember that the membership has noted youve been online on fb so know you havent been without internet access to deal with this event

I don't know how long its going to take from here so I will set off about 8.30-8,45 am  :o

I know its approximately an hour but I would rather be early.

I will bring a small picnic Diane but no hangover cures I am afraid, maybe some "party pop".

Yes this is correct I might of had internet access and been on Facebook but the problem being is the tickets didnt get delivered to my Facebook account and they didn't get delivered to my hospital bed either Phil so sorry for offering to try and get the extra tickets to the members who can all of a sudden manage to make it to the show and they dont occur any out of pocket expenses.


Title: Re: South Tyne Traction Engine Society Event - urgent, please read

Jude straight up the A68 from where you are through Riding Mill ( smile for the camera) to Corbridge

really? i never considered they wouldnt be delivered via fb

i am answering this on the forum as despite me saying you may be asked to explain yourself on monday you have decided to point out the obvious here, like that accounts for this whole fiasco

its not about the tickets jay , its about communication , something lacking from you in the arrangements for this event almost right from the start

to say this has been a farce would be to make this sound amusing rather than the annoying embarrassment it has become !

it says something for the membership of this organisation that they have pulled together at such short notice to avoid your inability to communicate via the forum from affecting future stands at this show

personally, and this is my own personal view, i fail to see how you can possibly even begin to excuse your catastrophic attempt to arrange a simple stand at a show, however i eagerly await you excuses

Having read this all the way through I think everyone needs to stop posting and snipping now and let the membership decide how to deal with this situation
Any posts from now on should be about the show and any arrangements needed to meet up

A haa, Nope, I live in a little village near Houghton le Spring.




Title: Re: South Tyne Traction Engine Society Event - urgent, please read
Post by: HD462 on 07, June, 2013, 08:25:52 PM
Probably the same way as me Jude, I think I'm going to head over to the A1 for quickness and off the A69. Ant you can give me a shout on the CB on Sunday if you're passing the other way on the A1 on the way to Sheffield and want to test it. Just let me know what channel.

Jay, can I just say, and I can only speak personally, it's not a case of being able to "suddenly manage to make it". Back in March when you first posted was too far in the future for me to know if I could make it. I work shifts and have to cover holidays/sickness, so don't know that far off what I'm doing. It's only the last week or so I've known I may have been able to go to any of the days.

Dear Sir

Revenge will be sweet. Even sweeter because you do not know when I am going to smack you around the heed.


Incidentally, my world is lovely and sometimes I am so clever that  I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.


Mwaah

a huge thanks to everyone who stepped forward at short notice to help with this event

when we found out a few weeks ago that a stand had been allocated and 4x4RNE would receive tickets for this event myself shaun and diane were determined that we would not let the organisers of the event down, even if it was myself alone on saturday and diane alone on sunday that manned our stand.

as it was we have had a lot of members step forward to help and i hope everyone who has helped has enjoyed the weekend as much as i have

here are a few pics from the weekend, and again thanks to all for a great weekend

Home, sorted and food cooking  :)
Brilliant day,was a bit worried with the weather when we first got there but it got out glorious. 

Had a good look around and then many hands made light work when it came to packing up.

Made a bit of a boo boo on the way home, ended up behind a traction engine but hey ho 10 mph is good for fuel consumption

Yep, great day, and sun finally got out on the afternoon. You should have went the way we did Jude, went the A68, nice scenic run and missed most of the traffic.

I would like to echo Phil's comments. Good weekend for all who attended. I would especially like to thank the fairground for not turning their music up before lunch as I was suffering from dehydration due to way too much Sun and a long walk on Saturday ;)
Well done and thanks to everyone who helped out xxx
