TH06AUG15 – 0700: THE APPLICATION PHASE IS CLOSED – THE SHOW IS FULL – JUDGES

TH06AUG15 – 0700:  Good morning, all.  THE SHOW IS FULL.  I had repeated requests to ‘squeeze us in’ yesterday!!  With sincere regret….THAT’S NOT POSSIBLE – we have a limit of vehicles that can be in the Show display lanes.  We have enough applications on the Reserve List to create a second Show!!!  We’re learning!!  We actually reached that limit for the first time in mid-June.  We’ll review this event very thoroughly from 09AUG15.  We’ll set up the 2016 application process straight away…apply early for 2016…DON’T LEAVE IT ‘TO THE LAST MINUTE’!!!  We have plans for the future and will share them once they have been ‘finely tuned’.  You will be involved in these decisions because THIS IS YOUR SHOW…WE COULDN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOU…THANKYOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.  Because we are a very small team, and we now have to prepare the site, we cannot sit for hours responding to late entries…THE APPLICATION PROCESS IS NOW CLOSED.  If you make contact from now, you’ll be placed on the RESERVE LIST.  This means that we cannot ‘fit you in’.  Come to the 2015 Show, by all means, make contact with us, and assess what you see.  Tell us straight after the event, please!!  If the weather is like it is now, WE’RE GOING TO HAVE A REAL ‘CRACKER’!!  We look forward to seeing you on Saturday morning.  Gates open at 0800…try to be in place by 1000, please.  ATB….The CinC!!!  One of the big things tomorrow will be to set up The Real Ale Marquee…..THANKS TO MARK AND ALEX AT MERSEA ISLAND VINEYARD AND BREWERY FOR YOUR IMMENSE INPUT INTO THIS PROJECT.  THANKS ALSO TO PAUL BUTTON AND HIS TEAMS FROM MERSEA OUTDOORS FOR YOU SUPPORT WITH THE MARQUEE!!  ATB John G.
