2019 Solihull TV Junk-Swap and Get-Together
 
2019 Solihull TV Junk-Swap and Get-Together - Saturday May 11th 2019 - Solihull B93.

Hi all.

I guess it's a bit early but I thought I would post here the details of the 2019 Solihull TV Junk-Swap and Get-Together in case anyone fancies coming along on Saturday the 11th of May (the day before the NVCF).

The format is pretty much the same as the last umpteen years: Turn up whenever you like (within reason and preferably after 08:00 in the morning) :) and enjoy fresh bacon sandwiches, coffee, tea, beer (if you're into daytime drinking), squash, biscuits, cakes etc. or whatever else you fancy from the fridge. Bring with you some TV related junk for the lounge and take away somebody else's TV related junk. In fact it doesn't even have to be strictly TV-related junk - old PCBs, books, magazines, components, TVs, Radios, VCRs, electrical junk etc. are all good. Anything really - other than perhaps the contents of your compost bin. Biscuits, cakes, pasties, tea, milk etc. are all welcome too if you have any spare for people to share during the day. If you have bits and pieces to sell then please do bring those too - but do put a price ticket on them so people don't just wander off with them.

There will be TV fixing in the dining room and workshop, loafing and chatting in the lounge and general merriment throughout the rest of the house. Lunch will be at about 13:30-14:00 at the usual place (The Drum and Monkey on Four Ashes Road, Dorridge) and evening takeaways are always popular too. Beer will be on tap for the evening session and there are a number of spare floors for people to stop-over if they wish (I'm afraid all the spare beds / sofas have been already spoken for). There are a number of establishments nearby if people want to stop over in more comfort until the next day before heading on down to the NVCF at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre at Radford Smelley (near Leamington) a few junctions down the M40.

As always - Please do wear a name-badge with your real name and forum name on so everyone can recognise one another without those awkward moments where you recognise someone but are too embarrassed to ask their name. :)

If you fancy coming then it would be most helpful if you could put a post below so I can gauge numbers (and send me an email or PM if you don't know the address).

Thanks everyone.

Kind regards.

From Mike.

It sounds interesting but it's a way for me to go, though it's closer than a lot of other events.

I'll think about it & let you know.

Good evening Mike,

I will try and come this year as I missed last years. Having a bit of a tidy up so could possibly bring a boot full of vintage things to give away/swap.

Checking my calendar I see I've already got something on the same day so won't be able to make it.

Hi Mike,

Sounds excellent to me. I'd love to bag some overnight floor space if possible?

Absolutely love this event, especially as we have the NVCF the next day too so count me in!:thumbsup:

I will have a dig about at home to see what junk swap items I have to bring8-)

All the best mate.

Hi Mike,

I probably won't make it unless someone can give me a lift down as I cannot drive till later in the year.
Shame, as Mikey's events were superb and I have been for a few years now.

Mike, I'll PM you.

Thankfully this year it doesn't clash with Eurovision (that's the following Saturday) so I should be able to come. I'll confirm and book somewhere to stay nearer the time.

The one I came to a few years ago was great. Really interesting to see old TVs being bought back to live.

Can you PM me the address please?

Hi Mike.

If my rota doesn't change, then I'll be working on this weekend but will attempt to change my days off if possible.

Cheers Mike,

Tas

Hi Mikey,
I would love to come. However, I would need a room and a lift to the NVCF as per usual.
Cheers
Andy
