Default Re: Golborne (Manchester) meet Sun 7th November

Thanks for clarifying Greg.

I have since spoken to Mark by telephone to confirm the postal address for stall booking.

I am to have a stall at Golborne, with a wide range of (mostly transistor) Roberts radios, something to suit all tastes, and to suit every pocket. I have built up an extensive collection of them during the previous lockdowns, and having worked tirelessly to present them at their best, now badly need the space. So I am looking forward to finding them new homes at Golborne, meeting old and new friends, and sharing my knowledge, love, and passion for the Roberts brand.

The plan is to come home with less than I go with, however, we all know how that plan usually pans out...

Sadly, I shan't make it as we're on holiday that week. Golborne is certainly well worth a trip!

I was hopeful to get back North on 8/10/21 but there was a medical crisis down South and it's now unlikely I can get to Golborne Fear not Richard FM, you shall go to the Ramsbottom Ball one day and sample the local ale once again Failing that, my brother and I will turn up in Stockport.

Re your question about an auction [Young Man Richard 2] there was an issue with dealers turning up at BVWS auctions in the South, a very long time ago which upset some people. Golborne doesn't have that history and is a very welcoming event complete with bacon butties. Nobody genuine ever gets turned away. You might be encouraged to join but you won't need a Visa to get in
I used to go to Chas Miller events in Shropshire [look it up]. You're not far from Warrington and will be welcomed !

Bexhill but the only Ramsbottom member!

Really looking to this again. I missed the last two due to clashes with other engagements.

I have two questions if I may.

1) Will the capacitor sets/packs from BVWS be available from any Golborne stall?
2) Will the Mrs be able to attend as she has decided to have a look at what the events are like?

Adrian,

YES to both of your questions.

I will be manning the BVWS stall and selling the goodies so bring lots of cash for me to extract...

Money I will bring, but not planning any major purchases. I am a bit's man, bit of this and that could provide parts and ideas for the home builds.

Him Adrian, the bacon butties are also pretty good.
It might help if you have a name badge to get yourself identified

I'm to have a table at Golborne 7th Nov, with more Roberts radios than most people will have ever seen in any one place at any time before...

One minor note about tickets, I sent off my payment for Golborne with an SAE as per the booking form instructions, but apparently tickets aren't sent out anymore, just confirmed 'on the day'.

If this is the case (just for Golborne?) can the booking form be amended? (so I don't have to make a special trip out for a licky sticky stamp?...)

Looking forward to both events, (RWB December) it'll be great to catch up with everyone again.

Only 24 hours to go! Just wanted to appeal to everyone going to wear a badge, whether it's your avatar or just your name, as it makes it easier to say "Hi, and thanks for the help").

Unfortunately I am unable to attend tomorrow, I was really looking forward to meeting everyone again. I hope everyone has a great day and try to empty all the tables.
