Looking forward to it!

I keep saying I should have a stall, but I never get round to sorting stuff out and actually booking a stall! One day……

Apologies if I’ve missed the info but, will their be a table for the bring and buy in support of the museum?

There’s not much left here now to have justified a table but still some goodies in need of re-homing.

I’m pretty certain that the Museum Bring and Buy will be there. No indication from them that it won’t. One of my favourite browsing grounds!

Whilst it is some distance from the event it might be worth those coming from the South East planning their journey as the Highways agency have announced another closure of the M25 in Surrey for the weekend of RetroTechUK.

All of the stall holders tickets and table plans have been posted out today, so depending on the postal service, you should all receive them within the next few days.....

Less than 3 weeks to go until the show...!

I haven't been on the forum for quite sometime but I'm very much looking forward to this event, I will be traveling up the day before so will be nice and local and feeling "fresh" as won't have the long drive up there on the day. See you all there.


Cheers

Luckily for all of our family my dad is 90 next weekend so I won't be at retrotech.
Maybe next year.

Ging

PS don't forget to buy lots of stuff at the BTTT MCR21 table.

I’m looking forward to it too! I have a pile of stuff for the Bring & Buy table, and I wonder if it’s possible to download the listing forms to complete in advance, saving the busy B&B team time and effort on the day?

Does anyone know or can confirm that the B&B is still 10% of the sale at Retrotech?

I’m currently at the High End Hi-Fi Show in Munich and will be attending the launch of a pair of loudspeakers later that weigh 385kg each and cost £400,000 per pair!

It’s all utterly bonkers and magnificent but I’m looking forward to Retrotech as a return to normality on Sunday!

And I’m not going to buy anything. Absolutely nothing. Definitely.

Trolleys are not allowed in after 9am, but you may be able to find staff to help you.

What I did last year was to use my sack truck (which is in the back of my car in case I need it again) to ferry items between my car and the entrance. It is then not far to the B&B (if it's in the same location as last year). Courtney would be welcome to use it for the same.
