Default DDRC car boot

For anyone within striking distance of Luton/J10 M1
Just a reminder that the annual DDRC car boot is on this Sunday at Stockwood Park as usual. No affiliation but it's literally just up the road from me and I always manage to find it an enjoyable rummage usually turning up something of interest.

I have always found this a good radio car boot sale. I should have a table there on Sunday. Been going for very many years. I remember the days when they had a skip and at the end of the day lots of goodies would be found within it!

Another vote for this event from me having been to the very first at the aerodrome 30+ years ago and most years since. All it misses is a bring and buy.

Always an excellent event. I have been attending for decades and have had a stall at the last three or four.

But it looks like I won't be able to get to this year's, so will content myself with wishing everyone a good time!

Always take a brolly (and some rapid-deployment plastic covers if you have a stall) - that should reduce the chances of rain, via the Inverse Sod's Law Effect...

I am hoping to go. Always good for components and test equipment.

Going to skip this one. I already have a house full. Perhaps I should book a table. Hmm.

Just do it!
I never pre-book in case of bad weather.
Turn up with a car-load. Go home with nothing.
Well, almost nothing.

I’ll think about it.

I have a problem getting rid of stuff. I’ll need to have words with that problem

It is the MUST attend show of the year.

I will be there with a small table of the remaining grot I want to be rid of
