Sorry to hear that John, presumably your stall will be missing as well or will your colleague be still going?

Looking forward to it. Have repurposed a name badge from a previous job so people might know who I am. I have been quizzed by my OH about what I might buy and am hoping I don't get tempted. Ref posts #35 and #36 that was me asking the same question, and the answer is we can. I can see me joining.

I've got some stuff I want to give away rather than bin it, is that a possibility?
Bit late I know
and I'll look for a U404 valve.

Thanks Peter, Steve's wife has broken her hip, so hopefully the table will be re-let.

Ken, I was looking forwards to seeing everyone again, been a long time. Hopefully in the spring also Retro Tech.

This will be only the second one I will have missed since they started at Lowton.

John.

What you can do is put items on the bring & buy, asking for a donation to the BVWTV museum.

Just a thank you to the organisers of the meet, picked up my Pye B18T a collection of caps from the BVWS stall and a scope. Worth the visit.

Seconded. Thanks to everyone who makes this event possible and to all the forum members who came up and introduced themselves, it's nice to put a face to the avatar.

See you all again in April.

I attended for a short time. To be fair I was only looking for one person Ed Dinning, who I met and passed over some valves. I should have taken note of some other names and now I got back remember seeing Kentode and AdrianH. Sorry I didn't say hi but as I say I was looking out for Ed. If anyone saw a bloke looking lost with a small cardboard box that was me.

Thank you to everyone who supported the Bring & Buy, which raised £112.30 for the British Vintage Radio & Television Museum. I think this is a record for the Golborne B&B.

Yes, lets hope some of those are actually viable and raise something.

It was good to see old friends and familiar faces, And thankfully I got Dave home safe, after an hours mini drama broken down on the M6, but alls well etc.
Came home with most of my wallet contents intact, but next time I may be tempted. Thanks to Mike B for the valuable advice on the boxes of ex BBC valves, and a satisfactory outcome there.
