Default Mid Cornwall swapmeet

Hi all, if a few members are interested I am thinking of a open workshop day one Saturday or probably better a Sunday at my work. There is plenty or room inside and also parking space. There are quite a few members down this way and as we are just off the a30 and a39 at St Columb Major TR9 6SF easy to get to. I am thinking of early or mid February. Personally my main interest is Television however, all forms of old junk and its followers will be welcome.

Anyone interested that hasn't dozed off yet please express an interest and collectively we can set a date.

All the best Stuart.

I might be interested Stuart as it’s not that far from me. What would the format be as you mention workshop and swap meet?

Regards

Graham

Hi Graham I have a workshop in my business unit with room for several sets where us lot can pool ideas and get things running. My mate from oldtechnology.net Mike Bennett has an open day each summer so I thought a similar day down our way would be an idea......

Hi Stuart.

This sounds exciting.......late Feb would be better for me, but see what everyone else thinks.

Cheers. Simon.

As the RWB auction is 11 Feb maybe this meetup would be best on either the Sunday 18th or 25th Feb. There has been some interest. Be nice for half a dozen or so of us to chew the cud as they say.....

There doesn't seem too much interest - probably as we are out on a limb a bit down here. If anyone wants to pop along for a few hours Sunday 25th Feb then please let me know also off topic but if anyone is a keen brewer I should be doing an all grain brew up this weekend coming...

Er indoors has promised to bake a cake too if that temps anyone !
