    You are making a mistake I used to make and confuse people - is the F for FUN or FACTS.

    So now I just use FUN.

    You are the first to show an interest Pickering, we need a Rally Marshal for this show, any volunteers?

    I can't believe we are the only people going to Pickering!:Sad:
    Perhaps it's going to be the "Billy No Mates Club" for us then:Doh:

    York was a busy show with lots of traders and ralliers, Pickering not so, I don't know why. I've never been to Pickering, why is it not as popular?

    One road in and one out, nice little villiage but compared with York not so good.

    If I am not mistaken, last year was the first year. It was preceded with heavy rain and a number of shows including NFL. Ground was a mess and a lot of bad feelings put out. Date has been moved forward, hoping to avoid any bad weather. Plenty of vehicle displays, poor on stall's. Poor layout. Hoping for better things this year.

    were thinking of going to the pickering show, would like to be in that area as sam's never been on the north yorks moors railway, and wants to see aidensfield (goathland) and be taken to a secluded spot on the moors for...erm, :Blush:

    never been to the pickering show, heard it was a big disapointment last year, york was always a good show, but the weather never cooperated, we turned around and went home the year there were queues 10 wide and about 50 long in each to get towed in by the tractors, and once on you stayed put... you were sunk to the axles anyway,

    It really seems that the first and last shows of the season are the best... or used to be, peterborough and used to be the shepton mallet show always had the best selection of traders,
    the ones in the middle were pretty naff unless you were after a new van, stratford is a bit like that, but at least it's a lovely place to be, we go there more for the location than the show as i'm sure a few others do.

    I agree about the fact that York was indeed a great show having attended every show from the beginning, however everybody had a downer on Pickering right from the start.
    I attended last year and agree that the ground was in poor shape but overall I didn't think it was a bad show.
    It sounds like the FUN club will be attending according to "Gonewiththewind" but maybe in small numbers!

    I read on another thread here that MHF were looking for a marshall for Pickering.

    I am hoping to be finished school for the summer by then so I may be able to 'Be There' to 'Meet and Greet'.

    We were booked for Pickering last year but didn't go at the last meeting after hearing about the ground.

    Haven't booked yet, but it is part of the overall plan.
