During Saturday went done to Folkestone Racecourse and marked out the 101FCC&R area. It's in the exact same spot as last year.
First impressions: the grass has been cut and is much better condition than last year, they have even cut the normally long grassed area as well, but this, I believe, is create more space for entrants. The ground is firm and dry (ish) but not dry enough to throw up any dust. All the regular people were there, or had been, with about a dozen or so areas marked out. There is a lot more fencing about and a larger booking in area in place. The public camping area looks slightly larger, and no toilet or shower blocks in place.

Looks good, and cannot wait till Saturday or maybe Friday, dependant on work.

Looking forward to meeting all again.

Great work again Brian, thank you for setting all the space up. Looking forward to it now and hope everyone has a safe journey. We're likely to be coming on Monday or Tuesday, just depends if they let people arrive early and set up camp on the Tuesday.

Viv, Michael & Martin

Hi Viv and crew, the show ground was sort of open on Saturday, we have friends who will be there for two or three weeks. So no problem coming down on Monday or Tuesday. Believe "Booking In" will be open from today Thursday 14.07.16 for all entrants but public is from next Wednesday. Still not sure if we are going down Friday or Saturday, still dependant on weather.

Looking forward to seeing you all again.

I hope everyone who went down this weekend made it okay, any report on how it's going yet?. Heard they had a problem with the Naafi shop. =If all things go well we should be down tomorrow afternoon.

Had a great time today at War and Peace. Slight niggle with gate Staff . Had to buy a temporary virtual wristband to get to Kitchener's field to pick up a radiator. To be fair, they did refund my £30 permit fee. ( I had already bought an advance ticket) but a bit unecessary I thought.

Rest of show great with good stuff in arena and lots of traders. Not much 101 stuff around though someone did pick up 4x shock absorbers for £30 ! (Not me ).

A real pleasure meeting 101 members Ron and David from Scotland. That must have been an epic drive.
Bought a radiator from David so well pleased. Had a good look around Ron and Dave's Ambulances.
Very sympathetically done.

One strange thing. There is a101 GS in good nick being driven around the site filled with strings of onions and Frenchmen in berets, striped shirts and outrageous moustaches.

Not sure what that was about but the show overall was good.

Boy was it Hot !

Steve

Had another good year apart from breaking down on the way back and having to wait for recovery for hours. At least we got back safe, we heard another mv towing a trailer had an accident :( . Apparently the problem is the ignition amplifier so i hope that isn't too difficult to fix. Was good to meet everyone again, thank you to Brian for the great work on the pitch as usual.
David wearing that hat :lol: Hopefully everyone got back safely and hope to see you all soon.
