is it possible to post brief videos somehow ?...

Afraid not as videos inherently have hackable security risks for the site   :'(

Since my post on the facebook group I have been getting lots of messages - sorry I have not had time to get on here this week due to work commitments - but here is what I know so far and apologies now as its a bit vague.

Royal Manchester Children's Hospital (RMCH) 31st July.
The charity would really like us to do something this year.  However poorly children and any potential increase risk of infections do not make a good mix and it creates all sorts of "risk management" issues that have to be formally reviewed and agreed.  So Angela from the charity is running with this and as soon as we get an update I will let you know.   If you do want to come please just make a note of the date and hopefully we will have updates soon.

VWNW Tatton Park
This sort of caught me out as I really didnt expect it to go ahead.   However they have announced that they are planning to go ahead subject to what ever government guidelines / restrictions that have to be adhered too.   I have spoken to them and it will be a very different show this year.   

Club stands will be restricted in numbers of cars and strict spacing will have to be followed (so more spaces between cars and hence less cars on the stand).  The show area will also have less cars and more spacing.   So they expect lots of people will be disappointed as they may not get into the show with their cars or there may not have enough spaces on club stands.    I must stress that I am just the messenger here and I know this is going to be disappointing for many.

The show will be on Sunday 1st August - so this clashes with Swanage which is disappointing that after a year of restrictions we now have 2 great events on the same weekend.  All entry will be via e-ticket (currently not on sale).   Show cars and club stand cars will all have to purchase an e-ticket online before the event.   No e-ticket no entry.   I am told they will be very strict on this and will make not exceptions.

I have applied for a club stand of the maximum size ie 10 cars.   I immediately requested if we could have more but nothing has been confirmed (even the request for the club stand).   However I am confident that we will get a club stand (10 spaces) as they have asked for the size of the hospital tent and  they have adopted Humphries (the Charity mascot) on quite a lot of their marketing.   This will create a slight challenge for them as they need a plot big enough for the cars / the tent and the official spaces between everything.

So for now I have to work on the basis that we will get 10 slots on the stand (and if we get more that will be a bonus).  Plus as always first come first served when it comes to allocating the slots.    Normally that would have taken place on here but as mentioned this was announced and I had not realised, I posted it on FB earlier this week and since then I have had several conversations with people.  Hence slots have already been allocated to:

1. Myself with Mandy
2. Davyd
3. Andy (Snorkel)
4. Doug - we couldnt do this without Minions!
5. Shaggy and Pam
6. Richard Brook
7. Gary Wilson
8. Mick Stephenson
9. Oojamaflip

So we have 2 spaces left on the stand.   Names on the club stand do not have to register on the VWNW site.  I will get passes sent to my address and will make sure you get them.  You will need to purchase an e-ticket when they go on sale.  If for any reason those booked on the stand find they cant attend please let me know as soon as possible as we will re-allocate the space and we want no "no shows".    VWNW told me they counted all vehicles at the show 2 years ago and have records of all entries for the main show so past "no shows" are unlikely to get a slot this year.   

Once we have the remaining 2 slots booked the only way to get into the show will be to enter online.   This does not guarantee you will get in I must stress.    That is all down to VWNW and the way they will allocate / the space they have etc.  You can book via this link https://archive.aweber.com/vwnw_club/JvCcV/h/Booking_open_for_Tatton_Park_VW.htm?fbclid=IwAR2R9bv4qrCIeMfZsas6GEEcrnuCiiA9JWsBboaX4PaEQJqwhpXagQWLugE

I think we should run a "wait list" once we exceed the 10 slots just incase someone drops out our if by some chance VWNW allocates more spaces on our stand.  So please add to the list of names if you want to attend on the stand and first come first served for the two remaining slots.

Could either of you take a photo to show me how it is meant to fit?

Kind regards.
