    Yup!
    Even though I'm not on the stand, I'm looking forward to it.
    Good job with the stand guys, nice to see it coming together finally.
    Big shout out to Martin, Sandra and Mark for all the effort they've put in to make this a good show :applaus::yahoo:

    hopefuly the weather will be better, still can't be any worse than at the moment,
    shame I'm working early in't morning or would liked to have been on the stand,
    still looking forward to putting faces to the names and I won't be able to miss the Audi Banners now.

    Take it easy cats.
    See you soon.

    Susan and Erik's money is in and safe. The rest of you - are you taking anyone with you, or do you just need 1 ticket?

    Susan can you get onto your pals at Ingliston and see if we can get a prime spot for the stand. Needs to be kinda large too seeing as the tent is massoove. Dont wanna be out on a limb now do we.....NO!!!

    Sandra/Mark/Adam, does anyone know the actual footprint of the tent? I've seen it with a car coming out of each of the 6 arches... is there room for 2 per bay, or will we have to put a car at each anchor point too?

    I emailed a cpl of boys yesterday and i'm waiting to hear back - the only other thing i suggest is to make the person Martin is dealing with aware of the size and prime position we are looking for

    I suppose once we find out the footprint we will have a better idea of what we're dealing with. :)

    I've had a look at alot of pictures of the tent and I reckon we will get 2 cars per bay if we park them right. Can we pitch up the day before Susan or is it early doors for set-up.

    Hi,

    I did asked the same question as it might be easier if we could, because I have been down there on the day at around 6am and its buzzing with cars trying to get in. I will try and find out.

    Assuming this is the same tent, I think 2 per bay is doable.

    I think we might be able to get into the grounds the day before because the people that get their cars in to the top 50 cars inside can leave their cars there the day before. Giving them time to polish their cars. If I remember correctly from last year.

    But if i were yours i would check that.

    Dunno what to make of that to be honest.

    In some ways, a massive indoor show is quite apealling.......

    But, the SECC is about an extra 80 mile round trip for me, and if it turns out to fall on a scorching hot Sunday, being stuck indoors is the last place I wanna be.

    For most years, the best part of this show has been the outside part.

    Guys

    Looks as if this is whats going to be happening because of the state of the ground in previous years due to bad weather. Inside has its plus points as well as bad. Once we have clarification we will update everybody and take it from there.

    I can see this turning into rat ****e. All indoors so the cars will have to be in place days before and trying to get them out is gonna be a nightmare. Will see what info Marty can get his hands on and then see what happens.

    I'm on it... though info is a bit thin in the ground right now. I'll update you all when I hear what this move means in terms of setting up and timing etc.

    Interactive Maps | SECC

    I,ve been thinking about this and I think it may be easier to get the cars into the show if its being housed over 5 halls.

    I agree it will be a nightmare getting back out, but so is Ingliston, I have been part of the traffic management team at events down there when cars are exiting.
