    Very tempting but it's a 2 1/2 hour each way trip for me.
    No roof but no worse than Stoneleigh.
    We have people in the B&B too on Saturday so I wouldn't be able to get there too early.

    I intend getting there bewteen 10.30 and 11am. Only 30 mins from my house luckily.

    Watch the fun police with speed camera's. They know this is on, and can be seen tax collecting on the A303.

    Simples.

    Gentlemen,
    Caroline from Haynes has requested in the blurb (very nicely I should add) that if possible please could we be on site by 10:00 (guess that scuppers your plans for Haynes then Kev!?! - but if you do Tetbury instead it might be worth giving Phil W a call as he's going to that one.)
    For those with breakfast vouchers, bacon rolls and tea/coffee are being served between 9:00 & 10:30.

    On arrival you will get a welcome pack containing details for the day. If it's anything like last year's programme then expect something like this:

    08:30 Arrival on site of Exhibitors and bacon rolls being served in Museum Cafe until 10:30
    10:30 Drivers Briefing
    11:00 Start of Judging of various competitions.
    12:30 Judging finishes. All Judging sheets to be returned to Caroline at the Show Office please.
    14:00 Start of ‘Caroline’s Cream Tea Run ’. Long route
    14:15 Start of the ‘Camelot Cream Tea Run’ - short route.
    15:00 Parade of ‘Rare Breed Vehicles’.
    16:00 Prize giving by John Haynes OBE.,
    16:30 Cream Teas served in the Museum Cafe.


    There are definitely still two runs this year as well, one that'll take about 20 minutes and one about 90 minutes: Your choice as to what you do.
    I am of a mind to leave after the parade and grab a cream tea at Bruton, then shoot on home as I have a gig to get to at the Woolley Festival (inc. Ginger Baker, Courtney Pine & Jesus Jones...whooop whooop).

    Hope all of that helps and Andy, if you want to travel down in convoy then that's fine by me, though I'm planning to leave BOA at around 08:30. Call me and let me know if you like.
    Mark, I presume I'll see you there.

    Cheers guys.
    Robin.

    Yes Robin, unless you fancy driving to Shepton and meeting me and Tony Searle and a Robin Hood to travel down. I think there a few garages you can fill up with fuel on the way. lol.

    Ah Hah! it looks like I'll be able to make it after all.
    The wife's looking after the B&B so me and my eldest will be coming down.
    Hopefully get there for 10.00 but maybe a little after.

    A good day out indeed, I hope I didn't make too much noise as I left?
    Great to meet up with those that were there.

    I think you know the answer to that already Mr Davies.
    Poor Mr Haynes needed treatment at the Classic Ambulance afterwards!!!

    Indeed. Sorry we didn't have more time to chat.

    Overall though what a stunning deal: Free entry to car and driver, inc. free entry to museum. What's not to like about that?

    I was impressed with the facelifted facilities. There were some great cars to be seen on the day, both inside as well as outside.
    The 'Le Mans' Delahaye driven by Rob Walker's son was worth a looksie as well.
    Also loved that invalid carriage - no not yours Mark - the one by Hardings of Bath. Actually wondered if it was an early AC to begin with!

    And the whole day had that same relaxed feel to it that Castle Combe had back in July. Luvverly.
    Robin.
