You'll all think I've got daft, bringing this up so early, but I do have a good reason.

Are any of you aware of any Irish layouts planning to be there? If so, which one(s)? Please.

I ask, as the Warley Club has given me an early opportunity to say where I want to be with the IRRS stand and it's useful to say "near xxxxx Irish layout".

I know Andy Cundick is attending with one of his layouts, but are there others?

Thanks

Leslie

We won't be there Leslie, still getting our breath back after last year!

And I am sure the SDMRC will not have a layout there

As I am sure you are aware, invitations are issued a couple of years in advance so I reckon there are no Irish "Irish" layouts attending

It will be up to our brothers on the mainland methinks.

German layouts you mean? from the continental mainland of Europe? :) :)🤣

Thanks, Dave, we'll have to consider our position in more ways than one!

I'm not surprised that you guys are still recovering from your efforts in 2019, it's hard work. Anyway, I hope to see you at Raheny!

As for Warley, Andy is showing his Welsh layout this year, but plans a Co Donegal layout the following year.

I've just received an e-mail to say Warley in November has been cancelled.

That's ridiculous. The corona restrictions were too little, too late and are now too much, too long.

Vote with your feet Leslie, let Warley die, get your money back.

You ok hun? Good thing your not involved in running shows then

That's ok, I don't want to be your friend, but I was about the only person on here expressing concern about corona 18 months ago, which should tell you something.

Model Railway Shows were getting to be financially risky even prior to COVID. I understand both the 2 large shows here in the North East in 2019 made a loss. Back in the 1980's when I was involved in such ventures, Even allowing for inflation, Venue hire was much lower especially schools etc. Public liability Insurance much cheaper and visiting layouts expenses lower. Plus there were far more clubs so a bigger pool of members layouts etc which would do reciprocal visits etc in exchange and forgo expenses as a result.

What's that got to do with you taking bizarre potshots at Warley?

Do me a favour and delete my account bullyboy, I won't be making the same mistake twice.

WARLEY OFF

 

This won't surprise anyone?

Warley 2020 (like the Olympics and Euros) was running a year late, but is now going to be two years late.

I've just received an e-mail to say Warley in November has been cancelled.

Now, do I leave my deposit in place until 2022?

I'd take your deposit for now Leslie, if you haven't already done so
