Re: 2019 S4 North

I have the pleasure of posting revised Bring and Buy forms this morning. Moving to these new forms would be appreciated, if you have already started work on the older forms posted earlier in the year.

Scalefour North 2018 Retrospective

I have the pleasure of publishing the retrospective for Scalefour North 2018.

My apologies for the long gap after the show before publication. These are especially due to David Brandreth who got the photos to me some time ago!

Re: Scaleforum 2018

In order for us to complete preparations for admitting people to the show with advance tickets, I will take the online ordering option down on Thursday afternoon. The exact timing will depend on my work commitments (somewhat variable these days).

I've also updated the list of traders. My apologies to Cheltenham Model Centre and Phoenix Precision Paints who were omitted from the initial list, entirely down to a mistake on our part.

There is a small icon next to the word ‘contact’ to the left of every posting. Using the one beneath joe’s name will get a suitable message to him.
