Sorry to hear that frank. I won’t be there either but hopefully will make the sale in October.

According to the long range guesscast, 3rd October, Newbury day, is going to be wet and breezy.
I'll wait and see.

The club will be there and it should be a big event because the organisers is running out of space,
He phoned me to check if we are going

The weather's in one of its "I don't know" phases this morning.
I can't go anyway. I haven't refuelled and although there is probably enough to do the 50 mile round trip I don't want to risk it.

Now the sun's out in a clear blue sky although it's a bit breezy so I wonder what the wind is like at Newbury as it's wide open ground.
I don't do social media, wouldn't know how to anyway.

According to a report on the Series 2 forum there weren't so many traders or buyers around this time.
2 short but heavy showers here while I was in the pub.

It was quite soon after the July sale, which was probably very well attended. The weather guess probably put quite a few off.

Roll on the April sale... Very Happy Very Happy
