Just to clarify we have always needed members to help get the bikes to Stafford. We hire a trailer or van and also use GB's van to bring all the scaffolding, lights, Tv, carpet tiles, fences and merchandise, as a relatively small club we can't really organise pick ups and drop offs up and down the country as well as building the stand and tearing it down again. For twenty years actually filling a stand has been the least of our worries, disappointing people who wanted to show due to available space has been more of a problem. As Jerry says as a club if this has become an issue we are in serious bother going forward...

If we get bumped to the position under the balcony again then 8 is enough.

Me and a mate are going, but can't find anything on the Showground's website about camping on site - is there any?

No problem Chris, I only offered as Jerry put the shout out. I thought there would be a transport issue but if no easier options came forward the obstacles may have been outweighed by the need.

Jerry,

Both of my current bikes have previously been on the stand, but I can bring the 'Widow Shaker' if you'd like. :sou :sou

This genuine Z1R-TCII would've been offered, but after some further investigation the motor has had to come apart due to a bad engine build by the previous owner!
I know for sure that it'll be available for the show in 2018 though.

Come on guys, PLEASE support Jerry and all the club reps and members (aswell as the public) by offering your bikes for this well established show and awesome club!

Regards, Will

Could possibly bring a Harris if your really stuck, Its easy enough for me to get it there Saturday early doors or late friday 6-7pm but if you need it there Friday afternoon I am afraid I cant get the time off.

I know how difficult it is to get bikes for shows, as there was only about 4 people who volunteered bikes for Donington to support AL and others pulled out at the last minute, so I will help if I can.
Jerry just pm or phone me if its needed.

Thanks Guys, Looks like we can fill the stand after all - I'll consolidate everything over the next few days and post back. Camping is available on the show site, as far as I'm aware it's free, but nearest man to the stand has to turn the lights on every morning!!!!!
