Stafford, October 2020

Whilst I haven't had any request from Mortons yet about the Stafford show, they are now advertising it in the press. It may or may not take place anyway, but what are your thoughts about spending a weekend in Stafford showground with all the coughing and sneezing that goes on? I'm happy to give it a miss, at the peril of losing our prime spot, but if there is enough support I'll do it. As I said, no pressure yet, just trying to get a feeling from you guys!

I think the country will be starting (or be in the middle of) a second wave of C-19. But even if not, after my stroke I'm in a high risk group, so will give it a miss.

If Stafford does go ahead and we don't attend (and many other clubs probably won't either) then I think it would be unreasonable if we lost our prime slot and there would very good grounds for an appeal against positive discrimination?

Many if not most show attendees would be in the high risk group I’d say :roll:

I personally dont think it will happen but as others have said I am shielding sandie so wouldn't risk it , speaking to ralph last night dont think he would either nor hutchy .
As TLC says lots of us are in the vulnerable bkt or shielding someone who is , it would be shite if mortons held this against the club

If it's on I'm not sure I'd attend. Far too risky IMHO.

I don’t know but I would imagine a lot of owners clubs membership is in the age bracket that don’t want to risk catching Wuhan flu.

I've still got my room booked but unless there is suddenly a miracle cure i suspect I'll be giving it a miss.

Have a room booked, but can’t see me going - as I am shielding my Missus and my elderly parents.

I'd have thought general consensus is give it a miss this year?
