London Boat Show 2010

Ok I will start the annual forum- Who is going and when? OR who went today
What is good? What is poor (apart from weather!!)

I plan a run out next week but the weather is a big issue which could greatly affect the number of people travelling

Myself and the smaller Nashers were going this Sunday, but have decided to wait and see if the weather is any better for travelling next Saturday instead.

There is parking in Multi storey car parks close to exhibition and also off site close to airport they run a bus back and forth. Also if early you normally find a tarmac spot on the roundabout parking car park site as you enter road to multi storey, worth also checking the boat show website for full info

If I do the normal "questionaire" you get a free ticket if they are still doing this thing, will offer out if I get one or two.

I drove to Excel for the first time last year, arrived about 10.30am and got one of the last parking places on the top floor of one of the the multi-stories, however I believe there is loads of other parking available.

Looks like next Saturday could be quite a gathering, although I've been reminded since I posted earlier that this terms Rugby matches start next Saturday and probably won't be cancelled. It's Character building as my old master used to tell us.

Nasher.

I'll be there on Wednesday and Saturday for meetings and stuff.

Not sure I'll get much time to look round but there are normally not many RIBS anyway!
