Hope everyone has been keeping safe. Not a lot of things happening this year, soo many shows being cancelled. We are not planning to do the end of Season show, Petersfield has been cancelled. Things do appear to be opening up again. Port Solent had a huge gathering last Sunday. We have been invited to put on a small gathering of cars on Thursday evening at Port Solent on August 6th arrive around 6.30pm, to all be parked up by 7pm. Beaulieu have an American day on August 16th, if you wish to attend you need to pre-order tickets from their website. As for club nights, not sure yet when we will start doing them again. Southsea cruises, we shall start doing the first one on August 16th, then we can get 3 in this year, obviously keeping social distance. I’m sure many more shows/gatherings will pop up.

Dan, why is the end of season show not happening?
I don’t understand that decision with pubs now open, gatherings allowed and sensible social distancing. So why can’t it go ahead?
It’s also far enough away still that things will either get better or deteriorate but why not defer the decision?
I’m afraid I don’t understand the decision so can you say why the decision has been reached?

A lot of the people that would be helping are self isolating due to age and health. We could have just ran half capacity and turn loads of people away to try to keep spacing. We are usually all packed in, you cant get into the pub, too many people would have to brush past each other, its just too much to sort out, I know we could call in extras help. Also a lot of shows have been postponed to October. We are going to save our effort until April. Hopefully next year will be unrestricted. Who knows, you can fly on planes these days which is way too soon in my opinion sitting in a steel tube for hours breathing other peoples air.

Kind of see it, but what about a limited number ticket event with pre-entry by booking and my guess is there is plenty of people willing to volunteer to help out. Got two right here....

No, he said there would be a volunteer "in poor England otherwise known as Wales" referring to you :)
