Sadly wont be attending, not only my work / Uni commitments; long story short (as poss!)...

-costs are up versus when it was in Harborough Show Ground
-LMF bankrolled the VBOA Rally when Billing gave the VBOA the finger - literally saved the VBOA National Rally
-VBOA then 'arranged' a new deal behind LMF's back for 2019.
-The list of 'what's on' at the new Sywell site rather bizarrely almost all the 'attractions' consist of nothing to do with cars.. family fun day, events, face painting type stuff etc.
-The LMF / Habrough regime offered less 'family' attractions, they hoped it would be more about the cars, the people, autojumble etc. meaning less kids drizzling molten ice cream over very rare precious automobiles. However, it would appear the 'family friendly' regime is returning.
-Autojumble not confirmed as far as I'm aware, I have checked, though I hope it will be on for those who go

I MUST stress...
these reasons have NOTHING to do with the people on this site, nor the people of ABS and the excellent way both are managed. It's literally nothing personal, I just can't justify the money for 'maybe' an autojumble, (last year all the bits I got off the autojumble were actually off Keith ABS, which I didn't actually need to do there and then, couldn't easily popped over to his warehouse of treasure any weekend of the year!  :D)

But again, my bestest wishes to those who go and hope all have a good time. I shall make my annual pilgrimage to the NEC Classic Motor Show and see the ABS stand and anyone else who's about.  :y

However, it would appear the 'family friendly' regime is returning.
We are in an age of millennial parenting, so they can only go if little snot goes and screams and runs riot.

As predicted by yours truly back in the late 80s (where my comments were along the lines of 'these kids will become parents themselves in a few years, then we're oppsed')

this.

I'm not going to make a blanket statement like "my parents were the last generation of good parents" because clearly there are still decent people in the world being born, but at the same time thats not far from the truth, as I was brought up with 'speak when youre spoken to', 'look dont touch', 'eat what you take & take what you eat'; 'respect your elders', 'if you want something you have to earn it'.

Christ, when did I get old? And now people don't respect their elders, so I don't even get any respect!  ;D :D

You forgot, breaking any of those said rules earned a clip round the ear. And if your parents subsequently found out, a bloody good hiding as well.

The stupid naughty step hadn't been invented, and parents knew trying to reason with a child was a waste of time.

 We will be on the airfield.
The fire is in the buisness park adjacent to it
It is fenced off seperatly from the airfield if memory serves from when I did a jumble there a while ago
