Gona give it a miss this year... bit disappointed last year, overpriced and a bit of a car boot sale really.

I think they are all the same really hence why I normally just go to the Midland now. I think it's more of a working mans show than 'The Game Fair' and others with terriers and lurchers rather than hot tubs and summer houses, providing you can dodge the gypos!

Crap

Haha! Me and my old man came to the conclusion whilst driving home that going every year is not necessary! You know you've been too many times when you don't need the site map and unless you want a Realtree jacket (which I think 90% of stands were selling) perhaps going every 3 years is enough...
