There are the usual dodgems on the main fair (owners name escapes me at the moment-sorry) and Glenn Millers paratrooper. Thats it for big rides this year as unfortunately Terry Atha couldnt make it with his waltzer. There is also Billy Smith with his joint and ducks, John Henry Caris and Mr Hirst amongst others on the main fair. Barry Aisbett has his toyset next to the gallopers.
I have started building my shooting gallery up and I think we will put the big striker up as well.

You may well have sent 4 stamped adresses envelopes to me but I have not received them, and that is a fact. Do you have copies and dates please? We did indeed have Screetons Galopers alongside 'Renown', and as it was felt that the show would not stand two sets, sensible negotiations took place to reach a suitable compromise, as they know each other very well. They were equally very much enjoyed by us and our visitors.

Had a very enjoyable weekend. There was a great atmasphere throughout.
One particular highlight was watching Keith Collins about to load Pandora. It involved the telephone and asking for instructions on how to load the engine as he had never done it before. The couple of onlookers seemed to be taking it in.
It was great to see all of the showmans engines lit up next to the gallopers and stage show on the saturday night.
Roll on next year !!

Default road run!!

re-bottom gear, well I have a choice of two, bottom or top, so with a trailer full of coal & water plus passenger, having not done the road run at masham before[my son did it last year with me on the back] I decided on bottom gear [or low speed if you like] just so I didn't end up with egg on me mush if I didn't make it to the top!!
