    Just got these details of this show through from Trevor Goacher.

    I include an extract from the entrance form for information.

    Personally speaking, I have very fond memories of this show but in recent years it has less relevance for model submariners.

    However if you live close by it would be well worth visiting. It is also a whole weekend show with camping available and a Saturday evening buffet at the "Great House" , which has some appeal.
