    £10 for you and the car mate.
    Have to be in and set up before half 8 and have to stay there until 5pm.
    Can park your car on stand and come back and get it if you wish though yeah.

    Ok meeting plans for Sunday are as follows:
    6:30am to leave at 06:45
    Hermiston Gate Park and ride
    Riccarton Mains Road
    Currie
    Edinburgh
    EH145PX

    The gates at Ingliston are open from 6:30am to 8:30am for outdoor stands to get in and set up. Anyone arriving after 08:30am will not be allowed access to the stand area with their vehicle so if your late you've had it sadly.

    All wrist bands and window sheets will be dished out at the meeting point so everyone has them on arrival at Ingliston.
    Once we are parked up the cars can't move again until 17:00.

    Those requiring extra tickets can be purchased on arrival at Ingliston.
    Any questions or queries feel free to fire me a pm and I'll try and help best I can.

    We have 50 cars on the stand so obviously not going to be the easiest job of getting all the cars in and set up etc but I'm sure we'll manage lol.

    So yeah, the people that claim to organise this have fucked up again, if you haven't already done so via Facebook can everyone please PM @gav896 before noon tomorrow with the following info

    . Reg No. -
    . Drivers Full Name -
    . Email Address -
    . Make -
    . Model -
    . Mobile Number -

    Yes, it's a complete pisstake but it's out with anyone's control. Apparently entry won't be allowed without this list being complete.

    Sending now. I must admit this is the weirdest car show in terms of ticketing / club access I've ever been to.

    Do we know if our entry tickets that we will be collecting at the meeting point on the morning will allow us into general public parking? There might be a genuine issue with us being locked down until 17.00 so may need to park elsewhere so we can get out earlier if needed?

    I genuinely don't know Nik, sorry.

    Given past experience I'd say there's a decent chance as not one person has a f**king clue what is happening!

    The whole thing has to be the worst organised event of any sort I've attended, last year I said I wouldn't go back but been persuaded too. If the queue to get in is like last year I'll be joining you later on in the public car park!

    Yup, the show itself is fine, nothing amazing, nothing awful. But trying to organise a stand and give them quite a lot of money for it is a f**king nightmare.
    Which is why I'm very grateful to Gav for taking it on this year as I won't have any more involvement with Sharon who is the clubs main contact.

    Getting there lol. Yeah it's unorganised chaos to be honest but will be worth it in the end the stand is going to look mega. But yes John I agree the organisers are complete roasters !
