I was there Saterday not as many stands a last year and a lot more clubs, I think it's going the same way as Sandown Park .
What organisers fail to see is that without the trade stands there is no show. It's very nice to see all the models too and without those there also is no show.
People justify going on the back of picking up a bargain and also see ing the items they wish to buy in the flesh.
The overheads of a trade stand must be huge, hotels wages, subsistence allowances, the venue its self, travel costs etc etc.
Many big names no longer attend the shows and it is a shame, however understandable, take to the limit none will attend and that will be a loss to all concerned.
