Right were do we start, six weeks before the show was planned to go ahead Bretby Conference Centre decided to stop stop trading as a venue.  This left the club with a bit of a problem we had already advertised the event and only got six week to go before the date .
Thanks to Big Steve he found a warehouse that was not being used and we could rent it for the weekend, so we went and had a look at this dark dirty whole.
Nic, Steve and myself thought it could work with a major clear up.
Luckily the Koi Carp Association had also had booked Bretby and were on the look out for a alternative venue the week earlier.  The Carp Association started to turn this dump into something worth attending along with club members.  we helped to clean up the place to make it habitable.  That left the problem of our traditional night do linked to the show. For this we managed to agree the hire of a local hotel/nightclub which had been closed as a night club due to an incident 6 months earlier.  Two days later we were back on track and the word was spreading that were are still on for this event  

The morning of the show we meet in a cafe had a hearty breakfast and set of to the warehouse only to be meet by 14 plus traders awaiting to get in.  Gary had already set his stall on the Friday night before and the other trades soon started to fill the large warehouse.  We had 30 plus trades and 60 plus scooter on show with loads of space around stalls and scoots for all to to wonder.  We also arrange for a bar and food with tables and chair in the one room and all on one level.  Comments included great venue easy access and the trades loved it due to not having to lump goodies in and out the building, just park up and start trading
