Over the last weekend the branch attended all 3 days of the show with Ken masterminding operations in terms of marquee, equipment, provisions etc. Luckily the weather held and crowds were good although they seemed more intent on parting with their cash on the stalls than fly tying. Nevertheless a good number of punters came to see what we were all up to and enquire about the branch and Guild.
Our location was not ideal but we had plenty of space for setting up as you can see below which shows our professionally set up marquee.
Attendees from the branch who manned the stands over the weekend were Ken, Chairman Pete, Paul, Julia, Brian and myself as you can see from the below shots.
Thanks to everyone for their support and company – it was good fun as usual. Thanks also to Paul’s Mum for providing a mammoth fruit cake again and to Ken for organising the whole thing.
We are out there flying the flag ( or in this case the fish!!)
