Astle Park 1000 Engine rally

23/24 June. Just wondering how many list members will be going this year?
Charles Wendel is expected to make his second visit but this year he won't
be accompanied by a coach load of Americans.

I've got my pass already, so would normally be there Friday evening. However, a good friend is fifty on Saturday 23rd & has hired Brooklands for the evening. Sorry guys, might get a blast in a blower Bentley - I know you'll understand .................
I plan to be there Sunday & as they have been kind enough to send me two complimentary tickets *as well*, I might just wander round with the camera & Hazel for a change. Dunno yet.
The year has so few weekends recently, where did they all go?

Might I politely suggest that displaying one's name - or moniker - at your engine would be useful for identification?

Gentlemen,
A friend and I will visit on the Sunday, look out for a big fella with the word CAMPINGSTOVEMAN printed on his cap.

We are going to Astle, probably on the Saturday, Ray Hooley has promised to try and meet us there, but might be Sunday if his other commitments don't work out.

Sorry to bring pessimistic news, but as of now most fields in that area of Cheshire are practically under water. I think we have heavy showers forecast for Saturday and (maybe less so) Sunday. It's time to keep fingers firmly crossed for some good drying days in the coming week days!

That was the only good thing about the 1000 being at Tatton for many years. The ground there was super absorbent and a few years it saved the show. Astle is reasonable for water.

I just had a phone call from Kevin Staton the 1000 engine secretary & site manager. (01260 281378 if you have any enquiries) Someone had told him that people were worrying about the site conditions for the 1000. He asked me to re-assure you that the site is today in very good condition & no problems are expected. By the way, someone mentioned to me that they had heard that the Lister-Petter had been cancelled. Does anyone know if this is correct?

had been cancelled.
No news in the website, but it is at a new location this year.
Details on their website:

I'm probably talking to myself by now, but Hazel indicated in a moment of weakness that even if I couldn't exhibit at Astle Park this year, we could visit on Sunday. This we shall do, driving up from the Saturday evening birthday bash at Brooklands to overnight nearby & in first thing.
I've prevailed further upon her good nature & the Anson will be graced by her presence later on Sunday. And so home........

Not having been to Astle Park before, and booked in for Sunday, I wondered if there was a club stand for selling everyone's no longer required spares? I have two brass open horse-shoe magnetos I was thinking of liquidating to part pay for a rebuild of another mag.

Yes there is a very good club stall that will sell them for you.
