    Looks like the rate and number of cases in the area is on the rise, (like it is in many other places). https://www.shropshirestar.com/news/local-hubs/telford/2020/08/20/coronavirus-cases-spread-wide-over-telford-wrekin/
  3. Nord Star more like - as they do both patrol "work" boats and leisure; says the person who is not far from the Halberg-Rassy UK dealers! Anyhow - to get this back on topic - I commend the organisers for their forward and joined up thinking, and common sense. They now have the time to sit back and absorb the industry and museum requirements for a future event, and can glean from what I am going to call "professional " events, and I hope anyone from that club reading in, will take that the way I put it, as they are hardworking volunteers who all have other lives, but come

    A number of SIGS that I support have now all stated their plan is to not go this year;. I am just waiting to speak with a couple more of my own SIG who have been incommunicado for a few days, to see if they want to put on a display. Comments from both Safety Dad and Jenko are in-line with my own view. I am also aware of a number of traders who have opted to have their deposit transferred over ready for 2021, and are thus not going. If I were to go, a lot of the people I would like to meet up with, I already know, will not be there; as they have categorically said "

    No matter how much you try - and put notices up asking people not to touch - the tables and stuff at front does get touched.

    Things have changed. Attending a model show is not going to be like it was last year. Going back to playing a sport or using a village hall has changed dramatically. If you hire a village hall (and I have spoken to people in other villages around us, who do likewise and the village halls are in neighbouring counties Hampshire and Wiltshire, and all our respective village halls are requiring us to thoroughly clean everything BOTH on entering the building, AND before we leave. This covers cleaning toilet seats, washbasins, mirrors not touching curtains which have been

    This week the IPMS have published a news update, which alludes that things will be different, if indeed they do happen in some form. Yesterday I also received an email (as a SIG leader), which asks a couple questions, and invites a response. Both of which I will copy in below. First the IPMS general info release: Now the text of the email: Whilst there is so much up in the air, and there is no information forthcoming by the society on "how" or what they even think they might try and organise, if they can, get the go-ahead, it is hard for member

    Around the UK any and indeed many hotels which are reopening, are only working at 50% occupancy, and have to do this, so as to "air" the rooms at present. That coupled with them unable to serve self-service style buffets for breakfasts, which the on-site and other large nearby hotels do or did; and then they now will have to wipe down seats and tables and everything else between punters is going mean a lot of congestion around what few they can seat, as to the hotels in the area - many of which have not yet given any indication on websites as to when they will reopen - such as the Ramada

    Shops now have to quarantine goods for 72 hours that have been touched by customers. As a for instance: Exbury Gardens in Hampshire, is a 200 acre outdoor site, they are now open again, and are allowed 500 guests a day, with staggered entry throughout the day (75-80 guests per hour can enter throughout the day from 10am.) They have toilet blocks that have I think nearly 20-24 cubicles in them; and they are allowed to have 4 available to use, based on how they are grouped with the doors opening and people/access to them. Likewise out of umpteen urinals most are cordone

    I was contacted by a member of my SIG end of last week, and he said that his booking for the Telford University rooms has already been cancelled for the two nights he had booked for SMW weekend. That then poses interesting questions. If and it its big IF.... some hotels are allowed to reopen, with strict reductions on guests, and some bars are also allowed to reopen but with smaller numbers of punters in them, where will everyone who attends (assuming that people do go) stop, or eat. as there are also an awful lot of people who stop in an awful lot of small B&
