Once again it’s the late spring Bank Holiday and time for the Crick Boat Show. All this came in one car and we’ve spent the day setting up our stand.
We’re looking forward to meeting lots of lovely people during the show. Please try to avoid the busy middle part of Saturday or Sunday if you’d like a long technical discussion about something. And, if you’d like an upgrade or update for your maps then please remember to bring details of your previous purchase(s).
Our corner stand is on the middle isle of the main marquee. I hope we’ll we see you there.
The 2017 Crick Boat Show opens on Saturday morning and we’ll be there. We’ve expanded to our largest ever stand – on a corner near the centre of the main marquee, larger than our 2015 corner stand. Please come and see us.
The car is looking very full, and and we’ll be setting off early tomorrow morning. Friday is always a busy day, getting everything set up for a smooth start on Saturday morning.
We’ll have the May 2017 version of all our maps, that’s issue 62, and you can update to the latest version at a discounted price. If you are doing that it would be very helpful if you can email in advance so we can reserve a copy for you and calculate the discount in advance.
The IWA Festival of Water 2016 takes place over the August Bank Holiday weekend. This year it’s at Pelsall at the junction of the Wyrley & Essington Canal and the Cannock Extension Canal, towards the northern edge of the Birmingham Canal Navigations.
Waterway Routes is already there. The Cheese boat will be behind us and the Jam Butty in front.
There will be land based entertainment as well as the trading boats.
The Waterway Recovery Group volunteers are busy tackling all the impossible jobs, like relocating a portable toilet which is too heavy to lift, using a pallet and a mini tractor. I wonder if anyone was in it.
Please come and say hello if you are visiting the show.
We’ve just finished a busy day setting up our stand at the Crick Boat Show.
We’ve moved location, a little, to get a bigger stand this year to celebrate our anniversaries, but we are still on the back row of the Boating Marquee. We’re now in the centre of the back row, between the fire doors.
It’s 10 years since we started producing DVDs and we’ve produced more than 50 DVDs.
The May issue is the 50th monthly update for our maps and we’ve produced more than 60 different maps.
Everything is in stock and we’ll be very pleased to see you. Please come and say hello if your are visiting the show – but please try to avoid the very busy middle part of Saturday if you would like a long chat.
If you would like to update your maps to the latest version then we can do it at a discounted price if you bring proof of your earlier purchase. If you email me in advance (email@example.com) then I can check my records and calculate the discount ready for you.
