Ideally yes , tried Bolton Suzuki to borrow one of theirs but can't get a definite yea or nay....so got to treat it as negative.

Copy you in to latest message :


MANCHESTER BIKE SHOW
29 & 30 JANUARY 2022, EVENTCITY
EVENTCITY, PHOENIX WAY, OFF BARTON DOCK ROAD
MANCHESTER, M41 7TB

A December Update
I just thought I would drop you a quick email as we are now 5-6 weeks from the doors opening at the Manchester Bike Show.

I attended Motorcycle Live at the NEC on the Tuesday as I usually do. The NEC’s requirement to produce a vaccine passport in order to gain entry to the venue didn’t seem to cause any upset despite it not being a legal requirement at the time. There were signs up at the entrance requesting that visitors wear face masks but once inside the show perhaps 5-10% of visitors and even fewer of the exhibitors did so and this also seemed to be the case when the Motorcycle Show was recorded at the NEC on a different day. It was great to see so many people I hadn’t seen for over two years and most of them seemed quite pleased to see me too! I left the venue clutching a number of bookings for Manchester and the feeling that if nothing changed we would be able to run a successful show in January. However within 24 hours everything was changed by the televised Downing Street press briefing with Boris telling us to cautiously carry on with our lives as planned and Chris Whitty telling us that if we did the country could be in a whole lot of trouble very quickly.

That briefing took place two weeks ago to the day which amply serves to demonstrate how quickly things have moved on and my own personal feelings are that had it not been for Christmas the country would already be in some form of lockdown. Whatever your politics and whatever you feel about the way the last two years have been handled it is hardly a secret that tighter restrictions are on their way very soon after Christmas although what form these restrictions take and how long they will last depends very much on the data on the new variant. Therefore as far as the bike show is concerned our current position is that the event will go ahead at the end of January unless the government (and/or the venue) tell us differently and we will adhere to whatever restrictions are in place at the time. We really do want the show to go ahead as planned because on paper we have a really good event lined up for everyone to enjoy but whether it does or not is really out of our hands. We will of course keep you up to date immediately any changes do occur.

Thank you for your continued encouragement and support.

Have a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Kind regards

People of club land, we need to make the show display personal and not just a display of m/cs .
To this aim I would like photos of club members with their Kats , so as to add to a wall for interest .
I would prefer photos through the post because printing pictures could be problematic ...but proper photos have more interest and impact.
Please!

To make it easy to get the photos to Fossie, you can email or pm me the pics, I can print them & send them north with the trailer.
