Highclere Show 25/26th May

Hi Bucksden,
Are we the only two people within 20 miles of Newbury.
We as a family have been going for the past 8 years or so. However I thought that last year was a bit of a Rip Off.
As usual we went on the Monday and get there early. I think we were charged £11 and by about 12:00 a number of the stalls were packing up , probably due to the wet weekend.

On our way out we stopped at the ticket office and asked for a bit of a re-fund, which they refused. But what made us really angry was, at around 14:00 they were still charging full price to new arrivals.
In the days after I tried continually through Emails to send a complaint but each time the Email could not reach the recipient.
OK gripe over. It is a good little show and we will probably go again this year.
The Estate could do with filling in the pot holes on the way out though.

The last one I went to was all Embroidery, Paintings, Corn Doilies, Clothing and Cookery with the odd bird display and a few sheep.
No guns!!

... so who went? Mrs Mole looked out of the window this morning and decided we'd go shopping instead. Seem to remember that today is a mirror image of Highclere last year :(

Hi Mole, Same here. Mrs Techman decided she didn't want to get muddy again.
I bought some 6.5x55 bullets at Bisley Saturday and decided that it would be and ideal time to load a few. I also cleaned some cases and re-sized them, cleaned rifles and can check Zero on Wednesday.
So not a bad day after all.
