Aled has posted entry details for this event on the Facebook group. This is his post

https://bloodwise.org.uk/content/big-we ... -show-2017 17th september chepstow race course.:
This is the link to enter your car -just place imp club in the club section I tried to phone to get a group area but they said owners have to enter and put in the name of your club.

This is the same event that has been held at Margam Park for the last 2 years, which was itself the replacement for the Tredegar House Show that was held in Newport for over 30 years, and was well supported by Impers. We've just signed up to take Hilda. Hope to see a good Imp turn out now that the event is being held nearer the Severn.

According to the invite there are no club areas we have to save space if we want to be together
Any plans who else is going.
We will be there but it would be great if we can park the Imps together

I'm going but with HRCR but what you want to do is find out how many going and if you cant all arrive together which may not be possible , the first person there reserve enough spaces
Thats what I'm going to do as we have 10 passes and also big gazebo to put up. May be we can be next to each other so I can have my imp in both club areas!

Had a thought about this afterwards. When we went to St Fagans Show that was the same, no allocated areas for smaller club groups, so we and a few other clubs met a couple of miles away in the M4 services and drove in together in convoy. That may be the answer. No idea where to meet though.

You can meet and wait for each other in the big carpark opposite the racecourse , just turn into it from the roaundabout outside the main entrance ,

Hi Nick
Are you joining us? It's on your doorstep isn't it? A turbo Imp or the Clan would attract interest for sure.

The car park seemed too obvious !! Also depends whether they are using that for the paying punters to park.

Thanks for the suggestion

Hello Phil ,
Imp is not on the road , Clan is, but i need it that weekend .. It leads a busy life ! I might walk up if i can .
They probably will use the car park but it has always been free for events up there . Is there an autojumble ?

Autojumble? Don't know. The 2 shows in Margam which ran before the move to Chepstow were poor for traders unless you wanted crafts and arty things. Last year there was one auto trader and he had a small table. I heard him saying that they were charging him a fortune that he would be lucky to make a profit on. I hope they have changed their stance and that there are more traders.

Apologies for absence from us - we'll be down in Cornwall that weekend. However we aim to be at Chepstow next year (assuming this show will be a regular fixture).
Hope it is a really good show - worthy of the old Tredegar Park events. See you at WWW.

Phil & Lesley
Andy
Dom
Aled

Anyone else coming?

We're thinking of meeting up a couple of miles away and driving in together so that we get to park together as there are no allocated Club pitches.

We're meeting in the Homebase car park at Thornwell, on the outskirts of Chepstow, to drive in and park together.

Meet at 9:15 and leave ASAP depending on Aled's run from Llanelli (Newport tunnel closed and diversion will be in place).

Homebase is just off Jnc2 M48 down the little dual carriageway into the housing estate, and 2.5 miles from the racecourse. So we should be able to drive that in 5 mins.

They say we need to be in by 9:45. We'll leave at 9:30 and keep you a space.
