We'll be there doing our bit to help promote the hobby, it's mostly about Model Railroading but there's also a few other hobby stands there worth taking a look at.

He's just Trolling because of an issue with tables at Model-X,
We'll get what we get, the tables are free but someone has to pay for them so we make the most of what we get on the day. ;)

Tempted to make the trip up.
Last time we had to deal with unusually low snowfall from Taihape right the way up so may wait and see what the weather does.
Its a good lil show that the wife didnt mind attending due to the other crafts etc on display.

I think you mean phone to confirm, that I have received the confirmation letter to confirm that I have received the package that I responded to and got confirmation of...............
Which in reality is pretty much how the Model-X Auckland process went.

New dogs :D
Its all confirmed, we have 8 Tables to fill.
They also sent me exhibitor passes, setup is from Friday 13:00 through to 21:00 and doors open to the non public on Saturday 08:00 - 10:00, and Sunday is 09:00 - 10:00 for setup purposes.
I have 8 passes you won't be allowed in to the hall without one, I'm guessing that if you are with a partner so long as one of you has a pass the other should be ok.
If you want to PM me your addresses I'll get your pass out ASAP or you can just send me or one of the others a Text on the day and we'll come get you, the latter option might be a better idea for those who aren't helping out for both days.

I've got the friday off to try get some models finished and probably help set the hall up. are you going to be setting up on the friday or saturday Gary? plus i will most likely get a pass but if i don't i'll pm you.

Hadley, not sure how cheap but the Spa Hotel is about 500m from the AC Baths and they have cabins might be a good place to try. oh and they have a Bar :cheer: and restaurant
