A timely reminder to everyone. Rally 2013 is fast approaching and we will
be visiting the site next Saturday to manhandle the tables into position and
on site from early Sunday morning to meet and greet at first the Traders and
then our buying guests.
Doors will open at 1030am and we request that you all remember that and don’t
try to gain entry before that time. We need time first thing to allow everyone
to ready their stands for the visitors and to lend them a hand. We do not need
to be troubled by unauthorised visitors before the official start time as sorting
them out takes manpower away from more essential tasks. If you find yourself
asked to wait at the main door or to go back outside please comply with grace.
So have a lie in, don’t arrive at 9.00am and expect to come in immediately.
Opening is at 10.30am. We reserve the right to open earlier if all traders
are ready for the off and weather is particularly inclement.
Entry cost has been held at just £2.00 again this year even though the cost
of hiring the School seems to increase every year.
Opening time is 10.30 am
Items intended for sale on the bring and buy can be logged in before opening
of the show via the side entrance. Be prepared to pay a non returnable
administration fee of just 50p per item lodged for sale. This will help t
o cover our expences and deter entering numerous low value items for sale.
Whilst we take every possible precaution selecting traders for the show we
can not be held responsible for items purchased that are not fit for purpose.
So as buyers it up to you to carry out some due diligence and ensure you are
buying what you think you are buying and not a potentially expensive doorstop.
Contact details should appear within the programme and if you do have a problem
please contact the trader direct and not CRAC.
We hope to see a good crowd on the day as it is not just a trade show but an
annual social event giving everyone the chance to meet personally with and put
a face to the regular contacts you have beet talking with on a day to day basis.
So see you all there:
Cornish Radio Amateur Club Rally
Sunday 7th July 2013 — opens 10.30am — closes when the traders
decide to pack up their wares. My suggestion is to come earlier rather
than later as in the past few years we have been packed away earlier each year.
