We've decided not to do the Dublin Port rally at Dun Loaghaire as the logistics are too tight and the cdost of the trip enormous for a small revenue and as it's miles from Dublin Port little to be gained from filming, what i do still want is a couple of days in Co Cork and Waterford plus South Tipperary filming lorries, if it doesn't get done this year it is certainly going to roll forward. Talking of looking forward I notice that a lot of rally dates have been published for 2018 including Showbus 30th September at it's now new regular venue at Donington, I hope the good siting and regularity there will encourage more people to make the trip, the Christmas cracker event at Manchester we now have the entry form for, prices have risen yet again although they try to suggest they have fallen, too much smoke and mirrors.
I would say that none of the events are now certain to attract us as it seems so random as to what business we'll do in these much tougher trading circumstances. You don't get your cake and eat it as they say because so much now happens on the internet shops, people will insist on using EBay and Amazon while our own shop is the best bet and has everything we've produced on it. Amazon still charges postage and EBay just has a sample selection and is a pain to load on but that reminds me it's a job I need to do, I got caught up on the latest DVDs and all covers are done and the shop page on this site is fully up to date.
