Following the runaway success of the 1st VAME Meet earlier this year (  I’m pleased to announce that we have arranged to hold a 2nd VAME meet on the morning of Saturday 9th June 2012 in the village of Quorn near Loughborough.

As before, it is for Vintage Action Man Enthusiasts who want to buy/sell/swap vintage Action Man figures and accessories, show off their treasures and customs, or just have a chat.  The date, time and location are chosen to make it easy to combine with a visit to the excellent WWII weekend held every year at the Great Central steam railway nearby.

Plans are afoot to make this even bigger and better than the 1st VAME Meet and, believe it or not, entry is still free!

Further details will follow nearer the time, but for now, make a note of the date in your diaries and calendars and don’t miss out on the event for Vintage Action Man Enthusiasts in 2012!

Time and Place

Saturday 9th June 2012, 10am - 1pm in Quorn village hall:

If you would like to take a table to sell or display, please send me a PM.

I now have to decide if I should come to the show or go and see the reformed Black Sabbath at the Download festival. Why do great events always have to clash? [image]


Why not do both?  Download is just up the road and don't tell me Black Sabbath are playing on a Saturday morning!

I have seen Sabbath live and the orginal line up - they were very good. Ozzy Osbourne had to have song sheets as a guide, as he couldn't remember all the words he was that gone. Mind you he could remember all the words of the top of his head for 'Paranoid'.  grin

As main eventers Black Sabbath, will be on no earlier than 7-8pm, so there is still plenty of time to get to the VAME meet.

It's not just the VAME meet, I really fancy the WW2 weekend too as does my wife. I priced up doing both earlier. It didn't look good:

2 festival tickets = £300 + fees.
2 nights in a hotel (this postman's back is no longer suitable for hard ground) = £150 - £200.
Petrol,parking, tolls etc - at least £40
Beer and Food £? but usually my weakness
Money for Action man purchases £100+

That's going to add up to a minimum of £700. The only other band that has been confirmed is Metallica who I'd also love to see. Even if I missed the VAME meet and cut out the spending money for that I'd still be about £500 short of what I can afford to spend in a weekend. I think I better hope they play Cardiff.

I'll see what I can do.

Mike, I will put the date in my diary and try to get Brian Turner and some others to come along. Here's hoping Tony's film is approved and out by then. Have all you heavy metal guys been to see the very good exhibition at Birmingham Art Gallery. I was there in summer and there was talk of a permanent one.
