Just to remind everyone that the VAME Meet on 9th June is timed to coincide with the WW2 weekend at the Great Central Railway to make a day of it.

You can walk between the venue for the VAME Meet to the Quorn station, which is usually kitted out as a US Army base (the different stations have different themes).  It is the main focal point for the event, with fly pasts, a beer tent, 1940s music etc.

More details of the WW2 event will be posted here:

Well I've had confirmation from the Long Haired General that my leave pass for the day has been signed - so long as I get my duties at Mad Ferret Farm complete.  I have a suspicion that this will cost me a trip to a Garden Centre and a Craft Fair and....... but what the hell!

All being well I'll see everyone there - by the way I'll be the bloke with the big tashe!

Hi Tom, yes, there a lots of hotel in the area of Quorn village and the town of Loughborough nearby.  The only problem may be that because Loughborough is hosting Team GB and Team Japan in the build-up to the Olympics, hotels will probably get quite full in June.

It depends how much you are prepared to spend.  The venue itself is immediately next door to the Quorn Country Hotel, which is very nice and convenient but expensive:

The Cedars Hotel is on the Quorn side of Loughborough.  I have heard good reports from people who stayed there and it is not expensive:

Plus Palitoy display boards on loan from Leicestershire Museums and hopefully Bob Brechin will be able to come along for a chat too.

As if that wasn't enough, Tim is hoping to set up a rolling slideshow of his fantastic VAM photos on the big screen if we can rig up a projector!

It should be great day and don't forget it is timed so that you can combine the VAME Meet with the WWII weekend at the Great Central Railway nearby:

There's no charge for admission either (donations welcome if you've had a good day ).
