Advance warning. I shall be away from 13 April to 2 May inclusive. I hope you will continue with a meeting in my absence. I am happy to deliver any of the scenery you may want to wherever. Just let me know.

It's no good delivering it to me, I don't have a square inch of space left in the car. 8O

One assumes that you are off on another jaunt to a far flung land?

Travelling through Belgium on a Great War River cruise, particularly visiting ANZAC battlefields and memorials.

Great trip, its very humbling to know the cost to mankind in that area.

The only dates I'm available to open the scout hut until the end of May are; 22nd of April or the 6th of May.

I suggest the next tank meet at Templecombe be the 6th May. This is however a bank holiday weekend.

Thoughts please??

We have a new location to try out. Next meet has been booked for Sunday, 6 May at the Corsham Scout Hut. 10 till 5. The address is
Corsham Scout Group
The Laggar
Corsham
SN13 0DE

You can find it on Google Maps by searching for Corsham Scout Hut.

I hope everyone can make it. The premises has a smoke alarm system, so best if you disable you smokers at least for the time being. And Rob, no smoke pellets. Cost to be advised ASAP.

Cost for now should be no more than previously.

For anyone who would like to know, the Bristol Armoured Division now has a new venue. Many thanks to George for doing the groundwork to get this sorted, I am sure we all owe him a vote of thanks. We have two halls, the one in the video is half the size of the other one, and (again thanks to George) we also have a hard foam ground surface to run the tanks on, and it works brilliantly.

Coffee facilities are available, and local shops can provide other refreshments and hot food etc.

Here's a quick ten minute video that shows the hall we used last Sunday. As someone once said 'The Eagle has landed'. :D

George has proposed the following dates for Corsham
- 3rd June & 8th July. Responses please. Apparently, the 3rd is the only available Sunday in June. Unfortunately, I am not available on either of these dates, but please don't let that stop the rest of you. Not that it would!

Another excellent meet, and another two new members, which was good to see. I took some pics, as I know Richard (Silversurfer) is possibly wondering what he missed.

No August meeting, I'm afraid. George is checking out available dates for September, October and November so we can plan ahead.

They didn't have the space for us last year, so we dropped them for this year. We are looking at a couple of other venues/shows though.

Hi im interested in BAD , interested in joining but am in Gloucester but am from Bristol.
I've been told there is a meeting in Corsham on 2/9 and have it on my calender.

That video of the HL King Tiger is fantastic. I have 2 HL King Tiger's which I've just bought and would love to modify to moved and sound like that. The gun recoil front HL is appalling and so is the sound in comparison.

P.s. I don't have any buildings at the moment
