Yes, I missed last years but been a regular for many years and i was surprised how quiet it was... you could actually get to the stalls!!

I took my son for his first Bisley visit, and he was surprised how small the trade stands were.

Did you notice if Norman Clark was there? He has quite a large stall as a rule.

Norman Clarke was there.
First stall on the left as you go in; biggish stall butperhaps smaller than theirsusex to be.

I remember physically struggling to get around in the past. Yesterday itfelt almost empty in comparison.

I did my second lap of the marquee around 2.30 pm, it was almost deserted then.

A friend who was there did tell me. Something like £325 + VAT, per 6ft table, for the weekend...

This is the first year ever I've not attended... I can't help thinking that 50 individual gazebo sized plots at £50 a pop, sited on the grass behind Fultons would bring more interest to what is now a very dull show. There must be plenty of belt makers, walking stick carvers, bullet casters, knife makers, etc. etc. who would take a chance and fork out £50 but certainly not lob out £400.

Total cost to the NRA - Zero.

Back when, the fee was dependant on who you asked.

Nothing and I mean nothing has been done to encourage anyone to go to the Phoenix.

Be that sellers or buyers.

Such a shame.

Opening day Friday morning 8am there were less than ten of us waiting to get in, stall holders were either setting up or had not even started setting up.
