This must be very fresh news, as it isn't on the official T&T website yet - can anyone confirm it?
Tom...Did you click the link. If not this is what is stated right at the top!!!!!!!
It is with great regret that MyHobby Store announce that the show, provisionally titled Trucksíní Tracks and Planesíní Ships, that was due to take place over the weekend of 26th-27th February 2011 has been cancelled.
Having taking over the Trucks íní Tracks show comparatively late in the year and, at that time, being completely engrossed in the forthcoming 25th Anniversary of Euromilitaire, we were unable to concentrate as much as we would have wished on what was, and still is, a complete re-launch of the other event. As time passed, we realised that we had really little chance of putting on a show in such a short time if we were to do so to the incredibly high standard set by Euromilitaire. As many of you may be aware, we set out to completely revamp the competitions associated with the show while, at the same time, expand them to include many other classes, i.e. aircraft, ships, etc.
Simultaneously, we have contacted a large number of foreign clubs to invite them to both display and enter the competitions and, to do justice to them, we wanted the new competition rules to be as fair and correct as possible. To this end, the nominated Chief Judge and compiler of the new rules, Geoff Illsley, has been in contact with many internationally renowned modellers to invite them to be a judge at the new show. These contacts are still ongoing and, to date, have been most encouraging, but Geoff still needs time to complete his judging team. Also, a welcome number of clubs, both national and international, have already expressed interest in participating at the show.
However, we all felt we needed more time and with just 3 months to go before the show, we had to make a decision on whether to carry on and hope for the best or cancel the show for this year and concentrate on putting together a show to take place in February 2012 that would maintain the high standards associated with MyHobbyStoreís other events. So, we now have that time and we at MyHobbyStore will keep you informed of progress as we approach the launch of the, as yet un-titled, all-new show that, with the plans we have, will, I assure you, be very exciting
