    Went along today, well done to all involved in organising and exhibiting, especially the Bangor club that made the trip down. It as jam packed with people and a tight squeeze to get to view the layouts properly.

    Some really bad quality pics below, recommend the trip if anyone if considering going but hasn't gone yet.
