Hi all

It's that time of year again, five months to go and time to start thinking of South Glos. Show once again. First off here's the link....

South Gloucestershire Show | Lifestyle and Leisure

Those who have attended before know the format, if you haven't, have a good look around the website, loads of info there. Also check back on the SLK World Forum UK thread for lots of photos and comments from 2015 and 2014.
One thing to note, the site says 250 cars expected, in fact there were 400 last year and they are expecting 500 this year! So should be bigger and better than ever for petrolheads!
To show your SLK on our stand click on exhibit, download the form and send it off with payment, £5.00 for one day, £10.00 for Saturday and Sunday, including entry for two people.
DO WRITE "SLK WORLD FORUM" SOMEWHERE ON YOUR ENTRY FORM.
Many people like to make a weekend of it and do both days. There is much accommodation of all types available locally so I'll leave it up to you to explore the possibilities, but if you want some local advice just post here.
The Mercedes Benz Club have other commitments this year so once again it will be an SLK World Forum only stand, I'd REALLY like to get between 15 to 20 cars if possible to make a real impact.
As usual if you would like to attend, copy and paste the attendance sheet below and add your details inc. model and year. If you post here I will assume that you are entering/have entered and paid your fee to the show organisers.
Sooooo.....

I'd like to attend South Glos. Show 2016....

Really enjoyed the last one Tony, but it looks like I'll be off shore for this years show. :crying: I'll have to see if I can swap my rota about nearer the time. :smile:

Hi Tony

Heather and I are planning to come along for both days. I'll copy/paste and add our details to your list as soon as I've sent off my exhibit form (likely to be early next week as we have a busy weekend ahead).

Thanks, Dave :)

20% weekend hotel discount

I spoke with Don Falkener today the owner of the Bodkin House Hotel and he has very kindly offered a 20% discount off their normal room rates for any Forum members attending South Glos Show who stay for two nights.
the Bodkin | Traditional Country Inn
Those who have eaten there previously will attest to the quality of the food and with just ten rooms this is a cosy Cotswold country house hotel adjoining the Badminton Estate, only seven miles from the showground.
We will be returning this year for our SLK Forum dinner on Saturday evening.
Room availability is limited so if you would like to take advantage of this offer get your booking in soon!

Sadly, we won't be joining you this year. The date clashes with a charity event we always support on the Saturday and Pete has to work on the Sunday. :frown:
I'm so sorry to hear that, you will be missed!
Maybe Pete could take a well earned day off and you could attend on Sunday?

I should like to visit the South Gloucs. Show on Sunday. I have sent my entry form and money to organiser. My car is a silver SL 350
Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

Your 1st thread should be your introduction so we can welcome you properly so post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already. New Members Introduce Yourself Here - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM. You can always pm a moderator.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
FREE!! Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.
Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

Thank you

BUMP!

Just three months to go believe it or not and my hopes for an attendance of 15-20 seem a little forlorn at the moment.
I know everyone likes to leave it till the last minute but it does make planning difficult and does nothing for my nerves!
Please do try and support this event, it is, I think, one of our premiere events during the year and comments from previous attendees back this up.
So do decide soon to support South Glos Show this year and enter your names on the list......

Best
TonyS

Thanks Tony. :tu:

I'm pleased I'm able to make it again. Can't understand why there aren't more names on the list yet, especially after last years show being so good. :frown:

Hopefully we'll get a run of late entries as it gets nearer the time. :smile:
