    Hi Pete,
    Yes I think he would :avatar:all the corner tables have their own separate legs which are bolted and slotted into place, the bridges are laid separately which are resting on ledges of 4 other tables with their own legs.takes about an hour with a little bit of help to set it all up ready for running. My partner is outside now building an add-on steam up table instead of on the actual layout.Hoping it will all be ready and working for the first week-end in July for Padstow Show which is a 3 day event.
    Regards,
    Gloria.

    Hi everyone,
    I was just wondering if any members are on holiday in Cornwall next week, as we are looking for anyone that could help us out at Padstow Rally. Some of our members are unavailable owing to family commitments if so please let me know by Wednesday July 3rd please.
    Regards,
    Gloria.
