Re: LMA Cosford swapmeet

Well, Weston’s gone for another year, in spite of the weather, we coped, the boss came down to see what it was all about, I think he and his team were impressed, SO, it’s Cosford turn, it’s your swapmeet, I hope you take advantage of it, come and pick up a form, it’s not rocket science, :D
