I so envy your nearly institutionalized shows (and the regular schedule). One of the highlights of the publications of the SRGC and the AGS are the show reports. There's nothing in the US to compare...

Then you need to persuade a few stalwarts of our shows to come over and run one for you :)

Not much use me getting Show Schedule but what I DO want please, is for those who attend the shows to take their cameras and I know you're all very busy with entries, helping exhibitors, judging, stewarding and eating cake, but PLEASE remember those of us who can't attend and take many, many pictures for us. We seemed not to have so many Forum Show reports this last year,

Well, I have to take exception to that, Lesley.  :( :-X...... I believe there were a good many extensive Forum show reports..... there were not the usual quota of WebSite SRGC  Show Reports, the ones Sandy does on the main site, and that was because Sandy was not able to attend  all the shows this year nor was he able to make reports for others.
We had a goodly number of fine reports from AGS Shows, too .........often courtesy of the Pudsey Piglets... their reports similarly fuelled by cake.... no, Lesley... I must ask you to look back and think again!  :-*


This is not to say that it wouldn't be very nice to see some more of the Forumists who attend many shows, and wield their cameras there, get their photos on the forum for the sake of Lesley and all the other far-flung forumists who enjoy their show treats.
It is a case of hoping that more of you will join in and share the "work" and share the fun even more by so doing!

I must have been sleeping then or just missed them. I lost a lot of new topics when I had computer problems about a year ago or a bit less. I'll look through the Index and see what I can find.
