I'm looking for people who like operating at exhibitions

I live in Watford and I have a big 26ft x 10ft 'exhibition only' layout - and therein lies my problem - I don't drive and whilst I have a team of helpers, they all live miles away.

I am posting in all model railway fora to ask if there is anyone who lives close to me who enjoys exhibiting and a pint or two in a pub - we are a very social little group and the highlight of any show weekend is the Friday and Saturday night socials in the pub.

Is there anyone out there who likes the idea of joining us? You can meet the team at any time to suit you and see how you get on - the whole idea is to enjoy each others company and have a nice weekend away?

Do you think this person we are looking for could be you? I hope so, please send me a PM and we can arrange a meet in a pub - and I'm buying the drinks!

Not far from you but not willing to give up weekends I’m afraid.

Update.................

I've done quite well overall, although nobody 'just round the corner' yet.

Found - a driver who lives 20 minutes drive from me and who is keen to do exhibitions far and wide.

Found - offers for operators living in Manchester and Warrington which will be useful as I have bookings in Manchester, York and Wigan.

Found - operator who lives in Wiltshire and joined us at Bristol - he absolutely loved the whole experience and is up for my next show which is in Taunton.

Before my next show I am making simplifications to the operation which will make it really easy for newbies to start operating with virtually no training/practice necessary i.e. if you live near one of my upcoming shows and want to be part of the team when we come up your way, don't worry that you haaven't had opportunity to run the layout before - it will be VERY easy to pick things up in minutes.

In the next 12 months I'm looking for people living near Taunton, Aylesbury and Folkestone - how about it?
