Title: Next Years Shows
Post by: Brian on October 03, 2020, 10:21:15 AM

Well it has already started
Our friends at  les Feles have had to cancel their show,  how many more will have to be cancelled we'll just have to wait and see!
Kulmbach is still in doubt so keep your fingers crossed  :( 

 From   Les Fêlés (

This is the big heart that we have to announce the cancellation of our 27th edition of ′′ Spotlight on Macquetism ′′ in Roselies, February 6 and 7, 2021. 😢

 Some will say: ′′ Another one more...", but given the upsurge in Covid-19 cases since early September and the strict health measures imposed, without any certainty of an improvement in the coming months, organize an event like this that ours, which drains several thousand people every year, from various countries in Europe and elsewhere, is not possible.

 We would be forced to impose on everyone wearing the mask, barriers, maximum number of people in the exhibition halls, reduction of the number of stands and the number of exhibitors per stand (given the social distancing imposed), and many other measures that would not be in the spirit of conviviality that we used to you during our previous editions.

Brian Its the same on this side of the pond. :(  There is a Toy Solider show in DC in December and I don't know if that is going to happen. So what is going to happen to you all. Are you going to have to stay in place again. As for figures and books not a good year. So how does this effect you in shipping stuff. Willie

Maybe we're being too negative Willie, get this year out the way and we will be back to shows but don't hold your breath  :(
Shipping seems to be fine at the moment but see what happens next year.

Let's be optimistic !!! If Roselies in Belgium drops, the next one is Lugdunum, in Lyon, South of France end of February, then Montrouge in Marc in Paris.....

Let us believe that Europeans will eventually be more mature and adult than today and be more cautious in their attitude to contain this virus.  Vaccine is not going to happen before mid next year at earliest..... Everything else is fakae news as we are used to hear by some politicians ... without any scientific nor medicinal background.

Asian areas will reach this because they are les egocentric and individualist than our western world. Perhaps we should organize shows in Thailand, Taiwan, or Japan, or Korea ???

We will keep our fingers crossed Michel, but this year has been a disaster for a lot of people, not just in modelling world.
Have not see any of the BFFS guys this year and only got to one show right at the beginning but we are still here fighting our corner of the virus.
Next year will be better with lot's to look forward to,  already booked up for the World Expo in Holland and Kulmbach,  but then I was supposed to have left today for Germany to Regina's to get the WM moulds but that's cancelled .
Lets get Christmas out the way and see what happens, will post of any shows cancelled as we get to know
Buy the way "Bugle Call" down Bristol way is not on.
