OK well today is Bob Brechin’s Birthday which makes it as good a day as any in my book for an Action Man Announcement!
Also I think collectors could do with something to put a smile on our collective faces following the sad disappearance of Major Bob Tom during his epic Mission Mercury 10!
Some of you may have already had privileged glimpses, or heard rumours or done some extrapolation following the video I posted of the Palitoy Factory Site Tour and my slightly cryptic poetry a while back!
So without more ado you need to keep the weekend of December 3rd & 4th COMPLETELY FREE in your diary for Action Man’s 50th Anniversary Convention!
Which will be held in Coalville, Leicstershire former home of the Palitoy Factory.
More specifically, DRUM ROLL PLEASE, it will be held on the ACTUAL SITE of the old Palitoy Factory!
Watch this space for more details of Table Costs, Early Birds, Admission Times and prices, Hotel Pacakages etc.
Well today I have managed to secure a deal with a local hotel literally 5 minutes from the venue to get a modest discount on their usual room rate attendees. So contact me ASAP if you want to be in the main hotel. If this anything like the old Bovington Conventions there was lots of dealing and fun to be had in the hotel as well as the venue.
ROOM DEAL £57 per room per night for Room Only Single or Double Occupancy. Bed & Breakfast £60 Single Occupancy or £65 Double Occupancy per room per night.
There is a limited number of twins rooms so expect them to disappear quickly.
OK Today's first update I have finalised the Table Price as being £35 per 6 foot table for the whole weekend.
Until I can start on a floorplan I cannot say what the policy will be with regard to backing tables and "spreading out" so for now assume a 6 foot table means exactly that and no extras and book accordingly.
