It's not looking good for VAME Meet 10, thanks to the coronavirus...
Let's wait and see what Boris has to say later today, but I can't see it going ahead to be honest. Trying to maintain "social distancing" at an Action Man social event seems a bit pointless, even if we are allowed to travel by then. Does buying old Action Man bits count as shopping for essentials?
There wasn't much in Boris' announcement last Sunday to give any hope that a VAME Meet could go ahead on 21st June. I can't see the coronavirus restrictions being relaxed enough in time for an event like ours to go ahead.
I think it's reaching the point where I should cancel it now and see if there's a slot later in the year once the restrictions are lifted. I suspect we won't get many people coming next month even if the rules are changed by then.
I've just confirmed with the venue that the VAME Meet scheduled for 21st June 2020 is cancelled.
daz - can you edit the poster to say "CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19" in big letters please?
The hall isn't charging me any cancellation fees and is offering to rebook us in for later this year. I will wait until it is clearer when group events might be able to take place again without a lot of extra precautions. Some Action Man - themed face masks might not be too bad though!
Hi that sounds a great idea . Vam curtains to face masks lol I like it. It go with action girls dress . (Think thats her ) she made a dress out of some curtains and had it on at the vam meet few years ago .
..VAME is the best an Action man can get .....there can only be one ....there is only one ..... VAME....
