need to check with family whether there's colliding plans this close to Easter.
Checked, no family plans yet. There'll probably be plans eventually, but they'll just have to fit around this :D

Usually for wives etc but can this be used for daughter Harry as a family member wanting to get involved?
Oh no risk of wife, she has less than zero interest in cars or club events

I will be there in the PZ, needs a bit of TLC so hopefully will be okay to be sat with all the others in the club stand [-o<

So me + 3 passengers, it'll be an uncomfortable road trip for some :D

Being a service dog may change the situation therefore this requires checking with the event organisers.

Assistance dogs can't legally be refused entry anywhere, as Conan stated and I'm sure you know

All you need to do is email Kelsey and let them know so they can make 'accommodations' (make staff aware probably) shows@kelsey.co.uk

Yeah I generally just adhere to general dog guidelines to avoid the paperwork headache and disdain from the general public.

As it’s just a day I’ll just self medicate and look before I leap(unlike my decision to by the rx in the first place), like Conan said noisewise and safety wise. I should experience it first.

Anywho, do I need to wait on a club code DM before purchasing a ticket? (Don’t want to divert from the event post anymore haha)

Just posted this morning, 80% of tickets for Japfest have been sold already! If you're thinking about coming along then please let us know and look into booking soon or they may be sold out quicker than previous years have! :shock: :thumleft:

looks like it'll be a great turnout both for the whole show and the RX8OC stand =D>
