Jeyes fluid is for External use Only, why the hell would you drink it? 
Because I like to feel clean and warm both inside and outside .

The vaccine is showing strong signs of preventing infection and so not carrying further infection as the numbers get larger we will have a better idea of what this will mean . As has been pointed out if you have have been vaccinated then you are not certain you will not catch Covid but your are sure that your infection and its effects on your system will be greatly reduced . So there is no real chance that you will die from attending the Wam Show unless you have the normal heart attack , kidney failure and fatigue from listening to awful music (you know who your are ) .

Please also remember that in theory the whole population will have been out from restrictions for over eight weeks by the time of the show so you will have more chance in that time than by the time of the show . For those really concerned by yourself a full face ppe mask and wear it .In that way you both fully protect yourself and others.

We need to keep this in perspective. The vaccination is one of the most successful administered. So far there is data showing something like 65-70% prevention of transmission. And after 2 vaccinations well over 90% prevention of severe effects or death. The deaths figure was as good as it could be as no one died in the group given the vaccination but the number of deaths in the control group were small. So as most of the people there will be of a certain age then it is likely they will have had both vaccinations and have very high immunity. Also, everyone over 40 will have been offered vaccination by then. And of course there will be the summer effect as well.

What will build confidence will be the months beforehand where hospitalisations and deaths will be maintained at low rates, although there will still be cases. The key thing here is not all the above numbers and medical statements but the confidence the public have and whether they are confident going to shows. I suspect with some straightforward precautions (no hugging or kissing which is easy to follow :D ) and possible number restrictions per room and maybe masks, all should be good. The trick is to get the balance right between the very small potential and the great benefits. Hiding away for years will not be a good option.

Oh and down South here a friend who is a JP got himself trained and was happily giving out vaccinations. A volunteer. He did say his first injection was interesting but as a JP he rarely gives away his feelings. Never play poker with a JP.

Restrictions to the number in a bedroom during demos would make it very frustrating for both exhibitors and attendees .....given the size of a room and even if we were down to 1 metre distancing that would prob mean a max of 3 people in a std room inc the exhibitor

I’m  with you Steve ...I want a great show and for pure selfish reasons I hope it isn’t the 18th or 25th Sept, I was merely pointing out the potential issues that any degree of social distancing requirement still in place would create.

I am currently planning a fantastic event for us at Kegworth that hopefully will be better than any Wam show done in the past. I'm looking to couple this with a retail event at the hotel next door. March will not be possible so I am planning for September and vaccine and Covid willing it should be a bonanza show. Dates TBC as soon as I fix them which should be during the next week or so.
Any chance of an update Peter as several audio related events are/are being scheduled for the September/October period, and I and others will not want to commit to anything until the BIG ONE is announced?
