I thoroughly enjoyed my day with some very commendable exhibits. I found a few exhibits a little long cast, whilst they need some "engine" room to cover the ground well when working, this does not need to be overdone. My grateful thanks go to my stewards for keeping everything running smoothly and also to the exhibitors for their entries.
