Carefull Neville, judging by your earlier post your wagon looks like its going to be over length anyway - don`t want to end up overweight as well?? - the Sharma may just tip the balance :wink:

Chris,

Leave the harbour and head up the dual carriageway towards Belfast for about 1.5mile, go past Ford car showroom, take next road right (A36) for Ballymena, keep on that road for about 17 miles and your in Ballymena, the show should be signposted from the main roundabout as you enter Ballymena. 45 mins should take you up from Larne.
Darren.

I hope to go up to ballymena friday and saturday. It will be good to put faces to names. The last tractor will be of particular interest. Any chance of a memeber gettin close enough for a pic with the old girl or will it have an electric fence and snipers around it. Hope the weather holds out and use all enjoy your time here.

thanks chap!

on the subject of the last tractor, the chairman Peter Murray thought that a raffle at the show to drive the old girl if there's a parade to raise money for a local charity would be a good idea???what do you think?? let us know the preferred charity and we'll have a bash.....

Chris either myself or Darren will meet you all somewere coming into Ballymena, the Foden cant be the easiest turned! It is reasonably simple from the the harbour to Ballymena. But a wrong turn in the town and you could be in a Mc Donalds drive thru in the Foden! Its famous for having the most roundabouts in NI. I do like your raffle idea there is usually a parade on the sat. So far the forecast is giving good Fri and Sat. Darwin

David, the prototype 1690 is the first 1690 built and disguised as a 1412 for field tests to see how it would perform before production began, It is still a working tractor.

To the Meltham men, Hope you all arrived home safely last nite. It was certainly a very memorable weekend for everyone. Again I would like to thank you all for coming,giving up your own time and money to do so. You all have a great commitment towards the club. Joanne and myself would also like to thank you for the pleasure of driving the last tractor in the parade. Hope you enjoyed the trip. Darwin

chaps....


sorry about the radio silence since Sunday, but AOL only just untangled the broadband meltdown that happened when we were in Ballymena..

thanks for your hospitality... I had a blast! dancing like a pornstar again...oh oh!

drove Nevilles 1690...stroked Sam Kennedy's collection, had a lovely tea courtesy of Mrs Kennedy, put names to faces and saw a wider variety of £20 notes than I ever thought possible....oh and soda bread! game on...


Darwin, Jo and DC.... looking forward to leading you astray at the dinner this time.... :wink: :D

Glad the 1594 was popular, the old 1412/1690 and Bobs 'bus'turned a few heads as well....
