Anyone going from here?

Let's make a concerted effort to meet up this year, even if we all have to wear funny hats or Tshirts.

I'd like to go but It's a lot of money even without teh petrol, food, and all the temptations, so just thinking about it at the moment.

Someone might have spare stockman's ticket for one day.  Depends on how many animals you take.  We have different family members coming to help each day so they all get a turn - there's not much to do so plenty of time to see the show.  You get a one day ticket if you enter a fleece in the comp too......

Will be there all week. Only reason I missed the meet up last year was because it was scheduled for during our judging! Will have more free time earlier in the week this year as our judging is being pushed back to Saturday, with our milking comp on Friday. Therefore will be free on Thursday, and part of Friday.

Oooh, is it that simple Rosemary?

I have a lovely pair of wellies that might be fun to show off  (the sort that lay brown eggs rather than the sort that leak and smell).

It's too late to enter most livestock, but fleece and maybe eggs closing date is sometime in May.

I will be there in the Hebridean sheep bit, every day - they get longer and longer til by Sunday I will be crabbit and tired  ;D.  Our judging is on Fri morning so any other time.....

Probably be there at least one day, not sure which yet. Should we wear something so we can recognise one another. I am too shy to approach people!

Can I enter a duck and not take him or her?  Do you have to go and let them know or just do a no-show?

No you can't enter a duck and do a no-show. It looks like the show has cottoned onto that. You only get your tickets once you have delivered your bird to the poultry tent, normally on Friday evening or Saturday morning.

http://www.royalhighlandshow.org/assets/downloads/POULTRY_Schedule_2011.pdf

"Entry to the showground with birds will be by letter of authority.
Re-admission wristbands, to enable exhibitors access to the show, will be issued by the stewards
when the birds are delivered into their pens - only one wristband will be issued for each exhibitor
number and only if that exhibitor makes five or more entries. Wristband access is only permitted
via the main show entrance gates."


The entries are still open for poultry. Remember, if you enter the poultry, you will only get tickets to admit you on the Saturday/Sunday as those are the days the poultry are exhibited.

In that case I won't bother then.  My memory isn't great but I seem to remember 15 being asked for  either that or the Game Fair.

Not heading to the RHS this year, have chosen to try the Smallholder show down in Wales instead, never been before. We will combine it with a few days holiday too.
Anyone know why the RHS is called "Highland" when it is in Edinburgh?
