Dear Enthusiast,
welcome to Newsletter #3 for the Capel Military Vehicle Show event and you are receiving this email as you have either attended one of the previous Capel Military Vehicle Show events or you have shown an interest in attending this year's event either by way of a direct approach via our web site (http://capel-military-vehicle-show.com/index.html) or through enquiries of someone connected with the show either as an organiser or supporter.
This year's show is to take place in the same location - Temple Lane, Dorking RH5 5HJ . As mentioned in previous Newsletters in addition to the normal array of fascinating military vehicles this year there will be the added attraction of a privately owned Westland Wasp helicopter which will be in attendance and will be performing a display of the agility for which this aircraft was famed as a shipboard anti-submarine helicopter. As with last year we hope to have a CH-47 Chinook helicopter from RAF Odiham in attendance (subject to operational requirements). For those who attended last year the sight of the arrival and departure of this superb piece of aviation engineering was simply stunning. A truly exciting addition to the aircraft attending this year's show will be an RAF Odiham Westland Lnyx multi-purpose helicopter. This aircraft will be attending the show on both days. As previously mentioned there will be two battle re-enactments on both days. In addition to the activities already mentioned there will also be daily re-enactments in the arena, a vehicle see-saw for the brave to test their skills, a small children's fair, an air rifle range, mini tanks, a climbing wall, stalls & trade stands. We will also have a licensed bar, food stalls, evening entertainment together with music. TURNWESTON HELICOPTERS will also be providing pleasure flights over and around the event show ground for those who wish to experience the view from the air.
As of the beginning of June we have 159 military vehicle entrants confirmed and we are expecting in excess of 250 assorted military vehicles. As with last year's programme there will be an arena in which a variety of exciting activities will take place ranging from displays of military vehicles, tank firing, Wasp helicopter display, car crushing as well as the re-enactment of WWII battles we hope that this year will surpass the success of previous years. This year will also include a fire rescue display provided by the County Fire & Rescue. For those who attend the Operation Overlord event 2016 you will not failed to have been impressed by their display which was first rate and illustrated the advanced techniques deployed in rescuing trapped people from motor vehicles invloved in road tarffic incidents. In addition to the excitement of the arena activity there will be a number of stalls, food and beverage outlets for you to visit throughout the two days. There is also a licensed bar selling a wide range of local ales. On the Saturday evening there is live music and a singing trio providing a broad range of entertainment. All in all there is something for all the family so come and enjoy what is fast becoming one of the leading military vehicle events in the south east of England.
For those of you who yet to register their attendance as an exhibitor or a trader please visit our website at http://capel-military-vehicle-show.com/index.html and access the Exhibitors BCC tab. Alternatively please email entryform@capel-military-vehicle-show.com.
Last but not least there will also be a tombola stall hosting a wide variety of exciting prizes.
We look forward to meeting with at this year's event. Remember if you have attended previous Capel Military Vehicle Show events be sure to spread the word amongst your friends.
Best wishes to all - the Capel Military Vehicle Show 2016.
