I don't think it has sunk in yet but my bear is on the BBAA nomination list... I did a wee dance too anne-marie :dance: Congratulations to everyone else too. Will I see any of you at Hove? Being my first awards ceremony I'm a wee bit nervous. I will also post a pickie later.
Bear hugs, Claire
congratulations claire, :dance: i'm really nervous its my first time too,it does take a while to sink in,i'm going to hove,but i dont have a stall,so i'll be popping in and out and maybe spend a couple of hours having a wander about hove or brighton,get some fish and chips,be nice in the rain!
do post a pic,i'd love to see your bear[s]
Congratulations Claire! :hug:
It's my first time too so I'm a bit nervous aswell... I also have my first stall so I'm frantically trying to get everything ready although, to be honest, I don't know if what I'm doing is right??!! Do you have a stall?
Try not to worry, it'll be lovely to put names to faces when we all meet up next weekend. I'm not looking forward to leaving home at 4am though!
Love & Hugs,
Congratulations Claire. I can't wait to go either!
It's my first time being nominated in these awards too. I have never been to Brighton or Hove so I decided not to book a stall and have a wander around instead. We go down there on Saturday and come home on Monday.
I look forward to seeing everyone there.
Big congratulations Claire! I know how you are feeling as this will be my first time too and I have no idea what we have to do or when we have to get there.
Does anyone know???
So enjoy your day and good luck with your nomination. Look forward to meeting you amidst all the bears!
hi claire,marilyn and kat,from what i know we can arrive from 8 am[yikes] to start setting up ready for the start of the show at 10am,i dont have a stall to set up,only my nominated bears,so i plan to get there for about 9am,this info was in the stuff i received with the application forms by download,so i assume it's correct
hope this helps
We did get a letter last year advising a time when we needed to display our nominated pieces by - might still be time to receive one yet ??
I know they have to stay in place until 4pm . I think it was 10 am they had to be in the (separate) judging room ... which ties in with the
"doors opening" . I'll probably try and get there for 9.30 am .
Mini Hugs , Ruth
(Also ; Congrat's Claire ! :clap: )
I too received my nomination 2 weeks ago and have shipped my bear piece off to Wendy at Wendy's World Fairs. If you haven't heard back from her, please try again. Shes probably busy organizing everything, she has always looked after my bears for me in the past. I'm sure she has all the info...
Good luck in Hove and Do take pictures!!!!
I have a stall & Wendy Sent a letter out informing that we can be there to set up as early as 7.30am!! The show is open from 10am - 4pm so I'm assuming the bears will need to be there during that time for judging? I'm sure it'll all become clear once we arrive?
I'm leaving home at 4am so I can't really go much earlier!! I'll be the one with the matchsticks in place to keep my eyes open lolling around behind my stall trying to stay awake!! Probably best not to come after 3.00 as I'll be under the stall catching up on my sleep!! :crackup:
So looking forward to meeting you all... Please come up & say "hello" if you can & I don't see you first? I'm on the first floor...
Julia xxx :hug:
Thanks everyone. It's great to know that I'm not the only newbie. Sandra, I don't have a stall either and my bear and I are probably going to be getting there on public transport... hope I can get there in time! Where do I put my bear... is there a table for them or something? look forward to meeting those who can make it :hug: I'll be the one looking a wee bit lost Big hugs, Claire
Last year there was a side room on the ground floor for the judging / viewing by the public .
Just ask the people on the desk as you enter the building . By the way there is a multi-storey car park
right opposite the Town Hall in Hove . The fair itself was on the 1st floor in one room .
Hope this helps
Thanks Ruth you have been very helpful :o) Sandra and Marilyn I'll keep my eye out for you other lost wanderers that face definitely fits me Julia, I will come and see you at your stall... wow, how exciting :clap: I'm sure you will do really well. Kat will see you & any other TT's too who can make it. When I get back will share all the news... and photos with everyone. Thanks for all the support
Big hugs, Claire
Maria... you need to get organized and come join us next year! Sorry you can't make it
