I have paid for sapperfest by cheque and I was wondering if we receive a ticket or do you just give your name on the gate as when I sent the cheque I didn't give any address or email address.As its my first sapperfest I could do with a little Info if possible. If its easier to email me my address is royheaton06@aol.com

No youdont recieve a ticket, you name will be on a master list at the admin tent. Once you have got in, then look for the 143 harbour area where there will be about 20 from 143 plant sqn

Having bumped into an old friend not seen since 1989 , after a catch up chat I was told to buy a ticket for next years event, which I have done. How and when will I know if I am accepted and where is it to be held? Short but comprehensive service record now on the Sapper site.
In anticipation Brummie Edwards
