Moaning Re: Classic car Show / Classic car sale - RDS Dublin

Well some classic car show that was. Im just back from Dublin livid because I was up early today all set for the car show loaded up my GT Junior which was sparkling and a half an hour before I arrive at the RDS I get a phone call to say that the show is cancelled It seems that the RDS decided at the last minute that the organisers of the show had no insurance cover and locked the gates on hoardes of people who had come from all over to display their cars Its lucky I was not stranded outside the gate or I dont know what I would have done How can something like this happen - the organisers assured me that they did have insurance cover and intend to take legal action against the RDS over it
I blame the RDS why not check the insurance position BEFORE there are hundreds of people waiting to have their cars loaded up for display Shoddy Shoddy work I cant wait for Monday as all the phones at the RDS office will be red hot.

I turned up at the RDS yesterday for the show to be told it was cancelled. I was less than impressed.

Sorry to hear you went to so much effort to get up for the show.

So did either of you get a satisfactory explanation for what happened? Alfaguy, I assumed that you've burned up their phonewires already.

Well as usual my intentions had to be postponed due to mayhem on the work front. A little old lady tragically walked under an articulated lorry today so sorting out that horrific mess was how I spent my day.

Perhaps tommorrow (Dec 7th) I will ring to see what they say.

I phoned the RDS up today and the management (customer relations guy) said he would prefer to make no comment on it other than it was regretful it could not go on but that it would have been wrong to let it go on?
Obviously major litigation is in the offing over it. However the poor pundits like me are likely to see nothing for our inconvenience and dissapointment
