With Kempton Park and Tools 2005 fast approaching, how about members wearing a "badge" with "UK Workshop Forum Member" printed onto a sticky adress label and cut out in a circle, simular to the size and shape of the stickers used by the various charity collectors.

Alternatively look at the rogues gallery here:

You seem to be missing - perhaps you need to read this thread also:

No excuse now - you did ask? :shock: :lol:

....and there's me thinking that the recognised ID is a red carnation, and a copy of The Times under the left arm! :lol: :lol:

Cheers,

The new form of identification is the LN tee shirt and lots of bags sporting the LN and LV motif. Failing that just tag along with Philly, cos everyone knows him, he'll even carry you wears pretending there his :D :D :D

I walk right past people I know and still don't recognise them. :oops: The chances of me reading a sticker is practically nil, given that all I see at shows are the backs of about a dozen identically folically-challenged blokes in interchangable fleeces and jeans all between me and the L-Ns. :cry: So maybe if you wore them on the backs of your heads...? :lol:

No, wait. Of course. #-o It should be wristbands! :roll:

Cheers, Alf

You'll have no problem picking me out then, Alf - I'm the one who is not folically-challenged! :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol: :roll:

Maybe, but the 12 blokes who always block my view don't. :lol: Now I'd claim they were following me if a) I was paranoid, and b) they weren't always in front, and therefore can't, by definition, be following me. Instead I'd have to say I was being preceded, which just sounds daft as well as paranoid. So perhaps they lurk about in squads instead, ready to leap into shining-domed action whenever they see me approach a stand... :-k

Okay, now I am getting paranoid... 8-[] :lol:

Funny you should say that; I was fooling about with the Wayback Machine and found this.

I thought it was obvious who are the forum members-the ones wearing anoraks!!!!! :lol: :lol:
O.k., just joking. I think a badge of some description could be a good idea. Or we could get Charley to print off some more of his UK Workshop t-shirts (as modeled by his good self last year :wink: )
As a final measure we could all print off Chas' "rogues gallery" and carry it with us so we know who to avoid :wink: :lol:
Looking forward to Tools 2005,
Philly :D

A member of the forum actually did this for the summer Good Timber show; not a bad idea I thought.

I used a much simpler method of identifying forum members at the Good Timber show, though - I just looked out for the rowdiest element :lol: ! The same technique also worked at the Ledbury auction :) .

My apologies, but Kempton Park and Tools 2005 are in the wrong part of the country for me so I won't be attending.

Just needs "Unwanted" and "$000 reward" printed underneath and you're good to go... :lol:
