Great weather at the Royal Welsh show may have kept many farmers away making hay and silage however it was still a great success. As usual the gentleman commentator for the fly-fishing and gun dog arena's was his usual inconsiderate self and had only one volume ' BLOODY LOUD'. Thank you to the people who persevered with the conversations and especially the new customers who ordered tractors, forestry and firewood machinery. The Royal Welsh show is still a fantastic show however the shower and toilet facilities on the show ground are totally inadequate for the number of visitors / exhibitors and are now beyond there last legs. It really is time the RWAS stoped pocketing the profit they make and replaced / updated and increased the numbers. Be warned RWAS, people vote with there feet!
