.. the result of overhearing two ladies saying...

You can't beat market research! Looking forward to seeing the pictures!
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

Another change of plan - Walter is now bringing a farm and market garden layout so I have decided to revert to an earlier plan I had to do Hogwarts and Hogsmeade on winter, just to make it different from last time.

Does that mean no sea battle, then, Elaine?

There's a sea battle also Gordon but I may need some help planning that though as Sandy was going to take charge of it.  It will be where the town square or your display was last year.
I thought I'd put Hogwarts where the ark was. James's park will be probably be where the fantasy was and dinosaurs where the summer holiday was. Speaking of which, do you have any photos of that from last year?  I never posted them and much to James'dismay I lost them when my computer broke down.
James may have some music with his display so if you would like to move to where the town square was last year to be a bit further away let me know!

I'll look through my photos, Elaine. 

As regards the music, distance does make the heart grow fonder!

Old joke.

Testy old gentleman to not very accomplished pianist:  Can you play further away from me?

Pianist:  I don't know, but if you'll whistle the tune I'll try to.

Boom! Boom!

I'm sorry about your loss.  :(

For a naval battle I gues there are various options..

Maybe setting it in the pike and shot timeframe could be neat. Spanish galleons against pirates? Or maybe the french or english?
Pirates DID pray on spanish treasure galleons filled with gold after all.
It might allow for some creative uses of shipwreck parts, to help portray a sinking ship with clickies holding on to it as it goes down!

It could potentially also include a port with cannon batteries giving support, and maybe pirates raiding that port as well, or rowboats being used from the harbour to save shipwrecked soldiers.
