IWA will not have a separate National festival in 2014. Here is the news release https://www.waterways.org.uk/news_campaigns/bulletins/iwa_bulletin_midoctober_2013#festival
Instead they will support the Stratford River Festival and put on their own cavalcades first at beginning of May 3-5th Canalway cavalcade at Little venice https://www.waterways.org.uk/events_festivals/canalway_cavalcade_2014/canalway_cavalcade_2014; then National Trailboat May 24-26 in Devon https://www.waterways.org.uk/events_festivals/national_trailboat_festival_2014/iwa_trailboat_festival_2014
Both the May dates should be better propagation than July. So my suggestion is that we try to get stations set up at any Waterways events to act as a meeting point for supporters and obviously to advertise when these stations are on the air. I suggest we still have an on the air weekend May 3-5 as it is bank holiday.
Let me know your views please!
On a separate note I plan to advertise BiWota in a Radcom article. I know a number of you put on stations this year. If you have any stories or photos we can wind into the article please send them to me.
