It's been two years since we were treated to this "cracking" show-and it did not disappoint!
Leon and his family did us proud presenting a show full of Traders,Demo. Games,Participation Games,Re-enactors and a welcome return of the "Bring and Buy". Hot food and drinks were available,and the atmosphere from the "off" was tremendous.
As we were setting up our ACW game,Leon came around issuing arm bands and free drinks vouchers-what a star!!
These two shots show us still getting ready,and the hall before any "punters" arrived-lots of room to observe "social distancing"
All set up,just in time as the doors were flung open and the big spenders descended on the traders-it was a "spendfest" led by Paul,Dave,Graham and Brian(and me to a lesser degree!)
This old man appeared asking for any old figures we could give him-bloody cheek!!
Just three of the magnificent games on show-everyone who put on a game deserves a great big thank-you for the effort and enthusiasm shown-long may it continue!
The show is in full swing in this shot,which features the "Bring and Buy",doing a roaring trade.
One final shot of our game being fought a conclusion-Leon and his "team" deserve all the accolades they get for putting on such a magnificent show-we'll be back!!
Hi guys, it was great seeing you again, and congratulations on an excellent display as usual!ReplyDelete
HI Herky-it was good to see so many old and freiendly faces-glad you liked our displayDelete
Glad you had a great day. Can’t believe someone stole some musket balls. Really? Just no need. Sorry I didn’t get, but just as well as we’re a Covid household 😷ReplyDelete
Yes, I couldn't believe that theft(I actually didn't see the musket balls on the display) - or for that matter the chap asking for free figures! - I hope that didn't ruin your day?Delete
Oh hell! keep well-any idea where the dreaded virus was contracted?-keep us informed,Delete
Little one caught it from… somewhere! School is riddled and his Beaver leader has it. And he went to a birthday party at a ‘soft play’. Germ central. He’s now passed it on to big oneDelete
For sale, old lead balls.ReplyDelete
Where do you live again?-Crook isn't it??Delete
Mind youre right John, the last two years havnt been kind to me. Between the chocolate, biscuits and watching hours of mindless tv Im showing my age. Still I think I looked better than you and your posse. Great to see you all and great to have a chat to some sensible people, ie Brian.Thanks again for the figures and I cant wait to rebase them. Who said you were a tight so and so. Oh sorry that was me.ReplyDelete
Robbie,we've been approached by a promoter asking us to audition for a re-make of The Chipendales-or was that the Chipmunks??-good to see you(did I really say that?)-hope you enjoyed the show as much as we did.The figures will need to be repainted to get up to your standard.Delete
Great sounding day; except for the thieving nob who nicked ya musket balls. What a prize tosser.ReplyDelete
Did you cough on the first?
Hi James,good to hear from you-it was a great day,and no amount of "thievery" could spoil it-looking forward to more shows if this bloody virus doesn't spoil everything again!!Delete
