It was down to the Derby show this weekend where the club was putting on a Battle for Trafalgar Square demo game. yself and Mick went down on Friday afternoon checked in to our hotel and went for some food with the other club members who had managed to make it down. We got to the venue on Saturday morning at about 9 o'clock to help set the game up. Having not seen the game before i was really impressed, it seemed to get a lot of good reviews.
We then went for the annual Indians with the lads from Pendraken and Colonel bills and Ainsty and after a sizable quantity of alcohol had been drunk it was back to the hotel to sleep it off.The Sunday was a little quieter but the game got alot of attention.We were packed up and away by half past three and home for about half six.
The venue had improved from last year, the toilets had been done out as had the cafeteria but the noise of the racetrack is still pretty annoying and it isn't particularly warm. It is improving but i still favour the university.
There was a good mix of traders and some good looking games and from what I've heard most of the traders had relatively good takings.
Anyway onto the pictures. I tried to get as many of the games photographed as i could.
