Salute 2014 - The Pics


First off we have the Bloggers pic pinched from Carl's blog, with a few more names added in!
Apologies if you were eating your dinner!
The Blogger meet up was a great success, and it was great to put faces to names old and new!

There were some great looking games at the show, but like others have said, there were some
not so very good looking games as well!!!
Looking through other bloggers posts, I've noticed I missed out a lot of games, I thought I had most, but there you go.....
Some of the games at the show clearly had what the game was and who the club actually were. I wish everyone did that!!! grrr!
And what was it with the terrible light in that place, my eyes were killing me!
Anyway on with the show...

  6. Red Planet is my favourite. I like to look at the buildings on the tables the most as I don't get to see buildings all together like that in real life. Thanks for the pics Ray!

  32. Nice pics Ray. The lighting was definitely crap - it took my eyes a while to adjust and I think it was why I found myself feeling drained a lot quicker than the last two years.
