A few Rejects took that long drive up the A2 and over Dartford Bridge to the Excel centre for our annual trip to Salute! It was a great day and like most at the show I'm bloody knackered!!! I did come back with a large bag of goodies, rather larger than I'd planned as well.
I met up with loads of other Bloggers walking around and at the Blogger Meet-up. I also had a chat with Martin form Warbases, very interesting it was too?? And with Darrell Hindley who forgot about the Blogger meet-up!!
Also had a long chat with Barry Hilton, Gerry and Toggy from the League of Augsberg. Barry announced that the long awaited Irish book for Beneath the Lily Banners will possible be out in June and its gonna be a mega book with loads of scenarios!! Can't wait!! But whatever you do don't mention boats????
I did have a camera malfunction and missed quite a few games so apologies if I missed your game.
Anyway on with the show
Postie had a bit of luck, he pulled a Golden ticket out of his bag and won a bag from KR!!!
