SELWG 2021

 


Last Sunday, 4 Rejects went on our first tour of a Wargame show in 20 months. Richard, Postie, Lee and myself drove to Lee Valley Athletics Centre in Edmonton for the 
SELWG show.


We got there pretty early but only stood in the queue for around 15 minutes.


Straight in the doors and who do I bump into, Tamsin!


Rob from Reiver looking very stern, perhaps I should have spent more?
Wasn't till I got home I realised that was true, I'd forgotten to buy some Austrian Grenadiers!!!

The queue for lunch. Apparently a Fish n Chip van was hired for lunch, but overnight some bugger nicked it!!!
So a Mexican food and coffee vans were quickly called. Sensibly Richard bought some sandwiches, me Postie and Lee didn't, so we had to stand in line with everyone else.
Note the Mexican in the Mexican queue!

Here's of pic of the well deserved Winners of Best of Show!!


I met Simon from Iron Mitten blog, centre, he made me put the hat on. I did tell him 
I've got a big head!

I was quite impressed with the new venue, lots of open space, with loads of room for more traders next year. I did miss the quirkiness of Crystal Palace I've gotta admit, but not the choline smell. 
I guess it was a difficult decision moving to North London, being the South East London Wargames Club, but If that was the best place available then why the hell not.
Well done guys, great show!
