Anyone going?
Daft question I suppose as it is mostly yanks on here these days.
I probably will.
You've all decided against it?
Makes sense.

So, that's a no then?
I went today.
Okay, Bit quiet.
Better than Sunday last year.
Waragmers larger than last year. Whiter than last year - one afro-caribbean guy this year.
Huzzah for middle England.
Very pleasant though.
One very good looking ACW demo game several nice participation games - liked the Daleks.
As a show felt much less vibrant than Devizes c30 years ago in the Corn Exchange. That may be my age or wargaming in general or Devizes in particular or the venue. Or my memory.
Worth a trip tomorrow though if you are travelling c 60 miles or so.

Went yesterday (Saturday)

OK Show. Was quiet.

Why do they have the Bring n Buy upstairs, it is so hot up-there, and the mix of sweaty wargamers and heat is not good!

Yes, the Corn Exchange Attacks from days gone by had a different buzz about them, crowded, not much room, but very enjoyable
