It’s a chance to meet other people,
shop, see new items, shop, demo games, shop and generally mooch around having fun. Oh and did I mention Shop.
Occasionally there are some other strange
things like painting competitions going on a shows but we don’t pay much attention to them do we? (Yeah right)
Normally I go to as many of these I can
get to, but in the North of England there aren’t as many as in America. Which is just as well for my bank balance.
On Sunday 25th July I attended
the Ceasefire Show, which was right beside the Trafford Centre in the George C Carnell Sports Centre. As
always my friend Paul and I attended and managed to hook up with another member from Coolminiornot (Greymane. Who’s
not going to forgive me for influencing him to spend so much. Sorry.)
We managed to see a few friendly faces
we know and made a couple more at the trade stands. Stupidly I didn’t pack the spare camera battery so I only managed
to get a handful of photos before it gave up the ghost. D’OH
So if you do find out about a show I’d
seriously recommend going, they are always fun and 99.9% of the people there are friendly. There’s always one grumpy
old beggar but I can’t always help being like that!
