So, a wargame show. Person to person. Trade stands. Display Games. Early morning start. That sort of thing.
Yes. We went to Partizan on Sunday. Phil & I were joined by Chris K, and we all managed to fit in the car, together with the Northampton model, 6mm Edgcote and the 1460 game which we didn't have room for when we got there*. This was Chris' first trip out with us to a show, for a variety of reasons. He used to own a shop, so he worked most weekends, and often he'd give Phil a list of things he'd like to have - normally the odd sort of stuff you need for WW2 Operational Wargames - so it was nice for him to be able to hunt them out for himself.

*The organisers had altered the shape of the History Zone slightly, to widen the walk way. We moved some stuff around, but didn't discover until tidy up that one of our tables was on the other side of the area, and remained empty all day.
