Didn't get to Salute this year - we usually sort it with Salute on the Saturday, watch the London Marathon on Sunday - this year they were a week apart.
So, new venue on the Newark Showground. How did that compare? Bigger, easier to find your way around, more light, bit less atmosphere. Worked well. Actually, didn't start well - the Partizan website was down yesterday which didn't help. We arrived about 25 minutes after the start expecting to get straight in - no way, only one person selling tickets so still a long queue and 15 minute wait to get in. Need more people selling tickets!
Another issue, around 2ish the fire alarms went off and most people just ignored them. OK, it was reasonably obvious that there was no real danger - after a while someone went round saying it was a false alarm and there were loud cheers when the alarms went off again a few minutes later. But really, if there had been a fire...
At the moment, I'm looking at sorting out buildings. This has had an obvious bearing on the photos I took. Mainly of terrain. Not so much of figures. Exceptions will always include elephants, so they're there (didn't chek who did any stands - elephants/Ancients Simon Miller?). Another exception was a game involving figures made from clothes pegs - seemed to impress my wife Sandra.
