Carronade 2012

Another great show now done and dusted all the liitle Carronade Crew helpers were tuckered out after the days exertions but all enjoyed the day in what proved to be one of the most successful shows yet.

Haven't had the official numbers yet but there seemed to be a few more through the doors by about 1:30pm than last years total, and talking to few bods briefly all the traders and clubs seemed to have had a good day too.

Didn't have a huge amount of time to take in the show in any detail being generally ensconced upstairs with the Painting Competition and Flea Market and generally running about so didn't get much of a chance to speak to most of the people putting on games and such and catch up , but did manage a once round all the games on show and managed to take a few photo's of same and then later on in the afternoon I managed to check out a couple of the traders to pick up a couple of bits I wanted to pick up.

The show was once again attended by about thirty or so clubs local and from further a field who all once again put on a great variety of games, large (some enormous) and small, and again a good number of them participation games so you could try your hand on lots of different styles of gaming. The Fantasy lot up stairs particularly took to this and there was a good take up on a lot of participation gaming there.

The painting competition was attended by approximately the same number of entrants as last year but the Historical Unit category was particularly hotly contested this year, and the Junior and Vehicle categories being down considerably.

Thanks to the Painting Competition judges; Brendan, Mark and Andy for taking time out of their day to do a sterling job on some tough categories, and thanks to the traders for sponsoring the competition with some damn good prizes too.

Didn't get a chance to find out the winners of the best games etc but will do soon, and post the deserving names and games here.

So now all are recovered and the pennies are spent, we'll start to plan next years show and try and improve on things once again, though I can't promise that we will but we'll try.

I'll post a few more photo's real soon for the peeps who couldn't make it to sunny (but chilly) Falkirk for the show, but for now I'm away to play with my ill gotten gains.
