    Default LOOK OUT HE's COMING!!

    As the saying goes ~ all good things come to an end.
    In my case ~ all awesome and incredible things come to an end.

    So it's Sunday evening, all games completed, all exhibitors (traders) packed up and gone....
    and so here with some pictures of the last day of the show.

    Dragons are the theme..here is a Balloon Dragon...
    The kids or parents paid a dollar for a kid to pop a balloon last thing in the day...
    all monies went to a kids charity...

    We have the delights of the 'Rucksack Brigade' at many shows, who refuse to
    remove them even when in tight spaces and then forget they are wearing
    them, happily swinging them about knocking people about and never even
    think of others, well perhaps in this case we can forgive the lady in question?

    Approx 750 seats!

    There were at least 8 other gaming areas within the gaming hall...!

    As you walk down the main hall way on the right were a series of gaming pods
    you enter the pod and you are sitting in the cockpit of a walking war machine.
    Those who know Star Wars and the AT~TAK....this takes it to new heights!

    Personally i felt very claustrophobic and couldn't wait to get out of it!

    So after a long week of absolute pleasure, meeting amazing people and
    making new friends, a tad tired, i felt i deserved a little treat?
