I had a dry run with most of the terrain last night at the Derby Club as I have nowhere at home to put out the full 12ft, here are a couple of photo's, will be better on Sunday as all the bits and pieces will be on the table.

If you are about on Sunday, please pop buy and say hello, it would be great to put faces to names

Cheers

Mark

Mark's game received huge attention at the show. It was a wonderful sight with great attention to detail and so many lovely little touches. Athlone looked very dramatic and playing 'spot the regiment' was fun.

I thought it was an outstanding display and that amidst a very high quality field.. lots of good games and a nice venue too.

Being a punter was the best experience of the day for me. Being able to walk out at 4.00pm empty handed and having bought nothing was a first!

As I said on the day Mark, your game looked fantastic!
I took loads of photos of your game and Adam Bowes wonderful ECW Donnybrook game, I'll try and get them posted up at some point.

Cheers Dave

just a correction with the acoustics of the new venue- it's Andy Bowes, not Adam! :D

Many thanks for the compliments on the Game- we're expanding it next time, then Scots vs Newcastle's troops next year.

It will be nice to see the pics- the Athlone game caught my eye, but I only managed a brief look, so any images will be pored over! It looked stunning, and great to see WIP shots as well over recent weeks. Well done guys!

The link to my blog as promised yesterday Dave, as well:

Sorry about the name change Andy, the sound did echo a bit in the hall and I am slightly deaf in my left ear. Some might suggest it's from the continual nagging I get from Barry but I'm too polite to suggest such a thing 8-)
I hope you like the pics of your game I posted in the Donnybrook section?

Mark, here is a link to my Photobucket album where you will find another nine pics.
