Hi barry, dave here in reply to question, blackpool was great the new hotel,the four star Hilton was excellent the rooms and food were the best ever.The Convention Dinner Hosted by Adrian was again a great success with best meal at any past convention dinner,a good film quiz,,again won by Peter Wilson some very nice prizes in the raffle and the evening rounded off with a film show this for the first time in 16mm by Jim Cecil. The convention on the Sunday was well attended and had a good number of dealers present the auction I think was better than last years. Some entertaining films in both super8 and 9.5 were shown in a very comfortable cinema room.. the convention was an improvement from last years, Every one I spoke to enjoyed it and would return next year for the convention and the dinner. I can tell you now that the 2014 dinner and convention will be held again at this great new venue the Hilton Hotel.
I took many photos and if I can work out how to post them on the forum (I,am new to computers) I will.
