I am number 4.

Don't you think it is a credit to David Guest that the photo includes people from the UK, Norway, Belgium and USA ?

I'm No.1 in the photo. I'm not aware of 12/15/16/17 being members of this forum, but they were invited to appear due to being four of our five visitors from Norway.

Many thanks to the Forum members who were amongst the 66 who attended the Saturday dinner. I think this was the highest number of the post-Derann era. I must credit Peter Wilson, who compiled the film show, and also won the quiz for the 4th time.

It's difficult to sum up the overall experience, because however enjoyable most of the weekend was, David's announcement after the auction was inevitably a terrible shock. I can't add much to what has already been said, but I salute the extraordinary bravery displayed by David and his family, and their determination to make the event a success, despite dealing with a 'bombshell' that would have overwhelmed many. I expect all the collectors with a great affection for the Blackpool convention will agree that we have every reason to be very grateful to David, for the enormous effort he has put into maintaining and developing the event over the last six years.

What sad, terrible news. Thank you David for all you've done for our hobby. I recall the excitement in 2011 when the announcement was made that the Blackpool convention would continue. Thank you again for keeping it going.
