Hi Gregg,
there was 66 people at the Convention Dinner on Saturday night and I think about 300 plus at the Convention on the sunday.

The dvd (I watched last night) is certainly a great record of what the convention is.

Luigi, this picture was taken on Sunday night (before I, sadly, had to leave to take my coach). It was a kind of buffet. The food at the hotel (where I was not staying but where I ate three time) is excellent. Here is the menu of the Saturday dinner :

Compliments to all the photographers on some excellent photos!

I couldn't guess the overall attendance but I did think it was striking that number present for the auction was the highest I've seen for many years. I recall some fairly sparse crowds not so many years ago, so to see the full rows and extra seats being brought in this year was quite something.

David did mention there was over 300 Super 8 films for the auction so I wonder if that contributed to the high attendance?

Graham - I think it may well have done. And it was striking to see what a high proportion of the films were actually sold, even if often for bargain prices, as that's by no means what always happens in such auctions. In a few cases, three or four copies of a particular Disney 200' appeared, and they all sold. I even wondered if the guy who sells empty 200' spools on eBay for £9.99 might have been there, building up his stocks!

Thanks for that reply Adrian, interesting.

Can anyone tell me what films were shown after the dinner?
