This is excellent news! I sincerely hope collectors will give it their full support, because that would be the perfect way to pay tribute to all that David Guest did to make it a great event from 2011 onwards. It clearly meant a great deal to David that the weekend should continue, so let's do our best to help make it a great success.

Very well said Adrian.

If anyone is thinking of writing reasons or excuses why they won't be coming (which I remember David hating) please spare us from reading them. Even if you have to visit your Aunt Mary that day, we don't need to read about it!

No excuse at all for UK collectors! Our friend Joe 'Shorty' Caruso ventured to Blackpool all the way from the USA!

I totally agree Paul.

David told the tale of someone living five minutes away from the venue who said he could not make it! Shopping can be done any day, lawns can be cut any day, but Blackpool only happens once!

Thanks, Paul. I can only encourage everyone to try to attend UK conventions. Very well organized, friendly people, usually projections and of course films and material to look at and to bring home [Big Grin]
