Yes I noticed that Dom but all the pictures are there that I wanted so I think its just repeated text I will delete or sort. I would add this isn't the easiest forum to post pictures and if there is a problem going back on the browser deleates everything and have to re-post.

I don't remember that Beaulieu. Maybe it was sold quickly or I was distracted.

Shorty was pushing for us from the UK to go to Cinesea. He provided a film for the Saturday daytime shows, which I later bought from the Bring and Buy.
It was good to see him again.
I'll upload some of my photos tomorrow.

That sounds like him:

-Ten years ago Shorty was pushing for us from the US to go to CineSea.

(Turns out he was right!)

I would be remiss if I didn't thank Adrian Winchester and David Watson for keeping it all together and making sure we're in line, LOL - Listening to these two gentlemen speak on topics and all is indeed worth the pleasure of their companies - Certainly planning towards the next one - Cheers all, Shorty

It's Oliver, a forum member 😀

 -

This is not the first picture I took since it was displayed on the Sunday but it's the first I wanted to post as the Friday night projection which started the event was preceeded by a thougt for David Guest. Of course I haven't known David as well and as long as others have but enough to appreciate him. I first started to get in relation with him as a customer and I have always been satisfayied with what he sold me. He sent me some pictures of organs which seemed to be one of his other interests. When I told David I intented to come to Blackpool, he kindly sent me his phone number and offered to come to pick me up at the station (which of course I declined since I knew he would be very busy with the organization of the convention). Although he had many things to manage, David Always took time to talk to me (and to others). It has been a great sadness when he annouced his illness. The fact that he decided, knowing he was at the end of his days, to keep on with the Blackoopl convention and spend his precious time with and for us tells something about the man. I cannot thanks enough those who made possible the continuation of the event that matters so much for David. I know it's a lot of work ; the North French Cine Fair of Roubaix didn't survive the death of the organizator, which is a shame. From where he is, I'm sure David Guest is happy to see that the 2019 edition of the Blackpool convetion was a complete success.

 -

The Friday night show was a 16 mm one. Shorty is admiring the Siemens projector that belongs to Nigel (the man with the hat).

 -

The lightning and the sound were improved and much appreciated by the audience.

 -

Nigel found those extenders that fit all the Siemens models but are rare since they were expensive when new.

 -

Audience is arriving, Eldorado with John Wayne and Robert Mitchum will be screened soon.

 -

I finally met (forum member) Oliver (from Germany) I heard so much about from (Belgian) forum member Bruno. Very nice friendly guy.

I was very happy to see you again, David. I will of course post your pictures with great pleasure.

 -

I didn't want to miss a minute of this show, neither.

 -

Jim used a 16mm projector and Nigel a super 8 one.

 -

Some of the films showed. As one can guess, since the projection lasts for several hours, a large variety of subjects were shown.

 -

Guess who let that on the table [Big Grin]

Thanks for the name reminder, Dominique, I'm blaming my age for forgetting. Here are some pictures of the main event.
 -
Plenty of 16mm.
 -
And plenty of attendees.
 -
CHC
 -
Considering we were at the Grand Hotel I thought this would have sold early on.
 -
Bob gets ready for a film show with his Elmo GS1200 Xenon.

And by the way the reason for the missing picture in the first post is that the link is not complete Hopefully this will show it

 -
So it was a repeat of part of the link, not a new picture.

The appealing sign of the Saturday night dinner.

 -

I like the plate glued on the projector box.

 -

The box in which the tickets for the raffle are put.

 -

Shorty was very motivated.

Very very...
