First, a big thanks to David Guest for those great moments.

Shorty had to be on the first picture that was taken before the Friday's night film show. Shorty is between Nigel and Keith.

 -

The second 16 mm projector used for the show.

 -

I don't know how it's called in English, the "automatic accordeon" gave music to the audience before the projection starts.

 -

That's what I call a screen…

 -

The first film was a documentary about the British artist George Formby and the feature was Octopussy.

Thank you, Steven

I love annonces like this
[Wink]

 -

The show was super 8 and 16 mm. When a film in one gauge ended, another in the other gauge started. There has been only a 35 minutes lunch break.

 -

The films projected.

 -

Shorty was in the audience.

 -

I could buy the 2017 dvd.

Hello Heidi. I will watch it on Wednesday night. I have no doubts I will appreciate it.

This inviting board speaks for itself…

 -

The prices for the raffle dispayed.

 -

They were various and numerous.

 -

Small and big [Big Grin]

 -

Shorty with David Watson who is deeply involved with the raffle. The system is that when you have a winning number, you can go to the table and choose the price you wish. So, of course, if you're the first one to win you have the more choice.

 -

Shorty (no we didn't kidnap him but I understand he has had no access to Internet in Blackpool) and Bob, one of the talented projectionists.

Is this the first time that anyone has seen Joe in a tie and jacket? [Big Grin]
Looks like he had a great time.
And who the heck are Clark and McCullough? [Big Grin]

[Big Grin]

Adrian kept asking questions for the quizz all the dinner long. Last years, it was a terrible moment for me since I usually find no (or almost no) answer. This time, I have been very lucky : a gentleman who hadn't booked for the dinner showed up at the last minute. I generousely offered him my answer sheet so I could relax. I have one full year to think about another trick for 2019
[Big Grin]

 -

David Guest thanked everyone and of course everyone thanked him.

 -

One of the 5 Danish enthusiasts who travelled to Blackpool !

 -

After the dinner, a super 8 projection. Simon brought a film very recently shot with the new Ektachrome film. The lucky audience could see the good result. Kodak brought without any doubt a good stock on the market.

 -

After Simon's film, Bob showed a mixed of films mounted ond a 360 mt/1200 ft spool. After that, everybody went to sleep to be ready for the many activities to come on the Sunday.

David Guest said he would have plenty of 16 mm features to sell. Well, see by yourself…

 -

 -

 -

There was another large display of films I couldn't picture as there were many people looking throug the piles when I was taking the photos.

David really did a great job !

 -

The dvd of the 2017 edition has been projected during the day.

Indeed, Greg, it was a schock to hear that.

The famous auction (the composition is not top, I have another one better but sadly not sharp, so it's just to give an idea…)

 -

The last picture, taken at the end of the day [Big Grin]

 -

Again, I hope other pictures will be posted, I was not the only one with a camera [Wink]

More to come...

It's a pleasure, David.
Luigi, I'm not photogenic (and, by the way, you never posted any picture of yourself on the forum [Big Grin] )
Paul, I will do anything I can to come again next year. It's a so fantastic event !

Here are other pictures taken by David Watson :
