Lee, it's only the second time I attended the Get Together 9,5 so I can only compare with last year and I found that 2015 was better, not only because there were more films and material but also because the 9,5 amateur films competition came back (it had to be cancelled last year due to a lack of enough entries).
 -
As last year, I discovered that in Britain the train tickets you buy at the machines have to be used the same day or are not valid anymore, I went to the ticket office to be sure to buy the right thing. Doing that, I was informed that there were works on the underground line I take to go to San Pancras station, so I planned an alternative route. I was ready and was on time at the train station on Sunday to discover (UK is full of surprises...) an iron curtain at the entrance of the train network for Harpenden ! I thought there was a strike but fortunately it was just a form of British humour and the man from the information desk told me to go upstairs (normally you take the train at the level -1), which I did and...nobody asked to see my ticket.

Lee, you insisted that I took this picture :-)

Good old Harry Roy and his band must be shown at all times Dom! [Big Grin]

A good attendance all round and plenty of choice.

You are right Dom it was good and quite brisk at times with some nice kit available. My own prized purchase would have been a new film for my Christmas shows thanks to young Mark Mander.

A great event' unfortunately I could not stay very long. Partly due to buying a Eumig S 932 from the Bring & Buy (a £25 bargain), partly due to other commitments. Lee's photo of it shows me there (red coat, back to camera) looking in the £1 bin.
I also bought a couple of Wombles films from Mark and found a 6v 10w editor bulb on one stand to replace the one that blew last week. I haven't downloaded my photos yet - I'll put some up when I do. I'm looking forwards to next year's event.

Douglas and Paul, it really worthed it !I will do my best to be there next year as well. I'm not only happy for the material that was on sale and for the projections but I was also pleased to see now familiar British ninefivers and other collectors'faces (including members of this forum). That's what a day like that is about. There is something the pictures don't show : the daughters of the late John Ferrari came specially to sell to passionate people (instead of making profit by selling directly to a seller or through EBay) the collection of one of the former President of the Group 9,5. They had displayed pictures of their father on the wall behind the table on which they had the films (and some material). While I was having a look through the films, it was touching to hear people coming to say they knew personnaly John Ferrari and the girls also asked to some people if they knew him. It was absolutely not a question of business there. I was offered by one of the daughters a displayer with samples of different gauges and a pullover with a cine design as a souvenir. I didn't want to picture the corner as it would have been just a part of the day, which was not, it was something very special. Maybe someone took a picture for the British 9,5 magazine as a tribute, but as I never met John Ferrari personnally, I didn't feel I had the right to do that. Those who had the opportunity to go to the projection hall could see a screening of John Ferrari and Roger Spence who was also a former president of the British club.

David, distance is the only reason for which I haven't been there, yet. Blackpool is far away from London by train (keeping in mind that London would not be my starting point) and by plane you have to tell the company in advance the number of pieces luggage you will have and their weight, which is impossible as you don't know what you will buy at such event. Failing to do that pushes the prices of the cost of the flight to unreasonnable costs, as you have also to book the train ticket from the airport to the city, which is a kind of lottery as it is not unusual for planes to have delays. although it will not be this year, I still hope to be able to make it at least once.

Yes a great event and a lovely venue. I'm so glad I met John Ferrari, he was lovely unassuming man and a great authority of all things cine, especially 9.5.
Harpenden is always a well attended friendly get together and I look forward to going again this year. So many keen and knowledgeable people all in one room.
The refreshments are excellent and not expensive. If you've never been before its well worth the trip.
