Tenting Tonight

Or Partizan in the Park. I must admit to being a tad sceptical of the alternative arrangements, but excited at the same time and determined to go, given Laurence and Richards sterling efforts to keep the show on the road, it would have been so much easier for them to cancel, well done guys. Not sure about the parking situation we set off earlier than we normally would getting there around 9.20, we took advantage of being earlier to get a drink and a very passable bacon bap from the pavilion and sat down in the sun chatting and watching the queue form until it reached our table, this shortened rapidly once the event opened. A brilliant day out and I for one would have enjoyed it just as much if it had been p'ing down, I think, anyway it didn't, a case of fortune favours the brave?

 The biggest plus in my book was been able to see the rather splendid games in the light, it did get a tad close at times but I think that can also be said of the hall when the weather is as warm as yesterdays.
Roll on September and back to the gloom of the hall ;-) Anyway below are some rather poorly composed pics of the games, which were a lot better than my pics might give the impression of.

Apologies to the other fine purveyors of the games that I did not have chance to photograph#



  1. Great pictures, Phil! And, with captions too, I'm impressed!

  2. Greate pictures, thanks for sharing !

    1. You are most welcome, it was great to have some decent light to take pics in for a change.

  3. I've said it once and I'll say it again some excellent games at that show. I must go one year.

    1. Not the easiest place to get to, specially if you are coming from the west or east but well worth the effort.

  4. Thanks for the photos. It looks it was very good show.
