my thoughts from the weekend
Posted 29 August 2012 - 02:10 AM
we had another weekend with the new Photo ops and the photo lab worked 100% we had one hick up when we had the wrong lens on one of the cameras we used but this was fixed as soon as we found out , it was a little mess up but was soon fixed and everyone got a good photo when we found out so all was good at the end of the day .
we tested out and pushed this new system and its held up with out any issues on speed so we are all ready.
as for the show its self numbers were a little up on last year maybe only 200 or so but thats fine thank you for all the people that came and spouted the show like you do every year.
the dealers did very well and we had a few more than last year and only has about 4 spear in the hall and 99% rebooked for next year .
as for the guests i think they all were really great and cool and wanted to be there and hang out with the fans which is really nice .
for next year we plan to have a bit more variety of guests and we will try to get the same amount on each day and also a few more so we can do more talks .
as for the auction this is very popular for this show and we will see if we can find a few more cool items to offer you all next year as this really seems to be very popular .
over all this event covered itself and is going the right way and we will be back on August 24TH & 25TH 2013
i know myself and all the crew had a great time with you all at the show and really enjoy seeing you all and we also get to hang out with so many more of our Scottish crew which is also a lot of fun thanks to everyone that attended and also to everyone that helped make this event happened and also all the fans that help get the word out by asking for flyers and getting them out into the shows it really helped thanks
so see you all there

A nice varied guest list, with both days getting the same number of "that day only" is really going to make next year extra special, and i can't wait for it!

As I said in another post, I had a great time as always. I did not understand any of the negativity beforehand, especially from people who were always very supportive of this events. The stalls were more less the same as always, the number of guests was similar and it apparently was even slightly busier than last year as well. Like Jason said, the guests seemed to be happy to be there as well. I met 7 guests (a Glasgow record for me) and all of them were really nice and chatty.
I agreed that the auctions seemed to be popular, although I was slightly annoyed that the Gil Gerard/Erin Gray signed Buck Rogers pic that I paid £25 for on Saturday went for only £15 on Sunday

Cant wait for next year,
Haha, Well done :-) But, as you said, I thought £25 was good value as well for these legends!

If you guys know you will get hot, then maybe you need to look at bringing your own crate or two of water?
But saying this, if you find yourself in the same situation again please talk to a Pit Boss (crew in red) and explain the situation and I'm sure we can help. We'd not want someone passing out due to having no water, when we have some.
