I went today, and had a pleasant experience.
Although not as good as the Birmingham venue, the free parking outside does compensate.
It really is a maze inside, in fact I only found the dealer room by chance (and this isn't my first time!).
I felt a bit sorry for Johnny Johnson too. He seemed completely isolated.
The checking of wristbands was non existent. After the ease to get in free last time, this really should have been tightened.
Whilst I loved the relaxed style of the event. Turn out seemed generally very low. Other than the space guys which provided a small buzz around the place, the rest looked very quiet.
The general feel of the event did feel so much more friendlier, at Birmingham with the 'security' it often feels more about ego's and power trips. But the two ladies on Edgar's stand couldn't have been more friendly, personable, or helpful. The lady on the front desk was also warm and welcoming.
I was done in a few minutes. I have no idea what you guys do over the whole weekend. Maybe you were all at the bar?.
I can't believe its another 12 months until the next one.
I'm pleased with my autographs. Cheers Dave.
