Salute 2019 convention report

IMG_9539

So another Salute went by.  Altogether it was a grand show. Lots of traders , very many very well presented games like the one above wich got the best of show award. But it seemed to be a little bit less crowded then in the years before. What ever the reason for this it is still a show worth going to! I met a lot of old friends wich in itself is a good reason to go just to catch up on the social side of the hobby.

Here are about 250 pictures I took during the day in no special order :

If you have been there as well I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did . Role on Salute 2020

The Salute 2018 Photoreport

So another Salute is gone by and I took a lot of photos like every year. The show was like the years before very well organized and despite the mass of people there wasn’t a very  long delay to get in. The games were very well presented and the selection of traders was outstanding. But there is one point I have to criticize , the lighting . When you got into the  Salute venue it was very dark. So dark that it was sometimes difficult to take decent pictures ( as you sadly will se below). There could be more light and in the venue next door ( a wedding convention ) it was very different , much more light !

But without further ado here are the pictures:

A blood and plunder game:

 

Here you can see how dark it was:
