Sunday saw the Grimsby Wargames Society proudly set sail and steer a course for Newark and "the Other Partizan" wargames show. This would be the second show hosted by the Irregulars at the Newark showground - their new venue. The first had been almost universally well received with the venue being light and airy, albeit without the character of Kelham. That last show had, I understand, a significant increase in attendance and this, the other, show would be a test given that numbers were usually down for the second show.
The organisers should be congratulated though because it was busy. Very busy. All day. The last visitor to our game was around just thirty minutes before the official end of the show. I'm also led to believe that attendance was up again against expectations.
Indeed at one point I was asking the players to slow down because the table was becoming denuded with usable ships.
Finally thanks to all those who came along and spent a little time listening to me blather.
I didn't get much opportunity to do anything other than spend my day at the stand and a very brief walk round. however, from what I saw the games were all of a very high standard and well presented. It looked to be a really good show if you were a visitor with much to see and get involved in.
