I am just back from 3 weeks on holiday in Spain so this year I did not get to the show which I organise.By all accounts the show went well in my absence. Numbers thru the door were slightly up at approx 700. I decided to use some space in the reception area for more trade stands and we allowed some traders associated with displays and this gave us 6 additional traders for a total of 40.
Quality of items on the B&B I am told were better this year and speaking to some members of the Falkirk club last night they certainly picked up some amazing bargains.
The award for best diplay went to Dave Imrie's The Eagle roman skirmish game and RAF Leuchar's superb carrier attack game won the best Public Participation award.
Seems that people enjoyed the day and the feedback from traders has been relatively positive. Next year’s show will be on Saturday 2nd August at the same venue.
