Today, we went to the excellent Battleground show at Stockton Upon Tees.
It was a very good show and we got to meet loads of old friends (and some new ones!)

If you want to see my, it must be said, rather lengthy report, please go to this link

Looks good, I miss going to the UK show, I now have to put up with Sun, Sand and cold showers.

Does anyone know Steve Whalley (think the surname is spelt correctly). Is ex army and lived in that area.

Good photo report Herky. You caught my back a couple of times.

I was on the Tabletop Sale all morning, sales were very slow but there was a little flurry just before lunch so managed to make some decent sales at last.

I wore a mask all day as I did for the Falkirk show earlier this year where everyone wore a mask. There was a distinct shortage of masks at Battleground barely 10%. Pendraken did ask for masks to be worn but were dependent on public support which was sadly lacking.

Thanks Guys! I went into the show wearing a mask, but when I saw no one else was I gave it up as a bad idea!
I have had (triple!)immunisation and Covid, so am pretty immune and unlikely to carry it. Not sure why others were so lax?
