Was a combined effort from all involved mate, thanks to everyone who was able to make it out there, was a great weekend.
So good that I'm now having to think real hard about my involvement, maybe a bit of a back seat more than a full exit, watch this space.
I've got to go to the AiC debrief meeting in a few weeks, I'll get the feedback from the rest of the committee and let everyone know what's happening then.
Thanks again to everyone who made it out there, I've got to give a special shout out to Steve and Caroline from Bay Hobbies who went above and beyond duty to get to the event after losing most of their shop to to fire damage on Wednesday, they did some fantastic deals on smoke damaged kits. Watch this space for news about their eventual re-opening.
Also got to give a mention to poor old Dave from Mighty Ape, he came all the way down from JAFFA town setup his stall and then had to pack it all back up and fly back to Auckland to be with his wife and father in law who had a heart attack.
Was good to see a couple of new vendors, they didn't make any money but are keen to come back as it's all about the social networking and getting the brand out there.

Good work by all. I have heard from other people on Fb and elsewhere that they thought there were less models on display but I think it wasn't helped by having a much larger area to display than other years. Still some great models there by the looks though.

In Soviet Russia, Iron Curtain GB builds you!

People look at me funny when I say I own "Fifty shades of Grey". FS36118, FS36270, FS36375.....

We had less models on the table because certain people bitched and moaned because they felt it unfair that we were allowing previous AIC winners to enter the IPMS Nats.
So we conceded and a huge number of potential models from previous years didn't get to the tables (and not just my stuff lol) then the main detractors didn't even bother to turn up, way to go.
It was still a good weekend overall.

Thanks for posting the pix. It was great to finally meet some of the members here especially G1, Ian and Craig. It was also a very helpful day out with Gavin and Mike at the AC Models table giving me lots of valuable advise on figure painting. Beautiful location and a stunning day, and well worth the trip. Look forward to next years event.
