I think it will be Western run by uncle Rob.  Probably Indians and cavalry.  Although that does send a "game for kids" type message?

Is there anything wrong with a "game for [big] kids"? :)

Had  a young chap at a recent historical show, brought along by his dad. Had his sandwiches out after 6 minutes. Then some D6 piles......

At Comic con 6 young people played. All were attentive, bright and engaged.  Difficult to know what to expect?

Soldiers and Indians, shouldn't it be native americans?

I think the prices charges for entry may influence the quality of the potential players.

Just need to make way for the rucksack bearers!!

Thanks for the DLR heads up. Is it marathon weekend this year (usually, but not always, is)?

UPDATE: Strike is for the weekend 20-23rd April, so weekend after Salute. The marathon is also that weekend (20-23) so hopefully DLR *might* be a little more civilised. :-)

Don't say it out loud, it'll all go base over apex if you do.

Enjoy HP. Going in August. Trying to get tickets was one of the most stressful things I've ever done.

Well less than one week to go to get your orders in for Salute 2018.

Harry Potter v Salute, costs similar but very different returns!

Hope you enjoy HP Simon, I'm sure Salute would get more votes though!

Quite... Driving 4 excited children to HP and back vs. a quiet train journey up to Salute...

But thanks - will do my best.

DLR working fine today, no marathon hordes to contend with 😁, Custom House for ExCel is open (unlike last year) although Prince Regent is actually a better station and gives easier access.

Enjoy Salute everybody (and safe journeys)

Hope that all who went had an enjoyable day out, and haven't made the lead or MDF pile too much bigger!!
