I found the event quite surreal really... Personal circumstances had changed back and forth in the preceding two weeks and even the evening before as originally I had intended to take a table myself. I arranged to meet a friend prior to the event to swap some machines and parts, so the Derby location was excellent as midway and central for both of us.
Many thanks to all involved, as I got a few bits to complete or upgrade a few of my own machines and also bought a few award cards I'm sure I'll probably need sometime in the future, but didn't buy maybe as wide a selection of items as expected. Maybe just too much to take in.
Anyway very happy with the selective bits I bought, although like BP I left my item in a bag on a table when someone asked me a question on another item and forgot to pick it up again! So my Hitop 4 reeler is still missing an award card. It's all swings and roundabouts though!
Many thanks again for the opportunity, much appreciated.
