No worries, I'll make a note to contact you about that closer to the time.

 Undecided Just been watching a video-thingy from Crisis 2014 (fair enough, a few years too late, but first time I'd seen it!) and just wondered about strapping a camcorder to Leon, setting to record, and as he's walking around the show - checking everything's okay - there'd be a video of the show to show-off later.

I won't suggest the official show photographer do the video, as she's busy all day as it is, and its always a case of Leon never looking very busy on the day  Evil Grin

-- Just made my first 'pick-up at show' order, today, with KRMulticases / Lesley's Bits Box.
Got me name down to play in two games, also.

Can't make it. Please don't feel bad - it's not personal.

I think it would be pretty boring for everyone, just me moving tables, carrying trader stock, checking exit doors and closed, wandering about aimlessly...  Cheesy

She's not here this year unfortunately, so it'll be down to me to do the photo honours this time.

Where the heck was the camera? Attached, strapped, to the base of the tail?

What's a subjunctive?  Undecided Grin (I know now, after googling it!)

Let me in early and I'll photograph everything and everyone, throughout the day! I can even provide my own camera - though you'd need to provide any lights, if wanted?

Quite happy to forego playing games, and my camera is capable of taking well-lit and good images, with a good ability to photograph 'macro' close-ups. Pictures could be emailed, or transferred via USB connection to computer at your unit after the date.

So if you do require a hand, with camera duties, I'm very willing to offer my services.

I think we'll be OK but I'll give you a shout if I find we're short.  Once the doors open at 10am, I should be able to grab 45 minutes or so to have a run around the games.  If you'll be taking pictures anyway, we can always point people towards your blog after the show, more photos is never a bad thing!

Careful, that's just asking for it. You know that someone will say that a passive periphrastic must be used next.
