A requiem for Salute 2013

Well, that's Salute over for another year. Thank you to everyone who came to the show; to all the clubs and individuals who put on the games, to all the traders who brought their wares, and most of all to the (provisional count) 5,000 people who came through the door.

As always, it will take us a few days to get our pictures up online, but we'll do our best.

We're now looking at what to do for next year; we have dates booked for the show in 2014 and 2015, and the planning starts with our next committee meeting in a fortnight. Please send us any comments you have on the show - we love it, but we know every year has to be better than the previous one, so tell us what you want!

A friend of mine posted some thoughts on this year's Salute on his blog (http://diceoff.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/salute-2013-preamble-hot-or-not.html) - thought you'd want a read.

Thanks for organising as always. One serious suggestion/comment - bring back "Best Participation" and "Best Demo" categories (and keep "Most Innovative").....You want gamers to be bring their best games to Europe's Biggest wargames show. Also, no disrespect to the winner of "Best Scenery" but what were you looking for - an unfinished board,/pink loft insulation showing? There were plenty of gamers that spent hundreds of hours to build eyecandy that is now all over the web promoting Salute 2013, that will be puzzled by that decision - eg The Oshiro Samurai town, the Steampunk Martian siege, The D-Day Landings table, the Crooked Dice London Zombie board to name but four (none of them mine btw) any of which would have been worthy winners.
