Salute 2011 was held at the Excel Centre, London Docklands on Saturday the 16th April 2011.
Well, Salute 2011 is over and our lives are getting back to normal. We at the South London Warlords would like to say a big thank you to everyone who came to the show this year - to traders, to the clubs putting on the games, and particularly to you, the visitors.
We hope you had a great time at the show and that you managed to see everything you wanted. We have already started to put up the galleries of pictures on our website ( http://www.salute.co.uk ), on the blog ( http://slwarlords.blogspot.com ) and on Facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/SLWarlords ) - there are pictures of Salute ranging from the building of the show on Friday through to the close of the show on Saturday afternoon, including the games, the painting competition and the awards ceremonies.
So that you can start to plan for next year, the date of Salute 2012 will be the 21st April 2012. There will be much more information online as we get the planning underway.
Again, many thanks,
South London Warlords
