They were made as a reward for crowdfunders

Ah, not been in pre 97 for a while haha! I took the trip down for a short break in a poorly car mostly for this. Was good, interesting stuff, but had no cash to spend, and much of the roadie stuff didnt excite as it should. Love the new builders room, and ted James stand and hobo amongst others. Will share pics when I CBA.
Great org, good catering. Glad I went but I too find crowds a faff, pity the show can't spread out a little like a motor show.

i left about midday on saturday, i really hate crowds like that, i get claustrophobic, the friday night preview was better, not particularly crowded and beer on tap with a very relaxed feel unlike the hecticness of saturday


I feel for you, the crowds were crazy at times.

Yep it was a bit busy Saturday, bearable. Happy though I think the Organisers did the best they could, the feel of the thing was good, if that could translate to a slightly bigger venue then brill!

Interesting story:
