TringCon XX - March 2010
Our first event of 2010 saw another record attendance, with 73 people playing games for most of the day. Valerie did the catering again, and her friend Linda actually came back for a second helping. Good girl.
With no personal injuries this time, I was ready and able to handle everything, but even so, many thanks to those who assisted with lifts to and from the station, and clearing up at the end of the day.
The Iain Rennie Hospice at Home donation for the day was £300. Part of that came from some games that Howard Bishop sold, donating the full amount raised to the charity.
This may be the best we can do, as the hall is close to capacity. The limiting factor is the overall space and the number of tables available, not to mention the strain on the caterers. If it was warmer the patio could be opened up for the hardy, or used for the food, freeing up the front room for playing games. Neither option is truly practical, so if the popularity continues to increase we may indeed have to put a cap on attendance for future events.
Here is a selection of what was played throughout the day.
John Harrington - Another cracking con, Gromit. Food was excellent, as always, Will probably continue turning up for the grub when I lose interest in games.
