BOYL 2023 Saturday

What a wonderful day, it was raining a lot!, but the event was packed and had such a fantastic atmosphere, and to me was the 10th and best BOYL ever many new faces many old friends appeared and  joined in. the games were full, superb tables and miniatures and fun. 

We had many special guests today but one made my day, the legend that's  John Blanche came as he does but today he arrived with a box of his painted miniatures (hope some one got a picture) after  I told him he could not enter the painting competition  he vanished and i asked where "hes gone!" big Tony a said, I was lost and  looked around and there joining in a huge dark future game sat John, I have never been so infused and it was some thing I wont forget, later I asked him if he was OK he said great and loved  to be playing the game. For me this is what BOYL is people enjoying games and company of fellow enthusiasts.  I took many pictures and on view not many of the gaming tables so if i missed anyone's game forgive me.

The next pictures are the paining competition and Trish Carden joined the Judges, this year was the hardest I have seen to judge, the quality and talent was  just astonishing, I hope the pictures do some justice.

The last group of pictures are people I meet and knew and were great to chat with along with old friends.

I want to thank Mark Stevenson for his kindness in my travels and his  superb friendship and lovely family..

Be safe my friends.
