Aaah Eeeh Aaah Eeeh Aaah... Wah Wah Wah.....
(The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
) or some might say... Bob, Ade and Barry at Partizan although which is which I will leave to you
I very much enjoyed our visit to 1st Partizan yesterday at which we demo-ed Walcourt 1689
... photos in the Gallery later today... but that was the quietest I have ever seen the mighty Newark show in 17 years of attendance (roughly 30 visits). Missing traders, Missing clubs, missing punters... By 3pm there was virtually no one but the exhibitors and traders left which is almost unheard of. Even in the morning the usual 10-1pm rugby scrum was absent. Having talked to a few people about it, near collosion with Triples at Sheffield was blamed but those who had been there said Sheffield was very poorly attended also, so could iut really have been that?
Was the country in mourning for Man Utd?
.. doen't think so because in the pub we ate in on the previous night all the English fellas were shouting for Barcelona
United have turned into that brand that everyone who doesn't support them loves to hate. Same as rock groups and tv programmes...
So.. the mystery of Kelham. I asked the traders I know if they had seem an appreciable dip in per capita spend from customers over the period of the so called Recession and the answer was ... NO. Some had seen a plateu-ing, others a gentle rise.
So.. why did the tumbleweed blow down the high street of Kelham on Sunday...
