My involvement was with the Bling Pig, as we hosted the venue and staffed the counter, providing drinks, nibbles and lunch. A selection of BPLaser products were also on sale.
The day from the Blind Pig perspective was Paul, Leslie and myself staffing the counter, telling stories and jokes to pass the while. We were joined briefly by Jason with coffee for Paul, and also had the company of Tim, who spent a number of hours with us, making the time literally fly by before his missus chased him up by text and he fled in "terror" (no not really, just making that up)!
Was a long day for me, was there at 7am and got home at 6:45pm (thank goodness I'm only a few minutes away from the venue). I think getting old has it's price...
So here are the photos from the day. There may be some comments where I know people, but generally it will be just examples of the days event.

to the other side or has their backs to me when I act as cameraman.
There were photos taken by the tablet is not great at fast photos.
