I would just like
to express, on behalf of the Herne Bay & Whitstable Wargamers, our
thanks for another great Salute. This was our first visit as a club
and as competitors (having all previously enjoyed it immensely as part
of the paying public), and we were surprised and impressed by the level
of organisation evident 'behind the scenes'. We had barely opened the
doors of our van when 2 Warlords appeared with hand trucks. They were
very polite and helpful, quickly and carefully moving all of our gaming
gear to our allotted table. This set the standard for the rest of the
show. All members of the Warlords, and of the SELWG club, that we met,
were equally polite and very complimentary of our participation game,
All Quiet on The Seafront. It was a long, tiring, but fun day, and we
enjoyed every minute of it! The other club members, traders and particularly
the public were great fun, and without fail very friendly.
Please accept our apologies for the delay in contacting you with our thanks, but a combination of being on 'a high' from the day itself, and fielding calls from fellow gamers has meant time has passed quicker than we realised.
We look forward to returning next year, hopefully with another fun game.

Just a quick email
to say thank you for such a great show on Saturday. It was my first
time to Salute, but I can understand why it has the reputation that
it has. It is absolutely amazing what you achieve and all with volunteers.
Thanks guys for
another outstanding show.
Just to say congratulations' on a really well organised show. All the Warlords we came in contact with were really friendly and helpful. Had a successful show, hope to see you next year.

On behalf of our club
can we thank you for the opportunity to put
Just a quick note to say thanks for all the work you and the warlords did on Saturday
As our first major show it was a great success and i look forward to seeing you again next year [could you hold it in Kent as its easier for us]
Just got home (Milton Keynes) from Salute 2003 and wanted to say a BIG "Well done!" Great show, great wargames - liked the "loadsa little tables for mini-games", great for the kids amongst us (!!) But...
PLEASE, do something more next year about those irresponsible types who smoke cigarettes, pipes, wacky-baccy all around the halls, loos, odd corners, by the phones... Ugh! 'orrid people!
I was a smoker once, til 18 years ago, so I understand that if you are a smoker you'll want to light up at some time during the day: but either have the good sense to get a "pass-out" and go outside, or for-go you're bacca til home-time!
One person upstairs near the Victorian British Army re-enactment lot had the most vile-smelling bacca (must have been some Dutch geezer - their pipe tobacco is pretty pungent!) but it really spoilt standing watching the soldiers strut their stuff!
I had a word later at the Warlords stand, but I could still see & smell folk smoking late in the afternoon. Shame.
By the way, who was that gorgeous girl as 'Lara Croft' She was great! I had quite a long chat with her - very intelligent lass, well spoken, no bombo that one! - and some kind chap took my picture with her. Just for the record I'd love to know her name - I didn't have teh nerve to ask her! She'd have thought "who's this bearded old **!!** trying to get off with me??!!"
Looking forward to next year (glad I always buy a Q-Buster - best way of getting in first thing!)
I just wanted to drop you a line on behalf of LKM Direct to say many thanks for the superb organisation at the show. We managed to get in and unloaded with the minimum of fuss, ably supported by your never-ending stream of porters, parking was straight-forward and leaving proved just as simple.
Great event !!!
To the Salute Organisers
Just a quick thank you for organising an excellent show. Unfortunately, running a participation game I didn't get to see too much of it. However, the pre show organisation and the organisation on the day was top notch and much appreciated. Two assistants who hadn't been to the Olympia Salute said they would be attending again. My problem is do I organise another game for next year and enjoy myself or do I attend as a paying customer and really enjoy myself.
I know you are busy with the debrief.
This is just to extend a very sincere thank you to your goodselves and fellow Warlords for a really excellent show ." Hats off" to you it really works.
