The 2017 Conference has just come to a close in Blackpool. This year it was held at Molloys in the town rather than Uncle Tom,s.
And a great time was had by all..The venue, slightly smaller than last year, was better suited to what we do. Although we had more people turn up than usual. Big thanks to all.
The Bands were once again brilliant, with surprise guest Joe Jammer doing an impromptu appearance.(Many Thanks Joe). The Boogie Woogie band on Fri playing a brilliant set, with Joe Jammer, Alan Hope and Chinners all doing some appearances.. A Big thankyou to all…..
Sat–the Bus Tour around Blackpool was well attended and the people of Blackpool reacted favourably, followed by our annual Cabinet Reshuffle….
Alan gave his usual stirring speech with appropriate praise for our election successes in 2017 (and there were many).
We headlined with The “amazing” Vince Ripper and the Rodent Show, and finishing off with Badaxe, who excelled himself (but he’s ok now) and got two ovations. (yes its true, and quite right too…)
Loads of people who don’t normally come to the Conference where there and Baron who was running the merchandise stall, has signed up many new members..(Big thanks to Baron for all his hard work.
Altogether a great success, and we look forward to next years conference….several places have already been mentioned.
pictures to come….
Note next years Conference dates are Thurs 27th Sept -Sat 29th Sept..Venue to be arranged but book those dates in your diary now…
