Salute 2021 - The Pics

Salute 2021 – The Pics


Beware this is a long post!

Yesterday some of the Rejects visited the Excel Centre in London to attend Salute 2021.

It was a strange event if I’m totally honest, we arrived early and got into the show before it opened thanks to our Press Passes!

We were all quite stunned as there were loads of holes were both traders and club games were missing.
After speaking to a few traders we were told that some big names pulled out right at the last minute. Personally I had no plans to buy anything from Gripping Beast, 4Ground and Hasslefree, but I’m sure there were loads of people who were miffed at these big guys not turning up. 
I’m not sure why these and other traders didn’t attend, perhaps it was Covid, Brexit or just plain politics, but they were missed.
Now this pic really amazed me, the queue to get into the show 15 minutes before opening time!!!!
I normally take a photo when the doors open and nearly get squashed in the stampede?
I did here that number were down and only half the normal tickets had been pre bought?
This was going to be a strange day??
Taking up a lot of room were a Spitfire!

and a Hurricane


10 minutes to go and there’s still gaps everywhere.

Yes more Donnybrook stuff!!
Charles looking very grumpy, (this was the best pic I’m afraid!) and Stephen M Carter

Both me and BigLee succumbed and bought a cloth mat.

And finally we come to the games, like I previously said, there wasn’t as many as normal at Salute, probably more than 50% down infact!
