Salute 2017 – The Pics (A Looong Post!)

Posted on April 23rd, 2017 under , . Posted by

Its Sunday night and my feet still hurt!
Yep I’ve got to admit it, it was bloody knackering walking around Salute all day!
Postie, Dave and myself left early, unlike last year I actually remembered the tickets this time!
So upon arrival to the Excel centre, me and Postie abandoned Dave to the Salute queue and if you’ve ever been to Salute you’ll know the pain of the Salute queue!
Yes, that does mean we had a press pass once again. yee haw! So we got in nice and early around 8.30ish. After an hour of wandering around I called BigLee to see where he was. He wasn’t best pleased when I told him we were already spending our hard earned dosh and had been for an hour or so. He called me a few names, none of which I can repeat here, but he did include a photo
see below!
