Farthest From Dec 2015 - Saturday Evening Infotainment

Not sure if this is visible to all:

Farthest From was stunning.  To cap it all I had a long chat with Gerald Home, not only in the evening but also at breakfast as we were the only two up.  He told some great stories, most of which I can't repeat, and I was certainly shocked!  Was great to see so many collectors, the Jedinews guys and Dave Tree as usual.
I reckon there must have been 500 MOCs FS, 1000s loose, many boxed and oddball stuff.  One of the best yet.

Great stuff Richard. Our very own cantina_patron (aka Steve) was there as well. I think he mention that was able to chat with Jason Smith for a bit as well. Very Happy

Unfortunately I was only able to attend the first couple of hours in the morining, but as mentioned there was a lot of quiality vintage items there including proof cards.
I met Gerald Home a few years ago when I was selling at a Sci-Fi show. He is a very friendly & entertaining man. I'm glad that he was able to share some stories with you Richard, & thanks for posting the link. Very Happy

I'm visible in this pic taken during the charity auction.

I also had a catchup with Matt Booker from Jedi News (who I have known for several years).

Steve who's the creepy looking bloke you circled in red? Looks like someone on the neighbourhood watch stranger danger list. Hope he didn't harass you mate...

Thanks for sharing Rich! Really have to get my butt to FF sometime soon. Looks like loads of fun.

I don't know Christian, but I agree he looks dodgy as hell! Perhaps we should start a 'watch out' thread.  lol!

Christian it would be amazing if you could come to the next FF. Don't worry about accommodation/hotels etc.
I might take the Podcast Motor home again and you could be our special guest!
