At Salute this year (our first time of attending) we noticed that there were far more younger gamers than at other shows. When I say younger those in their 20s and below. At Colours in comparison it really is a case of mainly middle aged, white males, balding, overweight, with glasses, poor dress sense and some with hygeine issues. And before I’m berated for my observations I fit into a lot of these catogories and am also not the only one to have commented on this!
Post Salute we did feel that the hobby was in good health, with at least new blood coming in, and a very strong presence from a variety of traders etc.
