We have just got back from a manic weekend at the NEC in Birmingham.. tired but happy. Our Jeanius water resistant jeans were a big hit amongst show visitors, although that may have been something to do with Dan and Pete following people around with water pistols! Our new Isolwool trekking socks arrived just a day late, but a mad dash back to Ilkeston saw them on our stand by Saturday morning at just £15 for three pairs.
Our coLAB Award provided a welcome attraction for many show visitors. This years winner was Kevin Beeden (AKA Captain Paranoia) with his Squeezebox stove. In second, and not too many votes behind was John Martin and his White Out Torch, and in third was Simon Masters with his SOS sleeping mat. We would like to thank all the participants for the commitment and energy they demonstrated over the 3 days.
We are back to the NEC today to break down the stand, but we will put up a full report as soon as things get a but more settled in the office.
