Club Dates 2017

Below is a list of the planned games for meetings in 2017. If it does not show otherwise, all games are open to join for all those turning up and figures, terrain and rules are provided by those running the game. Please contact the person indicated to make sure that they have spare slots if you're really keen on joining a particular event.

You might find it useful to bring a tape measure, preferably marked in cms and inches, dice and pen / pencil / paper. Although game hosts should provide everything for the game there are never enough tape measures to go round (and every wargamer knows that you can never have enough dice !).

Club meetings are free to paid up members and to new attendees for their first two visits.

If nothing is shown club regulars always bring a game you can participate in.

Field of Glory games take place at most meetings, anyone welcome to join in, for details ask Paul, Pete, Colin, Bret or John

Andy has updated the audit of the tables available at the hall; there are 11 60"x30" and five 60"x27" canteen style tables, 20 22"x22" card tables plus the club's three gaming boards at 72"x48". The last each need to be balanced on either two tables or four card tables. So there's easily scope for half-a-dozen games to go on at once.

We've left games that have already happened in place, so that non-members can see the variety of games that we run. Archived diaries from previous years can be accessed from the menu (left).
