COTSWOLD WARGAMING DAY
Sunday 1st September 2019
Westwoods Community Centre
Bassett Road
Northleach GL54 3QJ

I hesitate to call this a 'show' - it is rather a gathering of local wargamers in the Coitswolds area, with some friends coming from farther afield. The Day is in its second year.

The event is about wargamers coming together in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere to do a bit of gaming, have a chat, and swap stories and opinions. There are no traders, but there will be 'Wargaming Exchange' area to swap/sell/buy/give away wargaming stuff in an informal way. This year, 8 games are planned. I request a voluntary 5 contribution to cover costs. Free tea, coffe and biscuits.

Check out last years event at the link below. This year is planned to be a bit bigger (second link).

Sadly I am on holiday or I would be there ... especially as there is a rumor that there might be an BKCIV game with an armoured train making an appearance.
I'd love to see some photos and read a account of the game - pretty please  Cheesy

Have a great day Keith. Unfortunately the cost and time of travelling by public transport rules not out for me.

I think I replied by email it's in the diary. Bloody Big Battles may have to happen.

Bring your old school hat and new school fun head. Sarcasm, wit and banter is compulsory. Beards must be combed through in advance.
