Title: Warfare, Ascot - Sat/Sun 27th/28th Nov
Post by: Leon on 06 September 2021, 03:57:07 PM
The Warfare show is returning for 2021 and it's got a shiny new venue!  Gone are the rather yellowy halls of the Rivermead and in comes the shiny newness of Ascot Racecourse!  This move should be fantastic news for the show, giving it much more space to spread out and grow in future years.

You can place your pre-orders through our website by selecting the 'Collect at Show' delivery option and then entering the event you would like to collect from in the comments box on the following page.  Payment can be made in advance by card/PayPal or you can choose to pay on the day.  Please make sure to place your pre-orders at least 7 days in advance of the event as we've got a lot of shows in November and stocks will be running low.

7th/8th would be a Sun/Mon so probably not!  All fixed now, it's the 27th/28th Nov.

They're having a 7 hour Rug by match on Saturday, And a 6 hour one on Sunday (AKA a Bring and Buy)  :o
I predict a Riot   :-
two years of no shows and lots of extra painting.

I wonder whether we will need Covid passports for events such as this?

I really hope this does well in its new location. It was my favourite show of the year and made for a great weekend away with the lads. Now I am in the Netherlands I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a return of Crisis in Antwerp.

...I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a return of Crisis in Antwerp.

I can't see Crisis returning in anywhere near its previous form sadly, as it's incredibly difficult for the UK traders to there due to the paperwork required.  We spoke to the government's EU/Brexit team earlier this year and the new paperwork includes custom declarations for all stock outward and inward, declarations for all stand and display equipment as 'non sale items' on outward and inward, VAT payments due to Belgium for the sales at the event (regardless of VAT status in the UK and the payment may be due before leaving the country), European driving permits and extra van insurance for the continent.  And then the added potential of having to empty your entire van at the side of the road for a custom spot-check.  I can't see it being viable for any UK business at all, expect for maybe Warlord if they've registered a European company base now.

I'll be putting on a 10mm ACW demo-game at Warfare (all Pendraken)  8)

It's entitled 'No Better Place To Die': The Battle of Murfreesboro or Stones River, 31st December 1862.

I am afraid I will not be going to Warfare this year, I have booked myself on a weekend course.
