Blog-Con in Nottingham, at Foundry. 9th/10th November.

James Brewerton (of http://exilespainting.blogspot.co.uk/ ) is organising a wargaming bloggers convention called Blog-Con to be held at Wargames Foundry on the 9th and 10th of November.

Here is the link to the Blog-Con blog: http://wargamesblog-con.blogspot.co.uk/

I thought it might be fun to have a few Oldhammerers preaching the good word to the masses so if anyone wants to meet up and play a game let me know. If we get a small group we can get together and play out an Oldhammer game in the classic style, two, three or four a side with a GM. Having your own minis is welcome but probably won't be essential.

That's a real shame, it's right on your doorstep and you'll be 1000s of miles away. Sure your boss won't understand if you pull a sickie? You'll be missed mate. :(

Chances are I would be able to attend either blog-con or the first YOBBOS event but not both seeing as they are so close together. I'll have a think and get back to you. Thinking about it, I may not be able to attend the YOBBOS event because I think my wife has a market on that day (first Saturday of every month I believe).

They are pretty close together, I can make both but I didn't anticipate Blog-Con would compete with YOBBOS, sorry. Whichever one you pick, your involvement will be much appreciated. I understand there are distance issues with YOBBOS too. You will of course always be welcome at any of the meetings as and when you can make it.

I'm sure I could wangle Blog-Con as well as the Yobbo meet.

Steve - be great to catch up with you again at either :)

Ack...I'm literally about 5 miles away any normal weekend, but that weekend I'll be over 200 miles away at a wedding near Swanage.

My wife is making positive noises about me attending this event. Which is good, as I spent most of the Oldhammer Weekend talking rather than actually getting a good game of Third in! Hopefully, things will go my way!
