OK.

Full weekend event £150.00 - probably nearly there with the oversubscribed hosting donations.

Certainly looks promising! Look at the scenery on offer. Loads of trees and buildings aplenty. And August seems to be clear. Any idea how many tables? I think that the Foundry can do 20+ with on site meals and bar.

Re: Oldhammer date veto.

Ladies? & Gentlemen,

On the issue of venues, please take into consideration why are we doing this - to meet-up, play a game or two, and generally socialize amongst ourselves whilst drinking the odd beer or two; or are we trying to publicize ourselves to the general gaming community whilst socializing, playing games and drinking the odd beer to two; if the latter, you may want to take into consideration will the venue let casual visitors in to see the show.
I know which premiss I would like to think we'd run with, but it's a group decision at the end of the day and I'll abide by that decision.

Food for thought

Re: Oldhammer date veto.

Other than the fact I like Foundry as a venue my personal choice of location is confined by travel time - anything over a couple of hours is essentially out for me.

The upshot of this is that should the "headline event" take place elsewhere and I am unable to attend, I would still be looking to meet up with any interested parties at Foundry at some point next Summer for a few games, hopefully extending over a weekend.

Re: Oldhammer date veto.

It would be a real shame if the only date that "the regulars" could all attend was blocked by Foundry because they were off at a show - selling minis and promoting Foundry comes first for them, their running a venue is a secondary concern. It's early days and keeping options and minds open would be good, it's not an either/or choice between Foundry or WHC.

Jon Sutherland runs a place in Crete... http://www.wargameholidays.com/ OK so I doubt anyone would want the expense or hassle but hey, there's a pool!

There's also http://www.commongroundgames.co.uk/ which is in Scotland., perfect for McDeath.

For those tethered to Nottinghamshire region may I suggest the mutant-mothership for an Oldhammer Takeover?

Re: Oldhammer date veto.

I think I can do all of those dates, so I won't veto any of them.

In terms of venue, Foundry seems to have everything we need. It's central, free, has great facilities and the people who run it have shown themselves willing to accommodate whatever needs we have. I genuinely can't see why we would be looking elsewhere.

Of course, the fact that Foundry is within walking distance for me is entirely coincidental :)
