BlogCon 3 - Venue and Dates

I think I've got to a stage with a venue where we can talk about dates and numbers.

Venue

Despite trying to find a venue that was an attraction in itself (I think we would have all liked to have gone the the IWM at Duxford!), I think practicalities of cost have ruled this out.  I also think we really just want somewhere convenient to meet, socialise and play a few games.

The Newnham Croft Scout Centre is about 10 mins walk from the centre of Cambridge (it's also about 10 mins walk from the railway station, which is in a different direction).  The postcode is CB3 9JF for those who want to check it out on Google Maps, etc.

It's been used as a venue in the past by one of the wargaming groups in the city and appears to have decent facilities - parking, a small kitchen, etc.  There's a pub round the corner that does decent lunches and a couple of shops.

Dates

I have options on the following dates (Saturdays, 11am-5pm).  I'd like votes on them as soon as possible so we can make a booking!

  • 25 October,
  • 15 November
  • 22 November
  • 29November

Games

What's been suggested is that we have two tabletop games running and perhaps some boardgames.  Any volunteers?

Bring & Buy/Swop Shop

This seems to be a popular idea - bring your lead!

  1. Sounds good, not sure which dates best for me, I probably can do any of them, will have a chat with Lee.

    I can bring down a selection of Eurogames if this is what your looking for. Mostly from around the Settlers time period

  2. Good stuff, I think I'm free any day except the 15th November. I'll have a chat with Ray & Fran to see if they are interested in travelling up together.
