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