OFFICIAL: REPUBLIC TO EMPIRE WEEKENDER OCTOBER 2010

Post by barr7430 » Tue May 18, 2010 10:54 am

Delighted to announce that the second Republic to Empire weekender will now be run at the Lundin Links hotel on 16/17 October 2010.
The scenario is yet to be decided but will be from the 1815 Campaign and involve large numbers of lovely troops and nice terrain.

The hotel deal will subject to confirmation be the same as before which I understand is
£30 per night for a shared room
£45 per night for a single
£30 meal deal: 3 course dinner + 2 lunches and a breakfast.

Cost of attending the event will for this one, stay the same at £50 total.

Places open to book now with hotel bookings direct to the Lundin Links asking for Arlynne Gold.

Look forward to seeing you there!!

Jim, Bob, Ray (i think), Paul and myself although I think DO'B will be with us and I suspect DI.

Not having booked my trip to the UK yet (we are probably coming in september) I'm wondering about delaying it till Oct as we're flexible and its just a visit to see family.

I usually like to combine my trip with a visit to a show 8) ...

.... (no silly, not something like Les Miserables but something with little miserable Frenchmen attacking :D )

Is there anything in the way of a decent wargames show around this time as well?
