Autumn 2016 - Weekender

Post by barr7430 » Mon Apr 18, 2016 10:12 am

Having heard from many of the gang at SALUTE who asked what is happening in the Autumn of 2016 regarding a weekender we realised we needed to get organized!

Pow wow will shortly take place and info should appear here.

We now have a definite date for the weekender.

It will be held at the Cairndale Hotel, Dumfries from 11/11 - 13/11

Further details later in the week once Barry & myself have put our heads together, but if you're interested in the weekend can you let us know ASAP, so we can judge if it's viable.

More info later in the week.

Thanks for the quick response chaps. Tog and I will confirm the scenario(s) soon. Suffice it to say the Cairndale is a good venue as some of you already know. We will I am sure be joined by some of our friends from Dumfries for the game so it's looking like fun already!

Numbers seem to be firming up which is great. We have 8 confirmed players so far excluding Tog, Gerry and I. Will keep you all posted!

OK - pike and shot it is. I am looking at the scenarios right now and we'll probably have a little twist for November too. That will involve some pre event 'campaigning' by your forces.

Scenario info to follow

Guys

Unlike the events we have run previously at Derby, where you paid money to Ade & he booked the hotel, this time you will book directly with the hotel.

If you call to reserve a room, mention that it's for the "Wargames" event.

Cairndale Hotel
English Street
Dumfries
DG1 2DF
Tel: 01387254111

The room rates are
£89.00 for a single
£65.00 for a twin

This rate includes all meals, plus a comedy event on Friday & cabaret on Saturday.

The cost for the game will be £100.00 payable on the weekend.

Once you've booked, if you can let us know so we can keep a tally on numbers.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Toggy
