Announcement: BritCon 2012

Britcon 2012
Incorporating The Worlds

The BHGS are delighted to announce the dates for this year's Britcon have now been confirmed as Friday 10th – Sunday 12th August 2012. The venue will be the traditional location of the University of Manchester, England.

Since the last Britcon the committee have been working hard to ensure the dates do not conflict with other events happening during the month of August from both a National and International perspective.

The delay in announcing the dates has been due to a major renegotiation of the contract with UMIST, investigations of new venues and discussions with International bodies. A calculated risk was taken in sharing the date with Wargames Illustrated before the final contract was in place with the University.

More information regarding the construct of the event, ticket prices and accommodation options will become clear in the very near future.

The BHGS would like to thank everyone for their patience and apologise to those who have been inconvenienced by the delay.

The new BHGS web-site is now live at www.bhgs.org.uk. Information and entries for BritCon, Roll Call and other BHGS events are there.

A big thank you to Martin “Nobby” Neale and James “Hammy” Hamilton for all the hard work they have put in over the last six months to get the web-site and BritCon organised. It has been a mammoth effort and there is still a lot of work to be done.

Thank you everyone for your patience.

BritCon has changed!
While we have tried to keep to the successful BritCon format of the past we have been forced to make some changes. We have also listened to feedback and made changes that will improve BritCon. We hope you like what we have done. Either way, let us know what you think.

Why the new URL?
We have not migrated everything from the www.bhgs.co.uk web-site. As I am sure you can appreciate there is a decade of material there. When everything has been moved across we will shut down the old site and transfer the domain name.

How do I send feedback?
If you have any questions, comments or spot any errors about specific competitions then please email the competition organisers whose details are on the competition information pages.
If the information is about the new web-site then please contact nobby@cuboids.co.uk.
Or if you would prefer then use the Contact page on the new web-site.
