Hi,

I am afraid I can now confirm I can no longer attend and I was going to bring a sensible option as well. No border reviers this year..

I am cancelling due to a Scouting, no not LH or LF before you all start :), commitment.

However I have mentioned the fun of border reivers to Bruce ;)

Enjoy the day.

Ok Nigel, thanks for letting us know and enjoy your stick rubbing.

Good to hear you can join us Bruce but I'm not familiar with your forum name so which Bruce are you?

We operate under the "University of Woollamaloo" principle - everyone is called Bruce to avoid confusion.

I know at least three Bruce's but you are the only wargaming one. And now I can put a face to the name, Bruce "Huguenot" Rollett :)

Due to many and various reasons, neither Pete Simpson or I can make this one now. Sorry. :(

How many player are left in the competition. Should we pay more to cover the costs?

Unfortunately, Bob is correct in asking how many players are left in this competition. We have now had 10 players drop out which means we can no longer cover the cost of hiring the hall and the associated expenses.

This leaves a few options. Firstly we can get more players but this seems very unlikely at this stage. Secondly, we can put the fee up for the day and finally we can cancel the event. The latter is the option of last resort as at this stage I don't want to find out if there will be a financial penalty for cancelling the hire of the hall this late in the day.

So, I need to know if the players still coming would be willing to pay £15 for the day rather than the £12 we originally quoted? This is pretty much the fee most of the SL competitions charge anyway but it is an unexpected increase this late in the day for which I can only apologise.

Feedback from as many, if not all, of you as possible would be much appreciated.

The Oxford 4 are happy to pay £15 each.

Rather pay more than not have a game.

Hi Alasdair,

I have kept the list of players up to date on the first page of this topic,dated Dec 7th. I have reminded all the Wessex guys and if you need any of those chasing let me know as most don't frequent this forum.

Yes, no problem. They will be there on the 10th as well and if I forget them either day the barracks are just up the road as you know. :)
