Unfortunately I won't be able to make this date. Nor will David - its GCSE year.

Is this likely to be a new regular date for Rollcall? It puts two of the bigger tournaments very close to each other, with a big gap left in October.

Stay at the Pink Punter. You won't be a Virgin after that!

There's Derby in October.

There is a big tournament just about every month except May this year

It's not a town centre exactly, more of a giant game of Tetris played with shopping malls. There are loads of shiny new relatively cheap hotels.

However, Cranfield, where Roll Call is, is about 10 miles away

Can we suggest periods? How about:
Rocks and Rolls; 15mm, any army pre 800BC and any from Blood and Gold.
Average Joes; 15mm, any army; Only 2 BG may be elite, superior and/or drilled. All others must be average or poor and undrilled.
Elitist; 15mm, any army, all except 2 BG must be elite or superior
Inferiority Complex; 25mm
