BELGARUM 2015 - FOG AM open

Post by lakedaimon » Wed Nov 05, 2014 11:56 pm

Wessex Wargamers at Winchester, Hampshire, are please to announce their inaugral FOG AM tournament, VENTA BELGARUM to be held by the club.

VENTA BELGARUM 2015 will be held at Badger Farm Community Centre in Winchester on the Saturday 28th February and Sunday 1st March 2015. Entry is £15.

It will be a FOG AM Version 2, OPEN Tournament , with 800 points on a 60 by 40 inch tables (like Britcon). :mrgreen:

We are particularly keen to encourage players who may not have played in many tournaments to take part or indeed any overseas players wishing to enjoy the ancient capitol of King Alfreds Wessex.

Please contact Alan on dsfl2000@yahoo.com re payment and entry. Any questions on the tournament please contact David Bannister on dcbannister@aol.com.

Situated just off the M3 at Winchester, the venue has a BAR , with a Starbucks and Sainsbury next door. There is sufficient parking for an armoured division and is free. The nearest airport is fifteen minutes away at Southampton and you can proceed to winchester easily from there by train or taxi - again let us know if you are coming and we will do our best to collect from the train or airport.

Kind regards

Wessex Wargamers at Winchester

If you are travelling by train please let David know as we are happy to arrange pickups on the Saturday etc. It is planned to reserve a restaurant for the Saturday evening next to the Cathedral.

Good to hear. I need a straw poll of how many others are up for a sit down dinner - but I should be able to get us a decent meal!

For everyone else who has said they are coming, time to get in the money - paypal or cheques to Alan accepted.
