Paul - you might want to sit down.

I have some bad news for you, concerning a large part of the last 25 years of your life....

How big can Salamanca be Paul. Even bigger than RHB?

Date: 4, 5 & 6 August 2017

Where : Salamanca Forum – Hotel Doña Brigida

Address:
Avda. del Tormes s/n (urb, Vega de Salamanca),
37185 Villamayor,
Salamanca.
Spain

Dave R is in charge of setting the FoGAM details

Due to the numbers of players expected, the ETC have blocked booked the venue hotel and reserved rooms in other hotels via the El Corte Ingles travel agency. They have also negociated special prices for us as an incentive to use their services. They are also sponsoring the event so while you're totally free to choose how you book your trip to Salamanca any business we can throw their way is a bonus for the event. They can answer you in English, Spanish or German.

This might work as a link to hotel details https://xa.yimg.com/kq/groups/Zb_OeLjre ... C+2017.pdf

Thanks David. I think the other thing worth confirming is that we will use v2 of the rules.

I don't know the timescales for V3 as yet, so don't want that uncertainty muddying the waters. This could be unfortunate if Tezza plans to launch v3 prior to August, but as we've not been able to prise timescales out of him there's not a massive amount I can do...

Thanks Paul - the current Mrs Dalby will be demanding a slightly higher standard of accommodation.

It's looking extremely likely that this competition will no longer take place.

PLEASE DO NOT BOOK FLIGHTS OR ACCOMMODATION AT THIS TIME.

Let me know immediately if you are planning on attending.

To be clear. It is the FOG AM (I don't think there was an R part) component of the Main ETC and The Worlds Events that are not proceeding. The rest of the scheduled activities are still occurring.

FoGAM is currently played in the UK, France, Belgium and Germany, but no players from France, Germany or Belgium were prepared to go to Spain this year for the Worlds - so I think the answer is to ask your fellow players in France..?

I guess they may say the location is difficult, but it does not appear to be such a big problem to get there for for players of ADLG, or for the 300+ players of FoW, Warmachine, Wargammer and X-Wing who will in the same venue at the same time for the ETC...
