Any Interest in a 2017 100 Years of War Event?

Would there be interest if I ran 100 Years of War again this September.?

For those who haven't been involved before it is a 2 session gaming day fearuring a variety of systems/scales from 1900 to the present day. I have run it as a joint Falkirk Club/SOTCW event for a few years now, although we normally don't get that many SOTCW members.

Open to all - not just Falkirk/SOTCW members.

Date would be Sunday 24th

I would be interested. Although living on the south coast I retire in 6 weeks time and want to get more gaming in. My youngest will be working in Glasgow from August and would give me a good opportunity to make a weekend of it and visit him.

Skirmish Sangin is the fourth game that is likely to be on offer - I think there will be a few people wanting to give this a go

I take it there is an assumption that you wont run in to a serial killer in your sojourn to Matlock Dave.

Hi Dave  My Granda , God rest him , took part in the retreat from Mons with the Cameronians ( Scottish Rifles ) and said it was the worst experience he had in the war .Considering he was in the B.E.F. and fought right through till late November 1917 , and during the course of that , lost a brother , and was seriously wounded on three occasions ,that's saying something.   
   
   Dave could you put the postcode for the venue on the forum please.   cheers and all the very best on the day.  John

The venue is

Newlands Community Centre

This is our normal club venue. 

All are welcome on 24/9 but it helps a lot if I know who is coming to balance games and players

OK so I have 15 confirmed, 4 who I expect but have not comfirmed, 8 who want to attend but can't finally cofirm yet and 9 who expressed an interest but have not got back to me. Fairly normal with 2 weeks to go - should end up somewhere in the mid 20s
