There are last minute plans afoot to change to a smaller venue so we should be ok for cash.
Updates will be posted in good time.

Yes, Wednesday.

I don't suppose anyone else has put their name down?

(I still appear twice, by the way, so we might have an odd number.)

There are a few more locals who may/may not be coming.
We might conceivably hit 20, probably more like 16/17.

If you need someone to chip in and help you break even on the hall price, I'd be happy to spot you the cost of, erm, missing participants' tickets if that would help.

Thanks Koval.
Hopefully it won't come to that. We have contingency plans.

Well, changing the venue this close to the event may present problems if people still show up at the old venue. That'll lead to a lot of unhappy players. :(

IMPORTANT UPDATE

The venue for this year's tournament has changed.
We will now be at:

Vanguard Wargaming
188 Hotwells Road,
Hotwells,
Bristol
BS8 4RP


This is about a 5 minute drive from the previous venue so hopefully it won't mess with anyone's travel plans too much at all.
Also it's a dedicated wargaming facility, so we'll be in good hands throughout the day.

Excellent, thanks for the update.
Parking is a bit iffy there, but should be a great place to play.

Didn't realise Vanguard was big enough for a tournie.
Good though having dedicated facilities rather than a school hall.

I will have to walk an extra 15 minutes though  >:(
lol.

The new venue is quite small, with a maximum of 24 players.
But it's a far more appropriate space for the number we have, and a far more appropriate price too.

There are quite a few places to park, they're just a bit hidden.
I'll post a map.

nah nothing serious. going to reading fest on Friday and working on Sunday so it not really viable to go to the tournament as its 7 hours of driving. plus I forgot that we had to put in army lists before the event so it seems kind of pointless going to a tournament where I'm on minus points before I even start!

Nope. All the timings remain the same.  :)
It's just 5 minutes away from the other venue so hopefully it won't mess people's plans too much at all.

Parking is quite good near the venue but can be difficult to spot.
Just opposite is an Army Surplus shop called Marcross Stores. You can park in behind here (entrance to the right) as there are some allocated spots for Fitfirm Gym, which belongs to the same owner as the Venue.

There's also quite a lot of parking at the end of Hotwells road, behind and around the Rose of Denmark pub.
The streets to look for are Charles Place, Little Caroline Place and Oldfield Place.

We're looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

Don't forget the free car park on Brunel Way just across Junction Lock Bridge. (If you can get there early enough!)
See you all tomorrow.
Is the curry still on?
