Good news...

Steve the Wargamer wishes all of the poor deluded fools* a very good New Year; may your beers be fresh and hoppy, your pork pies crispy, and your die rolls high or low as required...

One good piece of news from the guys at Newbury and Reading Wargames club...

"Colours 2015: N&RWG are pleased to share that Colours will run in 2015. The big change is that it will move to a one day format rather than the two day show that we’ve run previously. This change is a really important one as it is driven by our desire to bring a high quality show with all the best traders and demonstration games. Colours will be on Saturday 12th September 2015 at Newbury Race Course. For show visitors: as the show date get closer check back here more details including showtimes, directions, traders list and forms."

Dates in your (new) diaries chaps...

* that hope, one day, there may be something interesting to read etcetc

  2. All the best, Steve - I confess I don't know where Newbury actually is, so I shall consult the oracle (or "insult the coracle", possibly?). I think a few of the bigger wargame/military modelling shows might benefit from downsizing and upping the average quality - less unmanned trade stalls would be a start. But that, of course, is merely my opinion.

    Cheers - Tony

    1. Tony - I think Colours has been heading that way for some time to be honest.. of even something as big as Salute can't run 2 days then you have to question a number of others... one exception might be Warfare as that is primarily a competition weekend, but even there I can see the trade part of the show coming down to just one of the days..

  4. Happy New Year! Newbury race course sounds like an easier venue to get to - might even tempt me to go again after 15 years!

    1. Stryker - use it or lose it, as the young people say... the Newbury venue is several orders of magnitude better than the old Hexagon!
