Posh Lard 2019 is GO

Post by TroubleAtTheMill » Fri May 03, 2019 11:00 am

Sunday June 2nd (yes, I know this clashes with the last day of UK Games Expo...), 9am-6pm (although games will probably start around 10am). We may well decamp to the Brewery Tap for some of their excellent Thai food afterwards.

The games available will be under the theme “Invasion” and are likely to be:

* Bloody Omaha (IABSM) – Peterborough
* St. Mere Eglise (CoC) – Gravesend
* Brecourt Manor (CoC) – Peterborough
plus possibly another CoC and a Dux Brit game subject to confirmation.

Anyone interested in bringing anything else, please drop us a note as well at lard@peterborough-wargames-club.org.uk (please be aware, though, that until we have a confirmed idea of numbers, there will be a limit on the number of games we can immediately accept).

Admission is £5 (since this isn’t a tournament and we don’t have to cover prizes!), and you can sign up here

It's in Peterborough town centre, at our club - on site free parking, handy Wetherspoons/McD's/Subway/Waitrose for lunch. handy very nice Thai restaiurant/real ale pub about 5 mins walk away for post-game meal, two hotels within walking distance for those who've come a long way, 5 mins walk from the station and bus station, 10 mins from the A1.

Games update for Posh Lard:

If you’re after a game at Posh Lard on Sunday 2nd June, these are your current choices:

Bloody Omaha – 15mm IABSM3 as seen at Salute. Room for 2-4 players
Ste Mère Église – 28mm Big CoC. Room for 2-4 players
Brécourt Manor – 28mm CoC. Room for 1-2 players
“You’d Have To Be A Lunatic” Menton 1940 – 20mm Big CoC. Room for 2-5 players

Sadly AndyH is busy, so we can’t squeeze in a Dux Brit game.

Rich Clarke from TFL will be attending: As yet he’s unsure if he’s bringing a game. We’ll probably run most of the games (except Bloody Omaha) twice (subject to confirmation), and if you want to duck into or out of the latter halfway, that’ll be fine too.

Plenty of room for more folks if anyone is interested: you can sign up for the princely sum of £5 at http://www.peterborough-wargames-club.o ... lard-2019/

(As an aside, if any is up for bringing another game. I /think/ we might just about have enough Chain of Command! :D)

Update:

There are still places available for Posh Lard - see http://www.peterborough-wargames-club.o ... lard-2019/ for signup :D

I will be getting the game allocation request mail out shortly - I’m still waiting on a reply from one of the organisers. Apologies this has taken a while - I seem to have spent the week fighting dead computers and the NHS (my son is still in hospital).

Games:

Bloody Omaha – 15mm IABSM3 as seen at Salute.. Room for 2-4 players
Ste Mère Église – 28mm Big CoC. Room for 2-4 players
“You’d Have To Be A Lunatic” Manton 1940 – 20mm Big CoC. Room for 2-5 players

We have, for now, dropped the Brecourt Manor game as it’d spread the current list of players a bit thin. If we get more signups we can always add it back.
