It suits me that it's cancelled too. I couldn't make this year's date.

Let's have a serious go at organising something epic next year.

Should you organise something for next year I will seriously consider making the trek north to attend. Please keep us posted.

Chaps, I am really sorry to hear this. I was just about to book my accommodation when I found out.

All I can say is, is that if anyone in that area knows of a scout hut or similar and we can arrange a day, then I would come up. It doesn't have to be anything very clever, just a few wargamers in a hut somewhere.

I suppose that means that you'll just have to come to MOAB instead, Richard.

I live a couple of blocks from the venue and we have a couple of spare couches, so I can put you up here.

;)

Does anyone know what the original venue were charging?

I can get a very nice school hall within easy walking distance of an excellent village pub for £150 for an entire weekend.

I currently run a gaming weekend there each Easter. I'm sure a Lardy Day instead or as well would be doable.

Musing on a South Yorkshire Lard Day sometime in 2018, Junction 37 of the M1 (the Dodworth/Barnsley one, for those in the know) might tick most of the boxes: 3 hotels within a mile (2 with function/meeting rooms), with 2 Indian restaurants and a couple of cooking lager pubs within staggering distance. Only potential downside might be public transport but the Barnsley interchange is only a short taxi ride away.

I'll see what I can find out, then me, Fred, Counterpane etc need to get together and pool our efforts, preferably over a pint or two.

As long as it's not a pint of cooking lager...
