SELWG update (with a change of venue):

“With the seemingly positive announcements in recent days around COVID vaccinations and unlocking, I wanted to drop you all a quick email to let you know that the SELWG committee will be making a decision by the end of March as to whether to proceed with planning our annual show this year or not.  We very much hope that the timetable set out by the Prime Minister a few weeks ago is maintained, and that we will be able to proceed, but want to wait a little longer before putting the wheels in motion.
We have already secured a booking for our show - to run at Lee Valley Sports Centre  (61 Meridian Way, Edmonton, London, N9 0AR) on 17th October 2021. Please do pencil us in to your diaries!!!

Whilst this year will take us out of South East London, and the usual home of both our show and club, it does mean we no longer have to deal with Crystal Palace Sports Centre, which SELWG members, traders, gaming clubs and punters alike agree is well past its best!”

Here’s hoping 🤞

Carronade in Falkirk is normally at the start of May. However, having just checked their website they're moving it to September 25th this year

Fingers crossed :D

It is with great regret that we have to announce that Crisis 2021 will not be happening. The pandemic situation without clear view on what will be possible in November and under which conditions such as, how many are allowed through the door, will there be a possibility to organise the kind of shows we had in the past where, let's face it, social distancing is not happening at all. Not knowing if any travelling will be able. Will catering be possible ? The simple calcullation between cost and worst case scenario revenue, make it unwise to organise a Crisis in 2021. On top of that the Brexit situation with more than 50% of the traders that are usually attending no longer able to do so without huge customs problems doesn't make it any easier either. Let's hope that 2022 is a better year on November 5th (I know Guy Fawkes night). And who knows a change in UK politics.
Keep safe

Colours 2021 cancelled

Dear wargamer,

It is with great reluctance that the club  has decided that it cannot run Colours 2021.

We have tried to hold on as long as we could in the hope that things would have normalised, but we have reached the point where we needed to make a decision to either proceed or not. Obviously, we have to make the safety of our attendees, our traders and our club members our highest priority. Government policy on large events is still shaping so we have no idea that a 1500 person attendance would be possible. We also have the challenge that we've not met as a club in over a year, and need to ensure we have sufficient members to roster the show.

For specific questions on trade bookings please contact our trade rep. who's details you should have. In short you will have the choice to a refund or can carry over your booking to 2022. We have made a booking for the Race Course in 2022 and really want to put on a show for you.
