Bolton all-day gaming 18 September 2011

Filed under: — Garry @ 6:19 pm

The next gaming event in the calendar is an all-day gaming session from the GNOME guys. Here’s the lowdown:

Gamers North of Manchester England (GNOME) are holding another of our famous and increasingly popular all-dayers on Sunday 18th September 2011 at St Mary’s Church Hall, Horwich. Access to the car park is from Richmond st (BL6 5QT for you Satnavvies). Doors open at 10:30AM 11AM and we need to be out by 11PM.

As previously, we have the hall to ourselves and the bar is open from 12 Noon to 11PM. There are shops and takeaways within easy walk but we will be providing some light grub at around 6PM to keep you going.

Everyone is welcome of course, from newbies to old hands and including kids (so long as they are gamers and not run-around-and-knock-things-over-ers). Bring your own games or come and play ours. Over 70 gamers turned up last time (despite an emergency change of venues, promise it won’t happen again this time) and there is a genuinely friendly atmosphere.

Entry is £3 (£1 for under 16s) which includes free hotpot/soup at 6:00PM. There is no such thing as a free lunch, but consider this a free tea (or free dinner for any soft Southerners out there).

More information can be found on this BGG thread, including a list of expected attendees.

Bolton All-Day Gaming 27th March 2011

Filed under: — Garry @ 9:47 am

The next Bolton Games Day is only a couple of weeks away. Here are the main details from Chris (boltongeordie):

Gamers North of Manchester England (GNOME) are holding another of our famous all-dayers on Sunday 27th March 2011 at St Mary’s Church Hall, Horwich. Access to the car park is from Richmond st (BL6 5QT for you Satnavvies). Doors open at 10:30AM and we need to be out by 11PM.

As previously, we have the hall to ourselves and the bar is open from 12 Noon to 11PM. There are shops and takeaways within easy walk but we will be providing some light grub at around 6PM to keep you going.

Everyone is welcome of course, including kids (so long as they are gamers and not run-around-and-knock-things-over-ers). Bring your own games or come and play ours.

Entry is £3 (£1 for under 16s) which includes free hotpot/soup at 6:00PM. There may be better deals out there, there may be more for less, but before you know it they have hit you up for airport taxes, a £10 sandwich and of course with the taxi into town from that airport you have never heard of which turns out to be 50 miles away maybe it wasn’t such a great deal after all.

If you’re interested in going along, you can let Chris know and see who else is attending in this BGG thread.
