Chaps, Barry and myself just ran a very succesful weekends gaming at this hotel and looking at the space we had available, the accomodation and helpfulness of the staff this looks a perfect venue for future game.

http://www.lundin-links-hotel.co.uk/

So far from our group, Barry, David, Peter, Colin, Angus, Charles and myself have all been there thought what a great venue it is and this would be worth discussing at our next get together in June. If we were using the room we were in at the weekend we could probably have a 45'x26' table, now that would be worth seeing. Another added advantage is that they have 3 seperate rooms we could use so we could be fighting seperate linked battles without anyone else knowing what's going on until enemy/friendly troops start arriving on your table, this could give some very interesting games and would be good for something like the 1814 campaign we are about to start on.

Cheers
Dave

I'm "game" for a change of venue. From the comments on the forum looks like the R2E weekender was a big success. Hope my French Cuirassiers got into the fray and covered themselves with glory. Their battle honours under my command so far have been "mixed" i.e. not very good.

You be reassured to know Peter that they are consistent! :wink: ....

Mixed :lol:

One unit did great work taking out Ray's beautiful 12th LD however another was bounced and routed by the Gordon Highlanders who dealt with them whilst still in line!!!! :shock:

He never came back after the Black Watch broke until the game was over to help clear up.

What do you think about a new venue?

Sounds like a great option.

For me its not really an issue - anywhere from Grimsby's a 'trek'.

Lets discuss in June.

Bob, who came up for the Waterloo weekender is from your neck of the woods and he was very impressed with the whole area and is planning a longer stay the next time he's up. If we go for this venue then you would only need to get the train to Kirkcaldy which is only about 6 miles away. I think there is a local train that gets even closer and Dave Imrie could keep you right about that as I remember him taking Angus to the station on Sunday.

Cheers
Dave

Thanks for the update - sounds fine.

Read the 'reports' on The Waterloo Weekender, seems like you had a great weekend.

If ever you feel a need to get away from it all and feel a little closer to France you could all pop over to Jersey. We have an excellent club venue (a bowls club) with plenty of space and a bar! There are also plenty of good hotels in the island too.
Cheers,
Richard

Is that you offering to fly us all over there Richard?
Very kind of you. :lol:

My parents had been over there a few times and loved the island and I have always said I would like to go one day.

Cheers
Dave
