    Default DONCASTER 2023

    I will discuss possible dates over the coming days, watch this space.

    I am aware Duxford is 9th and 10th of September, same weekend as the St. Leger Festival here in Doncaster.

    IF YOU CAN MAKE BOTH, VOTE TWICE PLEASE !!!

    OK so the website I looked at was wrong and Duxford is 16th/17th September, as luck would have it, this is also the Battle of Britain Memorial Weekend at the Air Museum, and the St.Leger weekend, so all the potential clashes that can affect the date of our get together seem to align on the same weekend, which in theory leaves the rest of them free.... However there are caravan club events on a couple of weekends so that leaves us the very start of September or the very end (same weekend as we have just had).. very early days I know but where does the preference sit with everyone?

    1st - 3rd September
    29th September - 1st October

    1st-3rd would be better for me and Marian as i have to be at work on a stocktake audit the last weekend

  5. #5

    Default

    I can do either, but I guess 1st-3rd to match the other votes so far!

    Later is better for us, the early date being the next weekend on from August bank holiday means life can be unnecessarily hectic, but we'll manage whatever the collective decision is

    Lest we forget

    OK I need to make a call on this. Will double check availability then update.

    I am in for both possible weekends (thank you, my dear wife), but Kubajs has some troubles with earlier date.

    OK FOLKS... following feedback on here and on a couple of WhatsApp groups and after speaking to the venue, I can confirm that DONCASTER 2023 will be the earlier weekend, that is the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of September 2023. I sincerely apologise if that rules anybody out but unfortunately I can’t find a date that everyone can attend (and guess we never will). So get your hotel rooms booked, think about what games you would like to run/play and we can move forward from here. Here’s hoping for a great turnout in 2023...

    Premier Inn website playing silly beggars at the moment, saying it can't complete the booking, so don't know if it is too early to book there yet.

    Booked in now. My new desktop seems to have built-in functionality that stops me spending money It did something similar when I tried to order some of Kevin's decals.

    I'll offer up a Spanish Civil War game for next year. It was almost ready for this year, apart from a few small details such as: no planes, no cards, no manoeuvre decks, no scenario. Other than that, it was good to go.
