Game masters are asked to arrive by 9am to set up.

Most games will be played twice, so players will have the chance to play at least two games, possibly three.
We have the hall all day, so play can continue until 6 or 7 or beyond if need be.
Post-battle rendezvous in The Plough is encouraged (they serve good food).

Ł5 entry on the door.
Tea/coffee and biscuits provided.
Bring a packed lunch or go to The Plough.
