Games Day!

Date: Saturday 6th April 2013
Time: 10am til 10pm
Venue: Highfields Church

Although we had planned to hold the games day in march, a couple of work related things came up for me and Pete so I've now booked the Chapel at Highfields Church for Saturday 6th April 2013.

Anyone is welcome, you don't have to be Welsh. The games vary from the hard core to the very, very lite most people bring their own.

We will be meeting in a church Chapel, which is nice and warm with great facilities (kitchen, toilets).

The entrance fee with be £4.00 (£2.00 for children) payable on the doay. Me and Pete are running this games day as a charity event to fundraise for our chosen charity STEPS. So we're going to save up the money to hire the venue and all the proceeds from the entrance fees will go charity. So if you'd like to donate more than £4.00 for your entrance fee, the money will be greatly appreciated.

Our little girl Naomi was born with a clubfoot and was also diagnosed with developmental dysplasia of the hip at 6 weeks old. STEPS gave us invaluable support and advice and we wouldn't have been able to get Naomi the treatment she needed without their support. You can read more about the STEPS charity at their website - http://www.steps-charity.org.uk/

If you are worried about food there are a lot of restaurants and take-outs in the area. We do provide some snacks and drinks for a small fee and all the money spent on refreshments will also be given to charity.

If you can make this date please contact me, or leave a comment. I'll also be e-mailing people and I think putting up a facebook event, if I can figure out how to do such a thing.

The address:

Highfields Church,
Monthermer Road,
Cardiff,
CF24 4QW.

P.S. You obviously don't have to be there at 10am you can just come for the evening. PLEASE THUMB THIS THREAD SO OTHERS SEE IT!

See you all there.

I'll probably just be taking small games that I can fit in a backpack with me.

I'll be there. Bringing anything from my collection on request, otherwise it's Agricola, Catacombs and perhaps another attempt to play Warrior Knights.

Myself and Sian will also be there and this day works best for us anyway, both the dates in March would have been awkward for their own ways but we would have been there.

Matt another maths trade is always welcome too!

PS Calvin, is Welsh life so great you just can't leave?

Pretty much.

Gondor is pretty much finished now, although I think painting these titchy models is making me go blind!

I'll get the Math trade going a bit closer to the date I think, it's a bit far off to be worrying about that just yet.
