As every year, we run a club sales table by reception, where members can sell their unwanted stuff, and we’ll also accept donations of items (and money!). A percentage goes to our chosen charity: this year it was the Combat Stress appeal.
We’re delighted to announce that we raised £85.65!
We had 14 entries in our X-WIng tournament, kindly sponsored by FLGS The Rift, with Luke Townsend coming out the close winner after a back and forth scrap with Miles Stevenson in his last game.
Thanks to Ed Handley for being the tournament organiser, and for the photos below.
Congratulations to our trophy winners for this year:
The Steve Frisby Memorial Trophy (for the game we as a club most wish we’d put on) went to Cheshunt Wargamers for “Mosquito Strike: Norway” – we were torn between this and at least two others.
The Nick Hawkins Memorial Trophy, for the best build, went (again, not without a little debate) to the Scimitar Wargames Group for their stunning Jerusalem 1967 table.
Congratulations to both, and indeed to everyone else for the consistently high standard of tables at this year’s show.
A particular thank you is due from the show committee to our sponsors this year. So… thank you to:
Footsore, who provided the gorgeous show hoplite miniature;
ABC Brushes, who provided prizes from their excellent range of brushes for the painting competition; and
The Rift for once again sponsoring and organising our X-Wing Tournament.
(Watch this space for winners from the latter two!)
There will hopefully be even more opportunities for sponsoring next year’s show, and our publicity team will be in touch well ahead of time.
So that’s another Hereward in the can: a year with some new faces alongside the familiar, some great games, a record for advance ticket sales, and all in all a great day.
Our thanks to everyone who came, be they traders, gamers, attendees, from Peterborough Wargames Club and the show committee. If you have any feedback you’d like to share on the show, please do fill out our feedback form, as praise and constructive criticism are what help us make this a better show.
Look out for some posts over the coming days with more pictures and our various award, tournament and competition winners. Fates willing, we’ll be back for Hereward 6 on Sunday September 6th 2020, same place, same time. See you there!
