We’re really sorry for those of you who were trying to get on the show site after Partizan – unfortunately the server that hosts both the club and show sites decided to throw a sizeable tantrum this morning (of course). Fortunately, we have daily backups, and our chairman (who’s also our webmaster) has been moving everything to a new and faster server today.
It all seems to be back now, so you should be able to use our contact forms, and we should be able to respond to your emails.
Just in case you were thinking of booking a trade stand for Hereward, or have a form but haven’t sent it back yet? A reminder that the 10% early bird discount on stand rates ends on May 31, in just over two weeks.
If you’re interested and don’t have a form, please drop us a line at the link above, or bug Mike or Reuben (who may well be coming to bug you :D) at Partizan.
Slots are now available to book for the tabletop sale now: see the sidebar for details.
We’ve arranged things pretty much as last year. There are five one hour slots, starting at 10am, but this year we have allowed for 10 mins slack between each slot for changeover (i.e. the second slot is 11:10-12:10 and so on). If you’re booked in for the 10am slot you’ll be able to get in a little bit ahead of time to set up. We’ve left the prices as last year (weighted so the start of day slots are a little more) – please remember that your ticket purchase is for a single one hour slot.
We would ask, as a courtesy to other traders (and we’re aware our store won’t let us restrict this in software) potential traders could restrict themselves to a maximum of three slots initially.
We’re happy to announce the return of the annual X-Wing Tournament at Hereward. Organised and sponsored (as ever) by our friendly local gaming store, The Rift, there’s room for 24 players and even time to check out the show as well.
Entry is £10, including show admission, and available from the link in the right hand sidebar.
The precise details of the categories will be posted in due course, as will the judges, and the prizes, which latter are being generously donated by the lovely folks at ABC Brushes.
You will be able to bring your entries and fill out a form on the door. However, to help us gauge interest, and ensure we have enough secure display space for everyone’s entries, it would be really helpful if you could fill out this form in advance if you’re intending to enter. (We won’t hold you to it, but it will help our planning.). If you have any queries, please use the available space on the form, or drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A reminder that we are looking for games for the show (Sept 1st!). We’d very much like to place the emphasis on participation, as we believe that the show should be a place where people can get involved and try things out.
If you are interested in bringing a game to the show, there is an application form available on the site, or you can talk to us at any show we’re at (the next two are Campaign: MK and Partizan).
As usual we’ll have a great range of participation and demonstration games and traders. If you were a trader or put on a game at the show in the last couple of years, expect to hear from us in the next week.
If not, and you’re interested in running a participation or hands-on demo game, the application form is here. For trade stand applications, please drop us an email.
