29th Beer & Pretzels Games Weekend 19th/20th May 2018
By Sally

At Burton Town Hall

All the usual fun and games, food and beer.

Tickets in advance £5 per day, £10 for both
on the door £7 per day, £12 for both.

First, the good news: The bar providers have promised not to run out of beer this year - and if we do need emergency supplies, Burton Bridge Brewery will send it over by cab instead of me having to fetch it. From the kitchen there will be the usual tea, coffee and hot and cold food.

The bad news: The return of the dreaded parking permits (pick up on arrival), with only 45 spaces anyway round the back of the Town Hall. However, there are plenty of viable options including free parking near the shop, which is a 15 minute walk away Call us for suggestions/directions.

Bring and Buy: To get the monster back under control, we are running it Saturday only, 7 1/2% will go to RNLI and 7 1/2% to Instant Armies who heroically man it. If the extra 5% commission scares people off, we will have more space for playing games! We will also bring a small selection of bargains from the shop.

John Martin will have his usual participation game, but only on Sunday this year. As always, playing space is guaranteed, and specific requirements can be swiftly met. The only requirement is that if you take up loads of space, it needs to involve loads of people. We are not planning any organized tournaments, but if anyone would like to organise one just get in touch.

There has been a big resurgence of roleplaying this year, so I anticipate a few sessions being organised, with the player recruitment area in its traditional position in front of the stage.

Monthly Gaming at the Shop 2nd Sunday of every month
By Sally
Starts at 12 noon 'til late.

We have plenty of tables for playing board games and card games, and a bit of wargames space too. New players welcome as well as our normal friendly regulars, and a large games library on site. The Burton Bridge Brewery is just over the road for those who want a pint with their game, tea and coffee are free at the shop and Aldi and Family Bargains are close by for those who want snacks.

Parking at the supermarket is still restricted on Sundays and the council car parks still charge, but there is plenty of legal on road parking and other good alternatives nearby, ask for advice.
