Gettysburg Weekend Game, 18-20th October 2013.

Postby Peeler » Mon May 13, 2013 3:00 pm

One of my local gaming chums, Alex - some of you met him at Ayton - has asked me to put up this advert for an ACW weekend game which he is putting on in October, at his hotel. I can confidently say it will be a right good do, and I think that spaces may go quickly. Any specific questions, please contact Alex direct.

GETTYSBURG 1863 - WARGAME WEEKEND SCARBOROUGH, 18-20th OCTOBER 2013
Alex, with help, is organising and conducting a wargaming refight of the Battle of Gettysburg 1863, at his hotel , using the DBACW game system. The weekend will be well organised, with quality hotel accommodation and a great 3 day battle, to be fought in the hotel, to a ‘result’.
Teaching of the rules and battle training will be given as necessary.

Where:
The Alexander Hotel, 33 Burniston Rd,
Scarborough, North Yorkshire YO12 6PG
Tel: 01723 363178
http://www.alexanderhotelscarborough.co.uk

Cost:
For the full weekend, the price includes: Gaming from Friday Evening until Sunday Lunch Time, full en-suite accommodation for 2 nights, with Full English Breakfast, Morning Snack, Lunch and Afternoon Snack each day.
Evening Meals will be organised and paid for separately.
Total Cost is £110 or £50 if without accommodation, to be paid on arrival.
(It’s cheap, but he’s in it for the fun)
The Game:
The game will be fought on a 10ft x 5ft purpose made table, accurately representing the whole battlefield of Gettysburg on a scale of 15” = 1 Mile.
20mm figures will be used for the game. A well-researched Orbat has been produced, reflecting the numbers & quality of the troops and their commanders, with one infantry unit representing 1000 men and every Division & Corps accurately represented. All 3 historical days will be played over a period of 100 game turns (achievable with DBACW). Logistics and Supply will be a feature of the game.

If you would like to attend, then email Alex Testo on atjt.testo@yahoo.co.uk or call on 01723 363178.

Thanks for the prod, Mr P.

I had hoped to get along to this event but I think I really should wind my neck in. Pitty because it sounds like fun.

I'm a sucker for your prodding! I'll talk it over with the wife (the trip, not the prodding. That can be our little secret - Mrs EB may not understand).

Come on EB, if you set off in August you'll have found the place by October. Probably. :-)
I've signed up for this one as it sounds like a good event, the cost is very reasonable, and for once there won't be a pre-game painting frenzy beforehand as Alex is providing everything!

I've been and gone and done it - or at least I've asked Alex whether there's any spaces left. Mrs EB is being vey understanding although I suspect this is going to cost greatly.

No painting is very attractive I have to say.

I'd pack a range of bases and some double sided tape, just in case.

:) good to see a good prodding had the desired effect. Feeding & drinking may well take place in Scarborough town fleshpots.

Oh yes. Lots of fleshpot eateries. Lots of fleshpot pubs. Lots of fleshpot clubs. When we've done all them we can stagger through Fleshpot Alley back to the hotel bar to finish up.

Of course Peeler just knows them professionally, not as a client or anything.

Gaynor & her fiends don't have clients - they have victims.

Do I detect a degree of x( ?

Anyway, I understand Scarborough has some very nice evening entertainments which are more appropriate to my age and which won't upset Mrs EB (should she ever find out). You will find me there, and certainly not in some dark and dingy bar being prodded by Mr Peeler with Mr World to Dave cheering him on.
