The Naval Wargames Society and the Explosion Museum of Naval Firepower in Gosport are holding a weekend of naval wargaming over the late summer Bank Holiday weekend (27-28 August). There should be room for upwards of ten tables of varying sizes and there is also a large outdoor area where it is hoped a WWII surface action will be played out using 1/600 models for some of the weekend. Space is available in the museum grounds for camping over the weekend and admission to the museum for the weekend will be free for those running games. The aim of the event is to provide a forum where naval (and other) gamers can come together to run and/or play in each others’ games. Games can be as long or as short as you like, and the intention is to include a few participation games so that members of the public can join in too. The emphasis is on gaming and there is no formal trade element (not this year, at least). However, if there are any traders who would like to attend they would be more than welcome – please contact Nick Hewitt for details of arrangements. For more details, or to book a table for a game for all or part of the weekend please contact Nick Hewitt firstname.lastname@example.org or David Manley email@example.com
