A few weeks ago whilst tidying JJ's wargame cave I discovered some old pictures taken in the days before digital cameras ruled the earth. The pictures were of games that the club has attended at other venues ranging from the Wargames Holiday Centre in Scarborough, as it was in those days, to Colours at the Hexagon in Reading.
I have posted a few shots of club members present and past, plus some shots of the games we have played over the years as a club.
First up an AWI game staged at Colours in the Hexagon at Reading, where we put on a demo game of the Siege of Gloucester Point opposite Yorktown using an early computer version of "Iron Duke".
Check out the old DOS black and white lap top behind Gary in the picture below.

And all because he was bored watching the Confederates manoeuvring to his front.

The pub at Warrington was also the venue for our big 20mm re fight of the D-Day British beaches running from Sword to Gold. This was a massive game and took a lot of curry and beer to get through. Happy Days.

As you can see our club is all about having fun with the great hobby that is wargaming.
