Naval Wargames Weekend

Naval Wargames Weekend, Explosion Museum, Gosport, UK, August 27th-28th

The Naval Wargames Society and the Explosion Museum of Naval Firepower are holding a weekend of naval wargaming at the museum in Gosport over the weekend of the August Bank Holiday, 27th – 28th 2011. Plenty of space and tables are available and there should be room for upwards of ten tables available of varying sizes.  There is also a large outdoor area where it is hoped a WW2 surface action will be played out using 1/600 models and a 1/600 “ground scale” for some of the weekend. Space is available in the museum grounds for camping over the weekend. 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  at the naval museum - nh "at" pnbpt "dot" co "dot" uk or me.
