Lots to get through today!
On Saturday 31st January, we will be in the hall at St Chads on Campleshon Road YO23 1EY in York (the same location as August’s extra meet). We’ll run from 10am to 10pmish and there will be a lot of games to play and lots of fun for all. Paul will be running the Blue Meeple Cafe again, selling food and drink. There will be a Games Bring & Buy sale all day and we will skim cash off all sellers. But the main focus is having a fun day playing games of all sorts.
Bring some games to play, bring some games to sell, bring some cash to spend and bring your friends. It’s a large venue, we can host a lot of people, bring your friends.
The entry fee is £1 from 10am-5pm and £1 from 5pm-10pm and £2 if you stop all day. We expect you to be honest! The venue has disabled access and there is a disabled toilet.
The Games Bring & Buy sale will let people set out their games for sale with a price list. Do not put stickers all over stuff, it just damages the games and they fall off. Just write out a clear list of what you are selling and if you want a minimum offer. For each item sold, the club will take £1 from the seller or 10% whichever is the higher amount, to go to our charity pot. If the seller would like to give more of the sale in a discrete confidential fashion, that’s your choice. As long as you give the minimum £1/10%, we won’t be disclosing anything and we ask you not to either. Anything not sold needs to be taken back at the end of the day. Buyers and sellers, bring your own carrier bags.
St Chads is on Campleshon Road just off the Bishopthorpe Road, close to the Millennium Bridge. There are some off-street parking spaces and plenty on street. Some buses run down Campleshon Road (#11, #21, #26) and there are many more frequent buses running down Tadcaster Road. If you’re coming by train, it’s a fair walk down. We suggest getting a bus from the station (#4 is frequent) and get off at the Knavesmire Road (ask the driver to call out at the Newington Hotel). If you miss that stop, get off as soon as you see the Knavesmire and walk across the boggy grass.
Tonight (Wednesday 28th January) at 7pm in the Bar Convent is our AGM, where we will be mostly be voting in new members to the committee. Come along if you’re interested in helping out, or want to have your say in who is helping out! All those that attend BM! are welcome to attend the AGM.
On Saturday 28th February, ConSummation 3 is running in Sheffield. All day gaming, bring and buy sale, bake for Heroes: eat cake and drink tea, and stay late for beer and the Ceilidh. There’s a flyer and a facebook event to check out for full details.
And finally, on Saturday 21st February, there may be some special events for a significant birthday…
