We'll be running with all relevant covid-secure restrictions in place at the time the event is held. In entering you are agreeing to abide by such rules.

If we find that all games in any round are concluded within the time limit we will try and crack on and start the subsequent rounds a bit earlier so we can all get away sooner.
If you have a playing mat of the correct dimensions please bring it along!
Venue – The Scala Hall, Brixham, Devon, TQ5 8TA.
Brixham is a picturesque seaside town on the south coast of Devon, home to England's busiest fishing port as well as a host of great pubs and restaurants. It's about 45 minutes south of Exeter, so both the M5 and A303 will take you pretty much straight there from most points in Britain (or the A38 from further West).
The Scala Hall is right next to the bus station at the end of both of Brixham's main streets (Fore Street and Middle Street). There is a large car park in the middle of Brixham which irritatingly has a 3 hour limit, so the best bet is to park up at your accommodation and walk to the hall if you can. There is free on-street parking on residential streets in Brixham, but they can be both steep and narrow and spaces can be hard to find and tricky to get into. The all-day paid car park in Brixham is the Breakwater, which is a 10 minute-or-so walk away along the harbourside.
The venue will be open from 8:30 am, and if you have a hefty 28mm army you should be able to pull up outside to unload (if you do so quickly!)
We will have tea and coffee making facilities at the venue, but there are also some fantastic cafe's and coffee takeaways only steps away from the venue - The Curious Kitchen, Port Expresso and The Larder to name but three.
Brixham has loads of great pubs and restaurants for the evenings, and if there is suffisient interest we may even organise a "team meal" at a local seafood + steak restaurant - just let us know in the booking form if you are interested.
For accommodation there are a good number of hotels and B&B's in Brixham so off-season availability and prices should be good, which you can find online. Steve Price runs the newly refurbished Station Guest House in nearby Churston by then too, so feel free to contact him about room bookings
Self catering is also a good option, with a huge number of holiday let properties available right in the centre of town for as short as 2 or 3 nights - ideal if a few of you are travelling down together. Some of the local letting agencies that offer short stays are Brixham Holiday Homes and Brixham Cottages. The rates on self catering accommodation work out much better if you stay an extra night or so (cleaning is a fixed price cost for the owners) - there is plenty to do around the area if you do want to add a day or so, or if you and your clubmates just want to sit in a cottage living room playing some board games and going to the pub for a few days!

With almost a full year to go I'm sure you can beg, borrow, steal or - god forbid - buy and paint up something for both of these periods, but if you are struggling please let me know as I have enough lead (and plastic) to loan several armies in both scales and themes if needed.
Happy Fish & Chip eating!
