Move latest

Posted by portsmouthwargames on January 26, 2019

We have now completely moved out of the Stacey Centre in Southsea. We have moved all of the club’s assets to Fort Cumberland with the Forgotten Veterans. We still need to get ourselves sorted out there, but we should have use of a good sized room that has only recently been redecorated.

Not a good start to the year but we have already had to change the date for the Late Spring DBA tournament. It will now be held one week later, on Saturday 18 May 2019.

PAWS Tournaments 2019

Posted by portsmouthwargames on January 20, 2019

The good news is that we now have dates for this year’s PAWS tournaments (including the English DBA Open).

The bad news is there will be one fewer that recent years.

For reasons already outlined previously, we are having to move venue at short notice. The current plan is that we will now be playing in Fort Cumberland as guests of a Veterans charity who are based on the site. Assuming there are no problems we will be moving next month. So we will not have a tournament in March as usual, but will have Late Spring, Autumn and Winter themed tournaments using slightly different rules for theme choice.

The dates for these tournaments are currently planned to be:

Late Spring PAWS DBA – Saturday 11 May 2019 now changed to Saturday 18 May 2019

Autumn PAWS DBA – Saturday 21 September 2019

English DBA Open – Sunday 27 October 2019

Winter PAWS DBA – Saturday 7 December 2019

The Autumn and winter dates will be reviewed once the 2019-2020 football fixture list are published and may be moved forward or back a week to avoid clashing with Portsmouth FC home games (as traffic will be a nightmare on those afternoons).

Only word on themes so far is that the late Spring DBA is likely to be 8th Century BC Near East.

AGM 2019

Posted by portsmouthwargames on January 6, 2019

The 2019 AGM will be on January 19th 2019 starting at 1 o’clock.

We urge anyone with an active interest in the club to attend as we may have to decide on moving to a new venue. The Stacey Centre are planning to increase our room hire cost by 85% (on top of the 50% increase last year) which we will almost certainly not be able to afford.

If anyone has any other matters that they would like to discuss, please let Lindon (or me) know beforehand.
