    PAWS has its own Yahoo! Group, PAWSlist.

Who we are, where & when we meet and what we do

Dates for July to December 2019

Posted by portsmouthwargames on June 30, 2019

Pompey’s fixture list for 2019-2020 has been published, so the PAWS dates for the rest of the year have been set.

But first, one of the meetings previously announced for July has been cancelled. The meeting on 13th July will not now take place as we don’t expect enough players to turn up. So there will only be one meeting in July 2019, on the 27th.

The remaining meetings will be on those Saturdays when Pompey do not have a Home fixture, as follows:

August 3rd, 17th & 31st
September 14th & 21st
October 5th, 19th & 26th
November 9th, 23rd & 30th, and
December 14th

This means that the 2019 Autumn DBA (Armies and Enemies of the Sassanids in the 6th Century AD) will definitely be on September 21st as originally planned but we will have to move the Winter DBA, originally planned for December 7th, forward or back by a week.

We still plan to hold the English DBA Open 2019 on Sunday 27th October.

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.

We really are on the move this time

Posted by portsmouthwargames on May 11, 2014

The PAWS Summer DBA on May 31 will be the last meeting at The Southsea Community Centre. Usual time, 2.00 pm.

From June, we are moving to The Stacey Centre on the other side of Portsmouth.

The first Saturday meeting there will be on June 14th.

A map showing where the Stacey Centre is on their website at http://www.staceycentre.org.uk/contact_us.shtml

The centre has it’s own car park. For those going by train, the nearest station is Fratton.

As the best route to The Stacey Centre from outside Portsmouth is along Eastern Road, we have decided to start meetings there an hour earlier, from 1.00 pm to avoid hitting the traffic going to Pompey FC.

Old site reappears

Posted by portsmouthwargames on January 10, 2010

I’ve now copied the old Geocities site to a Tripod account.

It can be found at http://portsmouthwargames.tripod.com/

At present it is at the same state it was when Geocities closed, but I will update it in the future.
