Just a reminder that the Society of Ancients Battle Day will take
place on Saturday 1 April at the Sycamore Hall, Drayton Road, Bletchley,
near Milton Keynes, MK2 3RR.
As usual, we will have many groups present re-fighting the same
battle but using their favoured set of rules and their interpretation.
This year the battle is Arsuf, where Richard the Lionheart takes on
Saladin. You would be very welcome to come along and join one of the games
- the organisers of the games are always dependent on players turning
up on the day and joining their games, so please do come along and make a
day of it.
The action starts around 9am, and we start with a presentation on the
battle and the controversial aspects of it. Then we go to play the
games. The day finishes around 4:30pm though some games play on longer
to a finish.
The cost of the day, contributing to hall and tables hire, is £10. Juniors and students are free.
Note there is no food available on site, though there are a couple of
corner shops selling sandwiches just around the corner! We do, however,
supply unlimited tea, coffee and biscuits.
It would be good to see you there - please come and support the Society. It's a great day out.
