After a discussion with my fellow committee members, a review of the current state of things, and following the example set by many other clubs, we are sorry to announce that the club will not continue with meetings on Mondays at present. Additionally, the Wednesday evening 'open house' I am running will stop.

Obviously we will review these decisions on a regular basis, and communicate the status of our discussions as things develop. We are hopeful that things will resume before we get too far into the summer, and as things stand we see no reason that Hereward Wargames Show will not go ahead.

We have informed St. Johns that we will be suspending our use of the building on Mondays for the immediate future.

We will keep in regular touch on the forums and our Facebook page, and would encourage everyone else to do the same. If you wish (on your own assessment of personal and familial risk and exposure to the virus), to arrange games with other members of the club, please feel free to use the Monday Night Games threads to do so.

I will shortly be announcing a Discord server available for general gaming chat, arranging games and voice/video chat if people wish to use it. (Not specifically for the club.)

Mike, not enjoying being a responsible adult.

If members wish to borrow club scenery, please contact the committee by the usual means, as Colin and I have keys to the storeroom, and some scenery (most of the Dead's Army stuff, the bocage, and the Stalingrad buildings) currently resides at my house.

Mike - many thanks for this, good communication for us outriders.
Just a bit concerned you are being a responsible adult.
I hope it is reversible.

Mike has had these symptoms before, but they are brief and he soon recovers to his normal self. (the being an adult)
