Hammerhead are hoping to be running the show first weekend in March next year. I have registered us to put on a game without being specific at the moment - any suggestions for a game.

And I quote:

QuoteUpdate: December 2020
Hammerhead 2021 has been moved to Saturday 31st July.
The extremely welcome news that there will be a mass immunisation program for CV-19 rolled out over the next weeks and months, has at last created the certain belief that the wargame shows will be able to resume once again.
It has been obvious for a while with the current progress of the pandemic, that the March 6th date for Hammerhead is too early for the show to function in a normal way and follow the necessary guidelines to ensure the health and wellbeing of everyone in attendance. So many people have put so much time and effort in creating the fantastic range of participation games for the Hammerhead shows, that rather than simply cancelling the show, we wanted to move it to a future date when 'normality' has returned. It is our sincere belief that by the end of July next year a mass vaccination program will have delivered the safe environment necessary for Hammerhead 2021 to go ahead, hopefully without the current compulsory social distancing, facemasks etc.
The date of Hammerhead 2021 is Saturday 31st July.
Both venues have been booked and we will be contacting traders and game presenters in due course. We would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for the tremendous help, encouragement and support we have received over the last seven years that Sally has been organising Hammerhead. Now that we have a new date for the show, we will work hard to make this 'Summer Hammerhead' a true celebration of our hobby!

Fingers and toes crossed for this to happen. Presume you could continue with the previous planned game ?

The provisional plan is to take something that we can pull off the shelf and run on minimal prep, so that if the show gets cancelled we're not wasting time and if we we're only allowed to get together a couple of weeks before the show we're good - current plan per Grahame's suggestion is the 54mm HYW game, as it hasn't been to Hammerhead.
