Thelador posted a topic in United KingdomHey folks, so this is an event page for the GB event, which is part of the Charity Gaming day for Alan Kennedy. Sadly Alan passed away just before Christmas of 2017 and will be missed amongst many different gaming communities. After some talk between friends a group of us have came together to run a gaming event in his name, purely for charitable causes. After chatting to Alan's family, and as per his own wishes we have decided to donate to the Scottish Association for Children with Heart Disorders (SACHD).The aim of this event is to have a fun and casual gaming day for gamers of all ages to enjoy. The hope is to run both a Warmachine and Guild Ball event, both of a relaxed and fun nature, with drop in gaming consisting of tabletop games and board games for those who want to enjoy a slower pace. The day will be topped off with a charity raffle, with all proceeds going to SACHD.The event is going to be held at Common Ground Games in Stirling. Which can be found at 40 Cowane Street, Stirling, FK8 1JRThe start time for the organised play events is being moved from 9.30 to 10 for doors open. This is to allow additional travel time as it turns out the Stirling Half marathon is on on the same day. So for all attendees please do NOT approach Stirling from the Raploch/West side of the city as most of the roads from the safari park to Stirling are closed. Please approach from the east side of Stirling. If you're coming by car :-)The event being run is "Captain, My Captain!". The premise is you build a team of 5 players, 1 mascot and 4 other eligible players, and the captain is chosen at random by a random generator for each round, Folks who played in the Gaming for Laura charity event will be familiar with how this event runs.There is NO ENTRY fee to the event, having spoken with CGG owner Steve any table fees would be donated to the charity event instead. Prizes and support all round The event will be held at Common Ground Games in Stirling, with dice being rolled around 10.30am. Having spoken to the SFG Lawyers Guild, unfortunately Blacksmiths are uneligible for this event, their design (master/apprentice) is too difficult to adapt for the event. I can provide a guild if anyone wants to attend that exclusively play blacksmiths.Itinerary for the day:10.00 - Doors open10.30 - 12.30 - Round 1 for WM and GB events12.30 - 13.30 - Lunch13.30 - 15.30 - Round 215.45 - 17.45 - Round 318.00 - Raffle, prizes, etc The above times are only really for the folks playing in the organised events.
