Crusade 2022 Show – Cancellation

Crusade 2022 Show – Cancellation

It is with great sadness that we have had to cancel Crusade 2022 Wargames Show. here is a note from our show organiser:

Fellow gamers,

After careful consideration and discussion with our venue, it is with deep regret that we have to announce the cancellation of Crusade 2021. There is simply too much uncertainty associated with the current Coronavirus situation and there seems little prospect of large indoor gatherings/events taking place in the foreseeable future.

We’re really grateful for all your continuing support during these difficult times and look forward to welcoming you back in 2022 where, provisionally, Crusade 22 will take place on Saturday 29th January (ie our regular last Saturday in January slot).

For those individuals/businesses that were good enough to provide us with advance payment/deposits, we will be in touch separately to establish your preferences where we are happy to provide a refund in full or rollover payment toward the next show.

Take care folks and enjoy your gaming whenever/where ever you can (subject to staying safe and following appropriate guidelines).

Thank you.

Penarth & District Wargames Society

PDWS Re-Opens – Its Good To Be Back Gaming

Well, what an 18 months it has been in the world. Let alone the wargaming world. Chaos, loss and hope at the end of it all. But for Penarth & District Wargames Society, like many other clubs, it has been quite an experience.

Gaming stopped in May 2020 and we had to cancel the Crusade Wargames Show. But through it all our members endeavoured to persevere. Using Zoom, text and WhatsApp to keep in touch. This was very important, having some single and older, vulnerable members.

But now we are delighted to be back in person and wargaming at Glyndwr Hall, Penarth. Obviously with conditions such as face coverings and pre-booking. But having the human contact and the buzz of rolling those dice again has been fabulous.

Penarth & District Wargames Society has had a variety of wargames on the go:

Sword and Spear – both ancients and fantasy (15mm)
Nothag in 10mm the newish rules from Plastic Soldier Company
Picketts Charge ACW in 15mm (Riessewitz Press via Too Fat Lardies)
Napoleonic Naval
Check Your Six
Infamy! Infamy! (Too Fat Lardies again)

We have been busy bees.

It is too early to make predictions on Crusade 2022 yet. Winter is coming and we are at the instruction of the Welsh Assembly as to what restrictions will be in force.  But we will try to keep you all informed as much as possible

But if you want to, or are interested in joining Penarth & District Wargames Society then contact us through our Facebook Page – click here. We can arrange a pre-planned visit.

In the meantime enjoy some pictures of our games we have put on recently.
