Possible KoW Event in Cardiff (Firestorm)

Postby DiscoKing » Fri May 27, 2016 12:09 am

Hello,

I am contemplating running a 1 day event (4 games) in Cardiff (Firestorm), perhaps in November...

There aren't many KoW events in Wales that I know of, so I thought I'd get one up & running;
If all goes well, I could go on to make either a 2 day event or more regular 1-dayers.

I'm thinking about placing it on a Saturday, mainly because I believe it'd be easier for people to either stay over & travel back the next day;
or go home afterwards & still have some form of weekend before the Monday grind starts again!
If I'm wrong let me know!

Also I'm a big fan of an active social scene, and as Cardiff is a great place to go out in;
I would encourage people to stay & partake in a few beers.

Anyway, I thought I'd post here to see if there would be any interest in such an event?
For many of you, it would be a trip to another country - So could be a mini-holiday too ;)

Comments would be appreciated,

Adam B

Sound good to me. I'd be interested, not sure I'd stay the night but certainly interested in the day event!

Sounds great! like the idea of 4 games :) November is good for me too.

(1 dayer is my preference as its difficult for me to get away for 2 day tourneys while my kids are tiny :/ )

I will link this thread to the Oxford forum to see if we can get a car full of us for this!

Definitely! I've a shed load of goblins that haven't seen a table since Age of Sigmar came along.

I'd recommend early or mid November as the BIG fancy dress xmas party is the first weekend of December :D

This has been linked to our club page in Bristol so expect a few of us.

I'm in.

November weekends are all good for me at the moment. Maybe avoid the first one (5th and 6th) as it's Bonfire Night and only two weeks after Clash of Kings, and some of us may struggle to get two KOW tourney passes in quick succession.

Would prefer a 2 dayer for distance reasons but the more events the merrier, mid-late November would be best for me x

Yeah Ed makes a good point about proximity to Clash of Kings... don't want them too close!

Mid November would be good. One-dayer would suit and as mentioned above you might get a fair few of the other Bristol crowd

Right, I've spoken to firestorm-
Theyve taken a provisional date of November 19th.

That date alright for you guys?


Would you guys want to bring your own food, or have food provided?

Each weekend in November will have Rugby on, so be wary of any hinderence for you;
Be it travel/traffic, hotels or missing the rugby!

The 19th has the following matches:
England vs. Fiji
Wales vs. Japan (This one is taking place in Cardiff)
Ireland vs. New Zealand
Scotland vs. Argentina


The main delay I've had is deciding on an event name... Lol.

Again, let me know what I can do.
Cheers :)
