The 2015 Winter Challenge - Welcome to N3 Third Edition!
The first UK Third Edition event! Following on from the Autumn Challenge 'preparation for N3' event we will get to play with all the new rules! This will be a fun weekend to introduce new and old players to the rules, with tutorials, a seminars and demo games on Saturday followed by a tournament day on Sunday.
Saturday - Intro/Training
This will be a day geared towards new players and people who want to learn more about the game and background. On top of the usual demo games, advice sessions and scenarios there will be a seminar on third edition.

There will be a painting comepition for 1-3 models on a linked theme. Judging will be by a select panel. All decisions by the judging panel will be final.
Sunday - Tournament Day

Sunday 25 Jan 2014, 9:30am through to about 6:00pm.

The Exeter District Scouts' HQ in Marsh Barton, Exeter, Devon. The venue has free WIFI and a fully-fitted kitchen including free tea and coffee and is on the southern edge of Exeter, about ten minutes from the end of the M5.
I'm offering free floor space for around ten people on a first-come-first-served basis, in Dawlish which is a 20 minute drive from the venue. There will also be some floor space available in Newton Abbot, also about 20 minutes away.
Some previous attendees have stayed at St. Andrews Hotel (ten minute walk) and recommended it.
Apart from free tea and coffee, no food or drink is included in the ticket. There is a McDonalds drive-thru and a Costa about 300m up the road and a big Sainsbury nearby (5m drive, 10-15m walk).
For dinner on Saturday evening we usually book a big table at the Seven Stars pub, a five minute walk from the venue.
You're also welcome to bring along packed lunches and use the kitchen to heat up food as long as you tidy up behind you!
