June Update

  A new committee was elected in the clubs AGM. Each member of the committee looks forward to helping continue the great gaming and atmosphere of the club.

  The Painting Tattoo was run for the night. Congratulations to the winners of each category. See the photos for more details.

  The club continues to run competitions to support some of favourite game systems. The first South Australian Guild Ball competition, The Kick Off, is being run in August. Another Lightspeed episode for X-Wing is running in September and a Kings of War competition is being held in November.

  Finally preparations are under way for the 2015 Open Day to be run on October 25th. The games are starting to line up and the second hand stall is filling up with donated stock. This will be another great day for the club.

  The club will have some displays running at Little Wars on July 11th. We look forward to seeing you there.

  We are running a BBQ at Parafield Bunnings on July 18th. Come down to grab a snag and say hi to the club members.

Busy with Gaming

  The club has had lots of gaming activity already this far into 2015. February saw Dathus X being run, a Warhammer 40K tournament that saw 38 competitors playing over Feb 14th and 15th. The event was won by Jarryd Wucherpfennig with his Dark Eldar. The Lightspeed competition was run on March 14th for X-Wing with the Imperials winning and Michael Buckley taking the best pilot championship. The next Warhammer competition, MonkeyCon,  is scheduled in April while another Lightspeed will appear at the end of the year. There is likely to also be at least another Malifaux competition.

  Inside the club the ongoing Warhammer 40K competition has seen many players coming in. An ANZAC themed series of battles are planned for the end of April. Members are interested in seeing Infinity grow in the club with a slow grow league.

  As always people also have a large range of games to select from and the club is happy to help everyone learn or share their favourite systems.
