Just a big thankyou to everyone who attended our latest event and helped make it yet another fun day of gaming.

It is still hard to believe that an idea dreamt up in a pub 12 years ago led to our first event Dec 29th 2007 in a cold church hall which was a trial and none of us was sure if it would work out.
Now here we are 45 events and 2 venue changes later and still going.

I have to thank my fellow organisers for all the hard effort they have all put in over the years and continue to do so in order to put this event togther 4 times a year. Also the event has survived in no small part due to the "regulars" who keep coming back as well as a constant stream of new people who manage to find their way to our little shindig.

Thanks to you all for supporting us and helping Raiders survive for all this time enabling everyone to have a safe, friendly environment in which to meet and play games together.

See you all again on the 22nd June four our 47th event :)  +:coffee=+::coffee:
