Anzac Cup, Canberra 21-22 April

Plush chairs, maps , light tables and sand trays, efficent WAAFs and crusty Admirals , curtained windows and scrambled phones...the place to talk about the annual big game and those sort of events...and all the recruiting and planning of such

Anzac Cup, Canberra 21-22 April

Post by Ken1967 » Sun Feb 18, 2018 8:42 am

The Australian Defence Force Wargaming Association will stage their annual Anzac Cup in Canberra this year from 21-22 April at EPIC (same venue as Cancon).

A number of games on offer, including introduction of 6mm Team Yankee and Napoleon at War (18mm).

See http://www.adfwga.com/anzac-cup

We're still working out details of the NAW event at moment.

It's been and gone and we had a blast. Very well organised by the Australian Defence Force Wargaming Assn.

Will post some pics of the action over next couple of days.

We only had four players for Napoleon at War - and to be honest, I'm at a loss of how to get players out of the garage and to a convention.

We are planning it for Wintercon, but the response has been pretty underwhelming; to the point I'm not investing any more in it - and can't even get players to publicly comment on the FB page let alone complete registration. (For my part, I like the energy of the convention, and with rugby and other commitments - playing mid week or on odd weekends don't work for me).

I've signed up for Mortem et Glorium.

For rest of events at Anzac Cup; healthy attendance in a number of Sci-Fi and 40K style games. Over 100 players at the AC.
