50th Open Day Update

The Society wishes to extend a big thank you to all the guests that joined us, the display from the National Military Motor Museum and all the traders and sponsors that offered such a great range of prizes to the raffle. It’s been a big day and we’ll get all the photographs and other details up soon.

We will wish Ross Dawe congratulations of becoming the second life member for Group North. He was awarded this at the opening ceremony today and is a justified recipient of the award. Thank you Ross for all the work you’ve performed for the Society over the years, and we still look forward to working with you for many more forward.

Open Day 2022

50th Year Open Day

Group North is running our annual Open Day on September 25th. This year marks our 50th anniversary and will be an excellent chance to reconnect with gamers throughout the history of the club.

Follow along on the event page for more details, or keep up-to-date with the Facebook event.

What did we play last year?

All of the games at the club were recorded last year (or as best as possible, some may have slipped through). A game was recorded as a single table with a group of players. If the players had another try that was the same game, if the players at the table changed that was a new game.

Over the year the following game records were made (top listed games from the total play list of 51 game types and 313 plays across them):
