Big Announcement: NSEG To Meet twice monthly in 2012

Post by westgarthworldwide » Wed Sep 07, 2011 10:50 pm

The Northern Suburbs Euro-Games collective is proud to announce that we will be hosting a games day on the second and fourth Sunday of every month in 2012.

The venue is the Jika Jika Community Centre, corner Plant and Union Streets in Northcote (Westgarth). It is very close to the #86 tram in High Street as well as Westgarth Station, Merri Station and the #250/#251 buses stopping in Westgarth Street.

Attendance cost will be a minimal $3 per head. The venue is booked from 11-6, it will be a matter of negotiation and dependent largely on other bookings whether we can play later than this.

First meeting is Saturday 12th of November, please see other posting.

Power tends to isolate those who hold too much of it. Eventually, they lose touch with reality... and fall.

It is fair - there is no reserved parking, but there are usually spots free in Pearl Street opposite the aged care place, a few around the station, more around Dennis station etc.

Can give you an idea I hope.

The dates for next year should be all OK - so they tell me. The meetings this year (2nd Sunday of October, November and December) should be fine too except they have a booking in November but I am hoping we can use the smaller hall on that date - I am going to see them on Monday with our booking paperwork.

Count me in.

I'm in Clifton Hill and know the jika halls very well.
(theres been a standing booking of both halls for a singing and support group from 6pm- I' m surprised you snaffled it,

but the possibility is there for some good bbqs in the better weather

I also play at the KOST in fairfield on Fridays

Yes, it is a great venue. There is also plenty of scope for people to bring their younglings provided they have some level of appropriate supervision. It operates as a child care center most week days so it is a fairly safe environment for kids.

Hi,

Second Sunday in November is the Board Game Meet at the Celtic Club, with Competitions for ( I think) Dominion and Carcasonne, and also free gaming. I think we should just cancel Northcote for that month, and go into the city. Might also be a good chance to advertise.

I go to some of the meet-ups and cafe games groups , I also know that not everyone wants to game at pubs, some of the downsides are
1- risk to games due to drink spillage or greasy food.
2- High cost of refreshments as you can't BYO.
3- Poor lighting due to pub "mood" lighting.
So I don't think we need to necessarily cancel, although we could postpone, up to whatever people want really, just my 2c worth.
On the upside it's been fun meeting newbies and introducing them to Euros.

I believe Gin was referring to the Australian Games Expo tournaments, with open gaming after 5pm on Sat 12 and Sun 13 Nov, it's not an official "meetup" thing.

No reason we can't have both: We could still play in Northcote on Sunday, 11-6 (or finish earlier), and whoever is interested can just go to the Celtic Club in the evening.
