The BHGS Challenge is moving to Oxford !
The BHGS Challenge is our second largest tournament of the year, with a 5-round (or more in some periods) competition running over the weekend of 4th/5th/6th April. This keeps the event just before Easter, and also now has been tweaked to avoid Salute!
Our previous venue of the LVA is (again...) unavailable so we are heading into English Civil War territory in 2014, to the Wheatley Campus of Oxford Brookes University in Oxford. The university is unable to offer accommodation, however there are plenty of places nearby. We are also able to offer practice and friendly game facilities on Friday night after 5pm
(Just to confuse some of you, the venue is part of the same university but on a different site to where Roll Call has been held previously)
The 2014 event will feature the following competitions
Aside from Saga, all periods will be run in the traditional Challenge 5-games Swiss Chess format.
Juniors (Under 18) get discounted entry by using the code BHGSUNDER18 when booking.
Where there is a theme specified, we are working it as we speak, but these periods will definately be offered - full information will be published as soon as we have it.
If you do want to book early and find that we end up choosing a set of lists, special rules, table sizes or game durations you can't do or don't like, we will offer a full refund so please don't let that put you off booking in early!
The Small Print
In the event that there are insufficient players to make your chosen period viable (normally fewer than 6 players), you will be offered the option to switch to another period or a full refund.
GENERAL ENTRY CONDITIONS
Entry to the competition is regarded as acceptance of the BHGS’s competition rules (available on the BHGS website). Admission to any BHGS tournament is at the sole discretion of the organisers and their decision on all matters is final. If any entrant breaches these rules, causes disruption during the competition or causes or threatens to cause damage to property at the venue the BHGS’s representative on the day will be entitled in his or her absolute discretion to require that player to leave the competition and the venue immediately, without any refund.
Late submission of army lists is your best and most effective way to make the lives of the many kind, selfless and generous people who organise these events for you a real misery. Please therefore try to submit your list in good time. Deadline dates and list checkers will be published on the BHGS website and communicated to players. The BHGS reserve the right to inflict any one of a wide range of as yet unspecified grave, horrible, humiliating and potentially personally painful penalties on anyone who submits a late list. Especially if you are a repeat offender. You know who you are.... so be careful !
The British Historical Games Society was created in 1996 to act as a body to further the advancement of the historical wargaming hobby. The BHGS runs several national competitions, assists with organising many others and has international links with other national and international wargaming organisations.
We are here to serve the tournament wargaming community as a whole. We are a ruleset agnostic, non-profit organisation and any surpluses made from our activities are ploughed back into facilitating and encouraging tournament wargaming wherever and whenever we can.
We organise the Challenge, Roll Call, Britcon and the BHGS Doubles each year and support a number of other events. For more details visit our website at www.bhgs.org.uk
