Club Open Day 2015

Probably the first Open day that I've ever attended. Great vibe and many people through the doors to checkout what the terms Gamers and Gaming means sans electronics. What I saw was a big bunch of ordinary people having a fantastic time over the two days of the Open weekend. It was reflected with total attendance hitting the 110+ mark over the two days. Good mix of people and a huge number of games played over the weekend. Check out the pictures of everyone getting their game on.

If you want to come join us for a game, then the Club is open every Sunday from ~midday till 5.30pm. Please visit the Club's facebook page Here.
