The Laverton Lawn Bowls club rooms is bright, spacious and tidy. Plenty of off street parking available.

Drinks: We have a open bar (no BYO) with reasonably priced drinks available throughout the night. Tea and coffee will be available.

Food: Snacks available, but we also have the five basic food groups (KFC, McDonald's, Subway, Hungry Jacks, Red Rooster) a couple of minutes drive away. There's also a dozen other options, with many offering delivery. I'll have menus available on the day.

The aim of Gaming in the Meadows if friendly gaming in a casual atmosphere - at a super cheap entry price.

There's no games library, so similar to BorderCon you need to bring your own games. Many people don't mind lending a game out - just take a look at the individual instructions on their game collection containers.

And to continue the no-frills approach, there currently aren't plans for tournaments, a flea market or new game purchases - but I'm open to ideas!

There's ample room so there's no tickets - just pay at the door.

Again we have the Melbourne Subbuteo Club playing a tournament for the Altona Cup. We're planning the tournament from 2 - 5pm for those who want to either watch, participate or play a friendly game before or after the tournament. There's now a Western Flickers Table Football too for those living in the western surburbs.

And for those looking for a super quick football tournament, a Tipp-Kick tournament will be running shortly after the Subbuteo tournament. Five minute games and very easy to pick up - my seven year-old son won the last one!
