Description Edit | History

TringCon is a one-day meeting of board gamers that takes place in Tring, which is about 30 miles north west of London in the UK. The event was run from 1993 to 2006 by Alan Parr with assistance from his wife Jill - and very well run, too. 2006 was going to be the last event as Alan had hung up his Hopscotch pen and ink, and thought that it was time TringCon retired as well. Keith Thomasson spoke to Alan and offered to keep the event alive, and he was happy to let Keith take over. Keith's wife Valerie took Jill's place as caterer. 2017 saw Keith's final TringCon as organiser, but Tethys and Ferret spoke to Keith and offered to keep the event alive, with Steve and Sharon helping out with catering. Thus TringCon continues.

You can book places for TringCon events on the new TringCon web site.

More Information Edit | History

The event is limited in numbers due to the size of the hall and the amount of work involved in catering. This limit is around 76, and previous TringCons have hit that attendance limit. For this reason pre-booking attendance is very strongly recommended.

Your entry fee covers a day of gaming, hot and cold drinks and biscuits throughout the day, plus a buffet in the afternoon. Space is provided for a small marketplace for people to bring games they wish to sell.

The next TringCon will be on 29th September 2018.
