Why?:

We've decided to take the plunge and hold an open session at a local community centre, basically because several groups have merged and outgrown people's living rooms. We're considering a more central venue for the future, depends what people say at the meeting.

We'll have a fairly large selection of games on offer, or bring your own.

When?:

Saturday 25th April 2009.

We'll be open from 6pm to midnight, arrive before 8pm when the longer games will probably be starting up. Small charge to cover room hire, depending on numbers, we expect no more than £2 each.

Free tea and coffee available, and there are shops and supermarket within walking distance. Takeaways likely to be ordered or bring food and drink.

Where?:

The newly-built Ouseburn Community Centre [NE6 5NY] at the bottom of Mowbray St in Heaton, Newcastle - (Mowbray St is off Heaton Park Rd).

Google maps/streetview: http://tinyurl.com/cu28q5

Getting there - it's on the number 1 bus route (bus stop at bottom of Warwick St), or it's fairly close to Chillingham Rd or Byker metro stations and the buses which go to Shields Rd (get off at Morrisons).

Plenty of on-street parking if you're driving.

Contact me through geekmail if you want more information or might be joining us.

Well done Gareth! Another public club. Hoorah!

Just avoid the 1st and 3rd Saturdays and there won't be any trouble see.

Well I can't be in two places at once so... it's a deal devil

It'll be a good while before we establish a fixed calendar though. Organisers are too busy in "real life" at the moment. But we'll see what evolves from these early steps...

Thanks for the support, guys!
