By all accounts the annual Society Conference at the Chesford Grange Hotel in Warwickshire on the 24th to 25th November was a great success. Here is a summing up by the Society President Roy Boss:

This was our best Conference so far, with informative and entertaining presentations and some really good games. The talks ranged from the Biblical period to mediaeval so there was a good range of topics.

My wife used to teach infants and was always delighted when the boys in the class were ‘engaged', that is engrossed in a group activity. Well the members who attended the Conference were definitely absorbed in the action. Notably there was loud involvement in several of the games which is always a good sign.

I was very pleased for Richard who puts in an enormous investment of hard work across the weekend to make sure the event goes smoothly. He can be very satisfied with the result. We could happily take about 50 people as a maximum so the good news is that there is room for more of us to enjoy the 2019 event.

One thing we would happily include is shorter presentations, so if you have enough material to speak for say fifteen minutes on wargaming or an historical topic then we will happily give help with visual aids and even where to get information.
