After meeting at the Townsend Social Club (previously the Conservative Club) since the 20th Century. Halesowen Boardgamers is moving to a new venue.
Starting from 20 November we will now meet at the Stag & Three Horseshoes pub. This is on the Birmingham side of Halesowen at the top of Mucklow Hill. A room has been arranged on the upper floor which is several times larger than our previous location and will make it possible to run more than three games at the same time, while it should also be easy to move around if someone needs to get out of the room without having to squeeze between the backs of chairs. It should also be possible to stay until around 11:30 allowing the possibility for slightly longer games to be played if required.
There is separate access from the outside of the pub at the back, so it won't be necessary to lug bags through the bar area and we will also have access to the bar from inside. Car Parking is at the front and back of the pub and (from an approximate count using Google's satellite photography) looks to support 80 to 90 cars which should be enough to accommodate both ourselves and the pub's other clientèle.
Based on current attendances, there should be no need to change the £1 weekly charge.
