In line with these recommendations, and in order to prioritize the health and well-being of all our gamers this year's Roll Call event will not now take place this April.
We will be speaking to the venue in the coming days to see if it might be possible to reschedule Roll Call for later this year however given the uncertainties involved in this, both for the venue and for individual players the BHGS team have taken the decision to issue full refunds (via the Eventbrite platform) to all currently signed up players within the next couple of days.
BHGS @ London GT
We have also been notified today by the main organiser of the London GT event scheduled for June that they too will be following UK Government advice and postponing the LGT event until September 26th-27th. Our current plan is that all BHGS events currently scheduled to run at the LGT this year will also be postponed to this date, depending on umpire and theme organiser availability.
Anyone who has bought a ticket for events at the LGT will shortly be sent an email by the LGT organising team detailing how these changes impact them and what to do if they can't make the new date. The full announcement from the LGT has been posted on the LGT Facebook page.
The BHGS Challenge @ UK Games Expo
The UKGE organisers have this afternoon posted on Facebook that they are consulting with their venue partners and plan to make an announcement about this year's event on Tuesday 17th March at 6pm, which players signed up are advised to look out for.
For the rest of the year, our current hope remains that we will be able to stage Britcon in Manchester at the beginning of August largely as planned however any decision to go ahead will only be taken if there are significant, positive changes to current UK Government advice regarding social distancing before June of this year.
If it becomes necessary to cancel Britcon, all paid bookings for both traders and players will be refunded in full.
