VCOW is coming!

VCOW (the Virtual Conference of Wargamers) will be starting on a Friday evening, and I expect the last few days are likely to be a bit hectic at time.

At present, we have over sixty attendees, and I suspect we might pick up a few more as the week progresses. As one of the co-ordination team, I will be communicating with the attendees by email at least once before Friday, and will be taking part in our last pre-conference Zoom meeting on Thursday evening,

On Sunday morning, I will be doing a talk about the origins of Wargame Developments and the first ever COW, which was held at the former Moor Park College, near Farnham.

The building that housed the former Moor Park College.
I’ve already written it and prepared the slides, but I’ll certainly be going through it a couple of times between now and a Sunday to check that it makes sense, and to make any final tweaks that it might need.

The building that housed the former Moor Park College is Grade II Listed, and after it ceased to be used as a residential training college, it was converted into two large houses. It has since been redeveloped into a luxury residential complex with twenty-four apartments.

  1. Hi BOB,
    I'm hoping that your VCOW goes splendidly -as I'm sure that you and the team have put in a lot of homework and preparation on ensuring everything is ready and goes like clock-work. Best Wishes. KEV. (Sydney - AUSTRALIA).

      Cheers! A lot of preparation has gone into VCOW, and if it goes well, it might be the first of a series of online wargame conferences run by Wargame Developments.

      All the best,

      Bob

      There isn’t a virtual bar as such ... but there is an online place for people to meet and chat!

      All the best,

      Bob
