Fighting 15s to host Derby Worlds 2020

Wargamers are aware that Derby World Wargames has gradually been moving south – from Derby itself, to Donington Park, and then Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground, Lutterworth. Organiser Daryl of KR Multicase has a three-year rolling schedule for the worlds at a particular venue, and at Colours 2017 Fighting 15s talked to Daryl and put forwards its own garage and garden as a spacious venue with a view to hosting the event in 2020.

Hosting Derby Worlds on the Isle of Wight  will, of course, avoid the inevitable slip down the country to London and the Excel centre and prevent it becoming “The Other Salute”, and mean the event will go as far directly south as it can in the UK without everyone getting their feet wet. A location on the sunshine Isle means there is no fear of rain in October – it only rains on the Island when there is a music festival – and an outdoors event is possible in the clement weather.

The bucolic surroundings of Fighting 15s mean that those gamers who long for the heady smell of farm animals and agricultural machinery from Donington Park can experience nature itself, red in tooth and claw, just along the farm lane from Fighting 15s.

Don’t forget your bucket and spade.
