NWA members often put on displays outside the club. This is helpful in attracting new members and showing off the wargaming hobby to the public.

WSWA Open Day 28-May-05

The big event for our friends at Western Suburbs Wargames Association (WSWA) each year is their open day. Well worth a trip to the other side of Melbourne.

Lots of displays including the reappearance of some old favourites plus the trade stands of stout supporters of the hobby including Eureka Miniatures (Nic Robson), Military Simulations (Colin Turnbull), Quality Wargames Supplies (Wayne Eaton) and Hall of Ancient Warriors (Brian Hall). Congrats to Brian Hall and the gang who organised the event. My apologies to those whose displays I did not get to photograph or those I did not mention.
