There were some 60 people in attendance at this year's AGM. The annual curry lunch was followed by the AGM formalities, group photo, annual auction and, of course, lots of gaming. A good time was had by all. Photos to be posted soon.

After Action Reports from Past Meetings
We were in the news again in the now defunct Australian bi-monthly magazine Broadsword, issue 10 of which carried an illustrated in depth introduction to HKSW. They also reprinted a couple of articles from old issues of Despatches. Jeff Herbert and Michael Withington, fame (if not fortune) await you; your articles, respectively, on the "Successors" and "Wargaming Blitzkrieg" were continued in issues 11 and 13.
We also made the press in issue 528 of HK magazine, which ran an article on the offbeat clubs of Hong Kong. We rubbed shoulders with the likes of the Condoms of the Month Club (the mind boggles) and the Hong Kong Laughter Club (if they want a real laugh, they should come along to one of our club meetings). We weren't shed in too bad a light, although needless to say, they got some of the facts wrong. Read the full report here.
As most of you will already know, we made it into the pages of the South China Morning Post. You can read the full article by clicking on the image of the page on the right. Whilst not entirely accurate, it has not done us any disservice, as we have had several approaches by potential members since its publication. We were as a result asked to stage a two-day event at Cyber Port in mid-April 2007. Such is the power of the press . . .
As a consequence, HKSW's first ever war and strategy game show was staged at Cyberport on the weekend of 21/22 April 2007.
Latest magazine to feature an article on the HKSW is the Japanese wargaming publication "Command". See what they said here.
