It seems Ayr Wargames Club do not allow under 16's to join.

I seen this on their home page.

"Unfortunately, due to recent changes in the Law concerning the supervision of minors, we are unable to accept anyone under 16 years of age in to our Club."

Why is this ?

Hi

It's due to disclosure law's I think disclosure Scotland. It's to protect kid's from adults. It's also not recent. Employers use it if kids are working with adults but it also finds out if potential employes have criminal records and if you have ccj's etc on you record.

Thread Necromancy level 2!

I wouldn't worry too much about disclosures and things. A lot of council run clubs in my area require these sort of technicalities - particularly those run in libraries and council youth centres but for community-run games groups, I wouldn't worry too much about it.

I had the same problem when setting up the rpg club in Largs, no under 18's allowed for the same reasons, which was a real pain as the kids are the future of our hobbies.

However I am just glad to see a club running in Ayr, all the best to them.
