Trenchtown Gears of War 3 ‘Wingman’ Details

TT_April 2014_01

We’ve been threatening to head back in time for a while now, and it seemed the time is now right. April has offered up two Call of Duty Ghosts events in quick succession, so we decided it was the right month for a trip down memory lane.

So, rev your chainsaws, and get acquainted with the ‘B’ button on your Xbox 360 controller, because 26 April is the day we take Gears of War 3 out for a spin. And the best thing of all? It’s a free entry event. With cash prizes.

On the day, we will have a few free-play consoles to keep the less competitive among you occupied, as well as sharing the venue with the monthly craft market. In fact, while the game itself may endorse gut-wrenching violence, we’re only too keen to encourage gaming and socialising for the event, by offering everyone a little something on the day.

**UPDATE**

While no entry fee will be charged, we are doing a drive to support local animal welfare organisations. Should you wish to, please bring along dog and/or cat food that we will pass along to the organisation who will be at the venue with their stall for the day.

The organisation we will be supporting is Animal Rescue Team.

The Gears of War 3 tournament will be a ‘Wingman’ event (2v2v2v2).
