This month, the DGGC are going to laserquest!

For those who don’t know, Laserquest is a LARP-like game in which players enter a darkened area riddled with narrow passages, platforms, obstacles and smoke. Each player is equipped with body armour and a laser-gun, with which they must shoot other players. When you are hit, you are out for a few moments, and your adversary scores some points. At the end of the match, the player with the highest score wins!

This event is open to all members and non-members over the age of 12. Young people under the age of 16 will require parental consent, ask John Cartledge for a consent form. Here’s the plan:

Meet up at laserquest for 6:30
We’ll be there for 2 games, get some snacks and juice provided by the centre
As a group, walk to McDonald’s in Carlisle City Centre to eat
Board the 9.12pm train, arriving back in dumfries just after 10pm
Parents may pick up children from the train station, and over 16s may leave the group at this point if they wish
Walk back to the YMCA, for those who need to be picked up there

This event costs £8.60 to take part in, which MUST be paid to John Cartledge BEFORE the date of the event. Last chance to pay up will be Wednesday the 22nd. This covers the cost of games. Food and travel costs must be paid for by participants, though parents may if they wish contact John to make other arrangements for food.

Please note: If anyone would like assistance in arranging travel to Laserquest, or needs directions, please get in touch with the committee and we’ll try our best to help!
