[Sticky] Event Postponed

In consultation with CiA I have decided to postpone Lenino so that the 'October Slot' can be made use of, and we can get our CiA game this year - which we all want.

Originally CiA were kind enough to step aside from their plans for October, to enable myself to run this game. Co-incidentally we were both looking to use the same site: MAW. With their June game having to be cancelled due to events beyond their control I suggested that they 're-take' October, and I would run something in June.
Keep your eyes open for some new adventure from myself being put forward for June.

So, it is with great pleasure that I introduce your new October game.... CiA (OK, I am not introducing them, they will lay forth their game in due course and you will all enjoy the anticipation, dammit ).

I would like to thank those who have booked onto Lenino - you have all had a message sent to you in private - and to those who spoke to me and were just waiting to book on.

The main question: Will the game running in June be Lenino?

The answer: No. I can see when a game does not interest people so we will not be running Lenino. there are plenty of Eastern Front games out there this year so our game will bring us back to the simpler ground of Western Europe, and a simpler date of 1944 (probably).

Expect details to be forthcoming.

As above, I don't think there was any particular lack of interest, it is just a several months off yet.

Anyway, looking forward to whatever you come up with for June. I'll keep that weekend blocked out.

Cheers

At least it means I won't have to take off my M35 collar tabs, I've only just sewn them on!

As the other two Eastern front games are 1941 I'll probably end up sewing my full colour tabs back on after this weekend anyway.

it will definitely be rifles friendly, and almost certainly be a rifles only game.

Should have all the definite details up early next week.

So the question is whether there is a CIA or indeed anyone else's game mooted for October?

Disappointed at the cancellation of the July game and unable to make the games in August and September do I have to wait until Rattenkrieg (already booked and paid) in November? As well as already suffering withdrawal symptoms I also ask as I am being asked to book up a weekend in October - at the moment it is all open and I would hate to subsequently find that I have picked the wrong weekend.

Even a faint pencil mark might let me make a slightly more informed decision.

I don't know Charlie, there has been nothing further mooted about any October game.

No faint pencil marks or even broad brush stokes of black emulsion paint - there is no prospect of CiA running a game this year I'm afraid, for a thousand reasons. So October remains free...

And, if you type in "Operation Foxley", we're on page 2. Oh well.



When I want your opinion - I'll tell you what it is!

Bad news, the ominous signs of Pete now selling his German gear too had not gone unnoticed here. I sincerely hope that is not a permanent state of affairs.

Thanks for letting me know.
