Saturday 20th June - Seelowe Game - Start time 2pm - 6pm (ish)

Post  MJ1 on Tue May 19, 2009 10:04 pm

Just posting to see if there is any interest in a game in June?

2-3 players per side and some umpires needed.

It will be based on the planned invasion of England by those dastardly Hun in 1940.

It will be a platoon / company level action using period maps.

More details to follow....

It will be held at Woodford so please post here if you can make the trip to Woodford (between Daventry Junc 16 M1 (approx 15mins) and Banbury M40 Junc 11 (Approx 15mins) and want to play / umpire that day.

I will be looking for a German and British commander to do some pre game setup / discussions / planning via e-mail, so the first to post their wish to take these roles can have them

I will now post on the Warwick Gamers club site and offer same opportunity to my club mates.

Cheers

MJ

Not my period, but sounds good & I'm up for it.
I'm glad someone wants to do a different period. Laughing

Bags I be Cpl Jones.

OK I think you will be Home Guard Commander. Cpl Jones has been promoted...

We have two people up for it from the Warwick group and I think Martin is OK for it so looking like we might have enough people.

Yes, I'm game. Any capacity.

My youngest also a possible, but will only just have finished A levels, so he may be in vegitative state.

Another thought. Have you posted on the TFL Yahoogroup, Mark? Probably worth doing that, if not.

I hope it goes well for him and he gets the required grades for his posting North of the border

Sorry you can't make it Steve, I am sure I will run something along same lines again as once I have worked out a way of doing WW2 games I have quite a few other maps and ideas.

Just need to get busy sorting out counters and maps for the 20th....

Two more players for you on the 20th June, Mark. My youngest, David, and his friend Alex, who attended his first game last time.

Excellent, I am working on the maps and the scenario today.

Should have overall brief sorted by end of the week.

You're thinking of someone else, I think. Vincent's actually quite an experienced k/spieler, and you could give him any role with some confidence. Assuming he comes of course, and I'm still awaiting confirmation from him.

Just got the first draft of the detailed maps printed yesterday and they are looking good. Even managed to get hexes onto them to help the umpires.

Martin et al I will send out directions to those who need it if they can e-mail me directly?

MSJ_1 AT Hotmail DOT Com

I will also check what Silverstone is doing to the roads as that messes up the routes near Towcester but should be fine for the junctions past there.

The briefings will be going out to the commanders this weekend which are Andy and Phil from the Warwick club who will do all the pre game stuff and allow us to get a prompt start at 2pm.

Seelowe - Area of Ops Map - For both sides

Post  MJ1 on Sat Jun 13, 2009 1:23 pm

This link shows the overall situation for the game and the area the game will be played in. Not high detail but the area is just West of Horsham.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3596/3621274587_6f88ed6f78_o.jpg

The briefings have been sent to the CiC's and they should have plans ready for a prompt start at 2pm on Saturday.

Due to the variable nature of people turning up (or not) I will allocate other roles on the day.

I will prep a map / notes on how to get to house and send out via e-mail to those who are attending.

Please e-mail me this week with details as to who is coming in your car, if I don't get an e-mail I will assume you are not coming.

Cheers

Mark

Due to the possibility of running as similar game in Sept of this one I will hold off an AAR until that stage. (Although I will type one up now while still fresh).

If we do happen to discuss the game perhaps we can keep it to general comments so specific surprises are kept secret...
