  • Lend-Lease 2013 Raffle 3 - Jasta 12

    This project is finished.

    I'd like to start this off by first saying that we as a community have really come together over the past two years in regards to the Lend-Lease program. In 2012 we were able to raise enough money to cover the expenses to bring Guntruck over as the very first Lend-Lease participant. This year everyone has again made it possible to bring another one of our great members, Nightbomber, over to be a part of our annual Origins Game Fair Convention. The first two raffles for teh 2013 Lend-Lease raised enough to cover the cost of getting him over here.

    While we could call it quits at this point and everything would go smoothly, I'd like to run one more raffle. Why you ask? First, I know there are some of you that have joined the site or learned about the Lend-Lease program after the last raffle that want to be a part of this as well. For that, I am personally very thankful. It's this spirit of community that has formed here on the Aerodrome that makes all the work and effort worth it. Secondly, I already had the artwork for the higher levels of the medal made up and I already have the prizes as well, might as well go ahead and make those available to those that would like them. And finally, while the Lend-Lease was created to bring one of our overseas members to the Con, the whole reason we started doing the Con in the first place was to spread the word about the game and get more people involved. Doing this has it's own set of expenses and this last raffle will help to cover those and allow us to give out more prizes.

    This final raffle will be for a set of three Fokker Dr.Is custom painted in Jasta 12 colors:








    Vzfw Ulrich Neckel




    Ltn. Hermann Becker




    Ltn Hans Besser




    This raffle is finished, thanks to everyone that help support Lend-Lease 2013!

    To be honest, I thought the Steerman too; looking for which model made me wonder about the tail.

    I Think I've Found The Perfect Beer For This Place...

    Ales are cheaper to buy the equipment to make than lagers; hence ales are the vast majority of craft brews being made, at least in the USA.
