Thread: The 2016 Lend-Lease participant is...

  1. #1

    Default The 2016 Lend-Lease participant is...

    For the past three years we have selected a member of the site to join us at Origins Game Fair in Columbus Ohio. Each year it gets harder and harder to select just a single person that deserves this honor. This year's winner had been a member of the site since 2010 and has flown over 3,000 sorties, but his biggest contribution to the game is being one of the founding members of the Prague Summer Con, now going into it's 4th year.

    It is with great pleasure that I announce Dan-Sam (Daniel) as this year's Lend-Lease participant!















    I have personally met Daniel when my wife and I traveled to Prague for sight seeing. Daniel made sure to arrange for me to meet the other Czec's pilots and get a few games in. All of their pilots are a special group that welcomes pilots from all over the world to share a little table air space with them for some friendly and fun games. It is truly and honor to have one of their members come over to the US and just us here.

    Over the next couple of month we will be running several raffle style fund raisers here on the site to generate the funds needed to cover the expenses of the Lend-Lease program.

    But for now, please join me in congratulating Daniel on his selection!

    Dear friends, thank you for your nice words. It is a real honor for me and I will try to report all important events of this "journey of my life". The farest place I have ever been is Iceland so this "trip" will be a big adventure for me and I am looking forward it much. Thank you to all important people of Origins!
    I must say that our Prague Con is not one man show. It is a teamwork and it is my duty to say "thank you" to Kubajs, Honza, Watchdog and Ladinek - very important people of Prague Group.
    By the way, Herr Oberst and Sue did a great job with new set of medals - the red strip is on the right side (don't smile, even many Czechs don't know where it should be in this position of flag).

    Great choice, herr Oberst!
    Few years ago, it was Dan, who sent the first PM to me, asking if I would like to meet and play together.
    That was the start of the Prague wing.
    Since then we played many many great games.
    Thank you, Daniel. Well deserved honour.

    I am lounging forward to meet especially both of you. I know Ken was on the start and Karl is a big supporter of European front in WGS. I have safed some Karl's list with Avia B-135 still. May be one day...

    I saw some photos from Air Force Museum and can't wait to see it. I saw Norwegian, Czech and a museum in London and (Old) York so I want more!

    Thank you, for your kind words, friends. You can't imagine how happy I am there are people who like this game and run it in their homes. Per, hope you will join us sometimes in Prague, but I understand you must be a good father now

    Thank you for these kind words of yours, Daniel. But our idea was just a spark - you guys keep the flame burning.
