    Default Rock-Con 2017

    Anyone going to Rock-Con this year? It runs Friday October 20 to Sunday October 22.
    This year it will be at Tebala Shrine Temple, 7910 Newberg Rd, Rockford, IL
    Early bird cost is $25.00 for entire weekend or $30.00 for entire weekend if bought after September 24.

    Beth and I will be going Friday and Saturday, not Sunday.
    I am wondering who will be running games.(Mike and Tim?)

    Sounds like a fun opportunity - now that I'm retired, it could be a 'thing' I can do....

    All the best,

    I have just received confirmation that my scenarios have been approved for Rock-Con. Sat. morning will be a bombing run on Trieste, and Sat. afternoon a combined French and American force will attack in the St. Mihiel region. Also, I am planning on running an Axis and Allies game on Friday night. The excitement is already building!

    We miss you to David.
    Every time my balloons fly, we think of you.
    My son just moved to Phoenix. If he stays long enough Beth and I will plan a vacation and visit you.
    Take care David

    Megans SPAD catches fire!

    The first scenario was entitled "Raid on Trieste". Three Capronis were assigned to bomb at least 6 targets in the port of Trieste in order to secure an Italian victory. The Capronis were escorted by Machhi sea planes, 2 Hanriot HD1's and a SPAD X111. Central Powers responded with 6 Albatross DVa's, two Phoenix, and two Aviatiks. The Italians secured a victory with 6 targets destroyed and 3 Central Powers planes shot down. Italian losses were 1 Caproni and the SPAD.

    How was everything at the new location???

  19. #19


    Dave, my caproni survived and I had bombed 2 or 3 of our 6 targets we needed. We had alot of fun but we were lucky because our fighters kept them busy. The allies did lose one of the caproni's but not mine this time.

    Tim, the new location was great. Not as big but no soccer players running around and parking was close. The only draw back was the food. They had burgers,hotdogs,brats and chicken sandwiches but only served until 7pm.
    Overall it was very nice.
