    Default Scramble in Aurora, IL

    Hello Everybody, I would like to host another WOG day at my place in Aurora. Haven't set a date but am considering Feb. 24, March 3 or March 10. I'll pick the date depending on the maximum number of pilots on a given day. If interested post up and let me know which date or dates work.

    Mike the Feb. 24 is no good for Beth and I. I have to be in Madison that afternoon for my daughters hockey game. The March 3 would be best but the 10th would also work.

    Hi Scott,
    Really looking forward to seeing you two. Would you like to bring some chips and dip? Maybe a 6 pack of a favorite brew would be good, too. I'll have several different micro brews, but the more the merrier. I have already ordered a 2 ft sub and I'll get a bucket of chicken wings. I'm getting fired up!

    Still have time to make it! If you leave now, should be up here around midnight and you can crash on the couch.

    Well if ArkansasChuck is going to be there by midnight, maybe we will hop in the car and be there by midnight so we can start gaming alittle sooner. See you tomorrow.

    We had a great time Mike. I really liked the first game, I think that one will work very well at Rock-Con.
    We did not get home until 5:15 am. Beth and I are hurting a little today.

    Gotha's are gone, but so is the SPAD and there is only one more Austrian escort plane. Time to gang up on the Staacken!

    Staacken is on fire but it wasn't enough. Scott was able to bomb a couple more targets and exit the board for a Central Power victory.
