Dave has been a member of the site for a little under 8 years and is always in the thick of things here on the site and in his local gaming clubs. It is players like Dave that keep this gaming flying at the highest level!

    Please join me in congratulating Dave on his selection!

    Thanks chaps - my gast is still flabbered but a huge thankyou for all involved in the selection process and bestowing this honour upon me, I'm still a little lost for words but I'm really looking forward to crossing The Pond again, experiencing Ohio, Origins and meeting my colonial cousins whose generosity is already overwhelming me.

    This is the question. We shall seriously take these qualification criteria into account before choosing any next LL paricipants. And he/she should be obliged to make an official statement in that matter, to not have other participants dissapointed.

    Well done Flash. Your AAR's have always been great and your posts interesting. Looking at all those gongs there Oberst, I was imagining a formal game night where the WoG participants actually wore their medals (and mess dress of course). They certainly look great.

    Could not be a better or more deserving choice than Dave!
    The work he puts in to the OTT Solo Campaigns is just awesome.
    Have a fantastic time "over there" Dave & show those Americans how to FLY!

    My contributions are on their way.

    Really, Ken. We've had it at the hotel at Origins (Andrzej loved it). They brew it right down the street for the convention center.

    I really fancy one of those Balloon sets and cannot find one online at the moment :-(

    It therefore seems only fitting that I buy some tickets for the "Lend Lease" arrangement (that I only vaguely understand) to support the person that gave my son and I our first game and directed our first purchase less than a month ago at Beachhead in Bournemouth UK :-)

    However, can someone explain the 'prize' to me. If I/we win the raffle do we pay postage etc? It seems only fair, but I might buy one less ticket to reserve money for postage if that is the case

    Thanks In Advance
