    Default D Day charity game

    I would like to thank Simon (Maverick), Chris (hedeby) and Andrew (Rollover) for assisting in putting on the Bolt Action D Day 75th anniversary charity game at the YMCA Ashington today.

    A big thank you to all forum members who sponsored us.

    You helped raise £840 in total for the Royal British Legion and the YMCA charities.
    See you on the Dark Side......

    Simon won 1st place, nearly got off Juno but the German force there was bliwn away. Cory, playing the German defenders on Omaha, came 2nd. Bloody Omaha lived up to its name.
