    Great to meet Andy, Irwin666, last night.

    Played a 3 on 3 BoB fighter game. With 4 non players and help from Andy we managed to get through 2 introductory games.

    Hoping this is the start of something new as Wings up north has been very sparse. Well North of the Wansbeck, were everybody knows the border lands start.

    So if you're up for a game drop me a line.

    Next Thursday 7pm, Elizabeth's Hall, Spittal, Newbiggen.

    Well the collection has sat for over 2 years unused, last roll of the dice as they say.

    Could be why things aren't going well?

    PS: Good luck with the reboot.

    I'm the only player up here still active who has oodles of models. Sparky can't make it to our club and the old club members who did have planes have all sold them and are playing other things. That said it would seem I have 6-9 players for next Thursday. WTS.

    The League is a mix of KOTA and OTT.

    Perhaps, more like an eagle, or condor. Phoenixs are on fire.

    Just saying.

    Similar sentiments from me, too.

    A phoenix rises from the ashes of the previous phoenix just as this club has risen from what remained of the previous one.

    Well at present I'm organising all the games and running the club. Not really my intention, I just wanted to have somewhere to turn up and play what I like playing. Hoping that the others will take the hint, 3rd month in, and start playing and bringing their own stuff and running some games for themselves.

    Bitch over, now must phone the councillor in charge and organise paying 2 months rent..........

    I don't think it will produce any new forum members but at least it keeps the game alive north of Newcastle and south of Edinburgh.
