    Sounds like a good time.

    I have fond memories of our first game at one of your scrambles, flying into your bomber when you and I had the only two planes left on a rather large table.

    Michael,

    Thank you for hosting and putting these two Sorties on! I had a great time. Glad to see Tim make it out, and meet Pat and Ken too.

    That first mission, I wanted to keep going with my Beech Chair even though I was vastly out numbered, but it was best to concede so we could get the others in the next game soon. Plus you guys had more backups coming in! Still was fun taking down that Berje at the end with Artillery, but he did his job plenty before he got shot down.

    The 2nd mission, wowza! Talk about a barn burner at the end! Flying the Caproni was fun, and I got to do my first bombing raid! I thought we were done, and then I made the dumb decision to go after Tim's two fighters. Knocked the one out right away, this gave you cover to get your Caproni out of the way, and then I had to turn my big ass tail and run and hope he didn't get me with his other fighter!

    Poor Ken kept getting jammed guns, and Pat, LOL he was shooting blanks the whole game in both scenarios it seemed!

    Looking forward to more games with you guys. Maybe I'll try to host one coming up!

    Btw had our 1st race of the Thunder Alley Racing season yesterday (4 of 5 drivers were in attendance). We raced the Pocono Track, my team finished 2nd.


    Tschüss,

    -Chris

    Glad you had a good time. I liked playing Thunder Alley at Rock-Con. Keep me in mind for a game. I've tried to get Ken and Pat to join, but their pictures are on here.

    Eric, if I remember correctly that crash took me out and our side lost the scenario. Fun times anyway. Hope everything is good with you two.

    You remember perfectly. All you had to do was drop your bomb for the victory. All I had to do was fly anywhere other than into you on a sizable layout. That was a very fun day. Sue and I were just starting with Wings.

    We're doing well. I hope all is well with you and yours.
