    Default GAMES & TABLES FOR DONCASTER 2020

    If anyone would like to run any games this year please let me know here and I can begin to construct a timetable of events etc.

    Traditionally we have gone with a WW1, WW2 and Sails table, but I think it would be good to have a dedicated BSG table as well this year.
    Would also be nice to see a few Tripods here and there.
    We will conclude with our Traditional and chaotic Aces of Aces Game but other than that I will attempt to accomodate as much variation and fun as possible... over to you chaps (and lady chaps obviously)

    I'm not tempting fate but I would like to run Shanghai Dawn, WW2, 1938 China. 3rd time lucky.

    OK so no closer to being able to say whether this year’s Doncaster event will be going ahead or not. Our reservation at the venue stands but obviously the world picture remains unclear at present. The positive thing is that we are still over four months away at the moment and things are slowly (very slowly) looking a bit brighter... I hope we can still go ahead, but I am guessing that it will be up to our various governments. So let’s just wait and see and keep our fingers crossed.

    Looking back to March, I think I pre-empted the SNAFU by 3 weeks!

    Even if we are allowed to attend our overseas friends may not be able to come.

    As things stand, Paul and Mary would be the only ones allowed in without a two week quarentine.

    Well let’s hope that things are a lot more relaxed by then... wouldn’t be the same without our European friends, they make the event what it is...

    well, I'm still intending to come, but being allowed in is a different thing ...
    Maybe travelling by ferry & car is more acceptable then coming in by plane (he says hoping for it to be true ...)
    We'll see, we"ll see ...

    All being equal we have the planes booked and the accom

    My feeling is that the proposed "air bridges " (sounds an bit like Market garden there for a moment) will be up and running . My question is will the museum be allowed to hold an event for 2 days with more than 10 people in attendance, or is it all round to Manor Lambert for games and G&T

    Well, I'm still hoping it will go ahead, with all of our friends from abroad So I have come up with a WW1 Mission in the hopes. Haven't play tested it yet and when I do it will have to be solo, but what the heck

    Chris, I'd like to send you a draft outline of the idea if that's ok. So could you please PM me with your e mail address. Thought I already had it but its not on my list right now.

    Cheers all and fingers crossed

    Hi Chris
    Just an update on my Game.
    It will be a mixed squadron medium bomber sortie over Holland with the intention of taking out one of the Phillips factories.
    The aircraft will be Wellingtons and Blenheims with the defence being AA and Bf 109,s.
    Details still to be formulated (and Blenheims still to be constructed) but I am confident that all will be ready which is more than I can say for the venue.

    If nobody else comes up with a second WW1 mission I could always put on another straightforward Balloon busting scenario. I'd base it on one of the OTT scenarios we did some time back.

    Hi Reg, if it helps I have two Wellington bombers and 4 Blenheim IVs. The Blenheims have bases and cards already. If you want to add some light bomber assistance I also have 4 Fairey Battles

    I can do the Dieppe air cover scenario which I was unable to bring last year if you like?
    Just basic dogfighting with Fw 190a, Spit VB and Spit IX.

    Hi John
    That would be great. I only have 3 Wellingtons and one of those is in Coastal Command camo.
    I would very much like a look at or a copy of your Blenheim cards if possible. I will also have 4 Mk. IV's on the table. Do you know what maneuver cards I should use for the Wellingtons? I think the Battles would be nice but they would overcrowd the table so no, unfortunately.
    Lastly will you help me run the game as it has suddenly got a lot bigger than I originally envisaged?

    Hi Reg, happy to help.
    I've not actually looked at Wellington's on the table, I got a couple because my father spent some time in them.
    I'll have a look through the files to see what the forum has an to offer.
