    Thinking ahead to what restrictions might be in place come September.... we might have to rethink the traditional Sunday free for all Ace of Aces shoot out. 20-30 people shoulder to shoulder around one table might not be possible or desirable for all concerned. Happy to consider any possible solutions or suggestions.

    I am kicking the first one: if there would be another table (SoG cabin?) we can split into two groups and have WGF and WGS Ace of Aces. It is similar to Origins. I am raising a hand for WGS table and can bring WWII playing cards for division of teams.

    Depending on the numbers allowed to rub shoulders it might be an idea to have say 4 tables of x players in a knock out comp over a limited time period of say 30 -40 mins . Top x scorers of each table play on the final table. players for each table can be randomly picked by deal of cards for example.

    Good suggestions chaps, keep ‘em coming. Also think we should probably limit tables to six + GM

    Not really... guess it’s a difficult one to call this year, I expect a lot of late decisions. I will start pulling everything together now things are beginning to look more hopefull. I’ll start with a roll call thread.. get a Yes(if allowed), Definite No, and maybe type response.

    Could we have a consolidated list of all those who have ordered badges and quantities, it will act as a reminder and final confirmation for Simon.

    Thinking of running the Ace of Aces competition a little differently this year... watch this space

    Looks like we are full steam ahead at the moment for our get together in September - two months tomorrow we should begin to touch down in this sunny corner of Gods own Country. I will review the various threads, update and publish the list of attendees and games/tables. We do potentially need a couple of volunteers to run a game, so if you are interested and able, please let me know. Mike may have to go to Canada which means he can't run his WW1 game, but I will pick that one up and (Probably) run my 1916 Somme game in its place, so we have that one covered. Anyway chaps... watch this space.

    PS. given the removal of restrictions around social distancing and mask wearing etc. looks like we will be able to go ahead with the carnage that is the Sunday morning Ace of Aces game as we have done in previous years...

    Hi Chris, have you and Rob decided what major fleet action will be happening in room #1 this year, obviously there will be copious quantities of port and a few sea shanties and some pesky scenery to sail into..

    As promised here we are with names and games thus far. We could do with another volunteer to run a WW2 game on the Saturday, there are also slots free on the Friday afternoon, but thought given Friday numbers and varying arrival times etc. we would always have a couple of board games going on (Zombicide for instance - always good for a laugh). There are a couple of Sails chaps missing from this list who usually attend, I will reach out to them (or speak to Rob) to see if they are joining us this year.

    If you have a preference for any particular game please let me know and I will start to populate the tables, we can also juggle games/tables to suit the number of players.

    Sorry Chris, unfortunately I will have to withdraw my offer of a Spain '38 game, due to real life putting a Spaniard in the works . Hopefully I will be able to put this on at Doncaster 2022.

    Honestly Dan, I have no idea, the goalposts seem to move on a daily basis, I’m not 100% certain I can get there, and I’ll be walking, lol. I just pray our friends from over the channel can get here, it is what makes the event special.

    So.. putting a call out to WW2 fans, we could do with another volunteer to run a game at Doncaster? Any takers ?

    Just a heads up from South of the Channel or as Boris likes to call it Amber Plus country.
    As things stand there is no possibility of Mary and me getting into the UK without going into isolation and haveing tests on day 2 and 5. There is also the danger of the UK declaring France a Red country wich would really bugger us up as after Doncaster we head for Spain. But seeing as
    A We are only here for 4 days and
    B We came here not to look at a hotel wall but to mix with you guys.
    it seems an impossible option.
    We are both double vacinated and our health passport lets us travel in Europe but since the UK left the EU these count for nothing.
    Barring a miracle and Boris et al dropping the Amber plus label its another missed year at Doncaster for us

    Hi Chris, I've pm'd you some WW2 options.
    Most of them are designed for larger numbers but if people take 2 planes the games should still work

    I can do session 1 and 3 if absolutely necessary, there are options which will bracket BoB nicely.
