    Default Dipping my Wings!

    After posting on a few forums all morning, it seemed like only good manners to come in here and officially "report for duty."

    A long time wargamer (over 4 decades) but new to WoW/WoG (I've never actually played a game yet, not even solo). Received the BoB starter kit as a Christmas present, read the rules, and started ordering more WWII aircraft. I've played Air Force/Dauntless a few times, but was always more involved in WWI in my air gaming. So WWII WoG is somewhat of a new venture for me.

    I'm looking forward to meeting local players once the Covid crisis subsides somewhat. Until then, I'll have to be satisfied with solitaire unless I can convince my wife and/or daughter to fly.

    I've been very impressed with the friendliness and hospitality displayed by the members of this forum. The chivalry displayed by the "Knights of the Air" lives on in the 21st century.

    Regards,
    Mike

    Welcome to the 'Drome, Mike, from across the 'Pond'!

    Sounds like you've fallen pretty hard! Good for you!

    Your fellow Americans will take you in hand and show you the ropes, but any/all of us are more than happy to reply to any queries you may have.

    Fly safe, and remember to always watch your Six!

    Welcome to the Aerodrome Mike. Sadly this years large gaming gatherings won't be happening until maybe the end of the year. Hopefully you'll be able to get in some air time with the solo system. PM me and I can set you up with that for WW2.

    Plan on attending Origins (Columbus OH) in 2022 for 5 days of Wings gaming. ARES attends and there are a few of us that run many games Wednesday through Sunday.

    G'day Mike & welcome to the 'drome on behalf of the pilots who fly in NSW down in Australia.
    Quite a few of the chaps here play against their wives &/or Sons or Daughters so good luck with that!

    Hopefully we can have some games once our country starts making headway vs this virus, but in the meantime enjoy the people and resources here. Lots of stuff to learn and appreciate and it's a fun ride!

    I just realized that i failed to welcome a neighbor. Although, i believe you welcomed me. I fly out of the far end of the state from our mutual state borders.

    Fly high, with the sun to your back, and still skies.

    Hello Doug, and all the others who have responded!

    It certainly is a fine group here. Hopefully some of us can meet FtF one of these days.

    When do I become eligible to give reputation points? And how do I give these points?

    I've seen a lot of stuff from members of this forum that is highly deserving!

    Also, the point below my Country Flag reads that I have yet to report for flight training. Is that based on a number of posts, or is there something else I need to do?

    Regards,
    Mike

    There should be a Green Cross to the left, in the other member's profile image. Near the bottom. Click on the cross to whom you wish to spread the rep.
