Thread: Flight Club 03/'23 at Entoyment, Poole

    Default Flight Club 03/'23 at Entoyment, Poole

    After a winter break full of Christmas and illness, the eighth meeting of Flight Club is set to go ahead on Sunday 26th March 2023 at Entoyment Poole for yet more WGF mayhem

    The usual crowd have already been notified but if you're a forum member that wants to come and join the fun then get your name down & let me know via PM if you want attend.
    This is not an Entoyment event ie you cannot book a place to play via the shop. I will manage the table - Cost to cover the tables will be three quid a head on the day to be paid to flash on arrival please. (it's gone up a quid per table but hopefully we'll cover it)

    This is not a demo/participation like we'd usually put on at an event but a day for us to get into some more involved gaming and play some bigger, longer, WW1 scenario type games than we may usually get at a show.

    I will update an idea of content nearer the time but, as they usually go down well, there will be one hour dogfights in the mix and maybe an opportunity to fly something you don't have or don't use too often.

    If anyone has a scenario they'd like to put on for this event please PM me.

    (L-R: Rich, Iain (Chianti Raider), Tony (tonyc206), Mike (Mikeemagnus), Tim (Flying Helmut), Sean, Justin (JuD), Andy B (Scherlochnumber1), Hobz (Yellow Peril) [hidden behind them], Barrie (Baz)

    If you'd like to see what you're in for here are the previous events:

    These are the usual table rules:
    No kids..
    No altitude.
    No tailing.
    No disruption.
    Aim in play (+1 consec hits)
    Split-S in play.
    Blind spots in play.
    EXP = Half start damage rounded up.

    Potential Attendees:

    Mike (Mikeemagnus)
    Barrie (Baz)
    Tim (Flying Helmut)
    Andy L (Ajay)
    Andy B (Scherlochnumber1)
    Hobz (Yellow Peril)
    Iain (Chianti Raider)
    Gary (Hu Rhu)
    Rob (Rabscallion) is in
    Richard yes !

    Sean - CoVid
    Chris [crasher] - pulled out
    Justin (JuD) - can't make it now.

    Lee (Gangleader147) - nothing heard

    Well chaps, this is approaching fast !
    If all who said they'll be there turn up we will have a full house - we'll see on the day.
    There will be a couple of one hour dogfights as usual and a couple of scenarios provide by Barrie (Baz) & Gary (Hu Rhu). Baz is taking is over the Adriatic for some Italian Front fun and Gary is taking us to strafe the Hun on the run in a late war knock up !

    Thought it worth mentioning, Mike ! Wonder how many people will forget ?!
    We lost Justin (JuD) to a family commitment but I got hold of Rob (Rabscallion) and he's coming now, so we may have a full house.

    Yep, many thanks Dave and everyone else for a really fun day. Four interesting scenarios played, including the maiden flight of my MF11; with the usual maiden flight result - shot down inside two turns Wouldn't have missed it for anything though.

    Cheers guys - Happy days and here's to the next one

    One Hour Dogfight:

    We started where we left off in Flight Club 7 - more by accident than design - Brisfits v Fokker E.V & SSD.III. That time the Brisfits were triumphant..
    We were into it by the time I remembered I was supposed to be documenting this!

    Baz cops some attention on the left, having already exchanged with Rob who has jammed. I've swapped lead with Mike who also jammed. Late to the party Rich heads right as Tim turns hard into Iain on the right side.

    Brisfits L-R are Hobz; Baz (B); Dave (A); Iain (1) Rich (nf) at the back who'd just arrived

    Seems Baz had thrown the switch on the 'Bullet Magnet' - Kill to Ajay in the yellow nosed SSD.III

    On the other side of the table they'd been mixing it up too, Mike's in the Blue Fokker, Tim's in the Red - wounded pilot & smoke trail tell the tale.
    On the far side jams tell the tale, Iain's Snipe runs in with his bombs harassed by Rob, covered by Andy

    The Fokker net closes - at least I think that's what he said ! Iain toggles the bomb release and braces himself for a Spandau lashing.. Rob gets shot at by the Andy (U camel card).

    The above may not match what actually happened as I think there's a chance I may have muddled the pilots - but it was as much fun as it looked !

    Game 4 - One Hour Dogfight:

    For a change I thought we'd try the arty spotting game seen recently on the forum - I'm not sure I got, or, explained it quite right but this is what we came up with:
    Two 'Strutters playing the spotters (Iain & Hobz) defended by three Nieuport 17's (A guns) - v - 5 Albatros D.II & an Albatros D.III

    The N.17 started the game circling between the Albatrii and the 'Strutters as they entered the table from the left edge.
    The N.17's threw themselves straight at the Albatrii and the lead starts to fly.

    That was it, the hour was up. The Tommy lost both spotter's but hit one of the targets. Four Albatros were killed in the making of this game !
    Well done and thanks to all involved.

    Another grand day out. Thanks to all the pilots and planners. Always makes the trip well worthwhile. Even better when I can avoid being the first to crash and burn!
