    I can just confirm that Rob is making another excellent terrain spectacular for our 10th anniversary game of Taranto 2024. More details to follow.

    Just covering my back after the rumours about no ships this year.
    I will give a running report on the construction once Mrs K and I recover from the latest plague to strike Chez Kyte.

    I tested Chris, but it came up clear. However, it has all the indications that the last lot we got in 22 had, only not quite so severe although it is lasting longer.

    Sorry to hear that Rob - hope you both recover quickly. I'm praying Yon and I don't pick up a nasty again from our upcoming return to Canada. Going to meet our latest grand daughter, Pippa, for the first time Its because of this trip that we shall not be making Prague after all. A shame, but its just too close to call

    Hi all

    For some reason I could not see this thread, had to use the search function.

    Anyway, hoping to be there, not sure if I will be flying solo or have some of the other Middlesbrough pilots with me, time will tell.

    Thanks

    Hi Andrew.
    I just checked your preferences and all seems to be in order. However, I have altered your clock from US time to GMT so that should now register correctly for you. If you spot any other annomalies please let me know.

    A quick question - I know we aren't really into the detailed planning phase. but would anyone like me to bring my air racing game for one last outing? Possibly with a completely new set of aircraft (which I'd need to start making soonish) and all the lessons learnt from the last two outings incorporated into the hopefully final streamlined rules?

  30. #80

    ABSOLUTELY.... great idea actually. As it’s our 10th Anniversary we should have a few of our favourite games from the previous years, so if anyone has any requests let us know.

    I will be honing my appaling tight turns to ensure merriment for the other contestants.
    Might the tweeked rules include bird strikes ?

    No reason why players can't bring their own aircraft

    Ideally with gimballed stands to get that nice visual effect in the turns

    I just mentioned this to Mrs B, and as Paul said, so that's 4 more of us for the racing. You might need a bigger table at this rate!

    If old games are the thing, I could resurrect the train busting raid I ran at Derby Worlds when it was held at Donington Park? Let me know if that is something you would like.

    Boaty boys Chris and I have had a prelim discussion by phone as I had to miss Hammerhead, and will try and firm something up at Partizan.

    Note:- Taranto will need a table as big as the Boaty Boys usually need plus a side table for equipment etc.

    Ok I intend to be there at Donny with +1.
    Really harsh seeing the comments about the best game, which is sails of course. I am looking to put on a historical battle, if Taranto dont take all the tables.
