Upcoming schedule for Winter 2018

Hey gang,

Here is the upcoming schedule for the winter of 2018.  Please note that I am including a final game for 2017.  I was asked to find some time to demo IABSM for the group and it had to be done this week as a representative of Meeples and Miniatures and 2 Fat Lardies would be in town and wanted to show how it's played.  If you have time on Friday, 12/29, come on down and give it a try!

Finishing up the year strong!

Hey gang,

Here is the remainder of the schedule from Black Friday through December.  We've added an extra game on Nov. 25th due to the amount of interest in playing something but about half of the group can only play on one day or the other.  Here is the schedule:

Friday - Nov 24th
15mm Ancients - Field of Glory
Something Punic this way comes.
10am Source Comics and Games


Saturday - Nov 25th
15mm Napoleonics - Napoleon's Battles
Fun in the snow!  Come down and play Eylau.
11am Source Comics and Games


Saturday - Dec 2nd
15mm ACW - Regimental Fire & Fury
Somewhere in Pennsylvania I think.
11am Source Comics and Games


Saturday - Dec 16th
15mm WWII - Panzer Grenadier Deluxe
Terry will be taking us back to the MTO.
11am Source Comics and Games

We've decided to do something different this year on Black Friday and play some Ancients.  The Punic War era game is really anything from the Western Mediterranean and Gaul.  Joe Knight will be running the Eylau game on the 25th.  The ACW scenario on the 2nd will be pulled from one of the invasions of the North, just not sure which one yet.  As always, all experience levels are welcome and figures will be provided (though you are encouraged to bring your own to play with.)  Most of the games will start at noon with the exception of the Ancients game which should kick off closer to 10:00 am.  Hope to see you there!

Sincerely,
Jim Fitzgerald

Schedule for this summer and fall

Hey gang,

Here's the upcoming schedule for this summer and fall.  It reflects the changes that were requested at the June 3rd game and may be subject to change.  On the 3rd the crew decided to establish a fixed schedule of games on the 3rd Saturdays of each quarter.  We will be alternating 15mm WAS/SYW, 15mm Samurai, and 15mm WWIII/Star Wars X-wing on those dates.  Any questions or concerns please contact me.

Sincerely,
Jim Fitzgerald

Schedule for the rest of the Winter and part of the Spring

And no plan ever seems to survive the first five minutes of combat...

With Tom off in the Orient we have had to change our first game in February again.  This time we are going from the TWI to Star Wars Attack Wing (by acclamation.)  Check out the new schedule to the right.  Hopefully we can successfully schedule the next TWI game for May.  Another schedule point to notice is that we have multiple games scheduled for the weekend after Valentine's Day.  This is because Con of the North moved off of the second weekend in February to the third.  In the past we have put on demo games at the con in conjunction with the Source and this year will be no different.  We will be running games at the con on Friday and Saturday and will be putting on a Napoleon's Battles game at the Source on Saturday for those that can't attend the con.

So that's our schedule.  Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns about the schedule.  Hope you can attend the games.  See you there!

Schedule changes for Winter 2017

Of course it didn't last...

Due to poor planning on my part and some wildly optimistic appraisals of what would be done by January we have had to move the schedule around a bit.  First off, the Assyrian-Babylonian game had to be pushed out because of a combination of events that would make it nearly impossible to put on (incl. the 40 Assyrian chariots that were probably not going to be done in time, the Babylonian opponents were also pushed back, and the Medes necessary to make it a game were unavailable.)  That game has moved to the last game in March.

So that means that we have to move some games around.  First, the new 2nd game in January will be another favorite, Samurai.  That game is moving from February.  To replace the Samurai game we will be throwing on another 15mm TWI game on the 1st weekend in February.  Both will be good times.

Finally, we will be putting on our traditional demo games at Con of the North again this year.  These games will include 15mm Koenig Kreig, 15mm Samurai, 15mm Napoleon's Battles, and 15mm Wilderness Wars.  That weekend will also see a requested 15mm Napoleon's Battles game at the Source run by Jeff Johnson.

The next three months will be busy busy for us.  Hope you can make it down for some of the games.
