Summer schedule posted

Hey gang,

Sorry that took so long.  With the summer upon us and vacations taking a toll on availability this schedule took too long to put together.  It's come together now and should be an interesting collection of games.  A new entry, IABSM, was demonstrated for the group back in December and I will be trying it out as a game for the club in August.  Take a look at the list and tell me what you think.

Spring schedule change for 4/7

Well that didn't last long.  Due to my getting the date of a con wrong and the fact that Tom will be out of town that weekend I have to call for a change to the schedule.  In consultation with the group at the 3/17 meeting it was decided that we would add another SYW game into the schedule, so we will be playing a 15mm Jumbled Alliances game on the 7th.  I apologize for the short notice but it will still be a good time.

Sincerely,
Jim Fitzgerald

Spring 2018 Schedule

Hey gang,

Spring is here and it's time to post the new schedule.  Here is the plan:

Saturday - Mar 17th
15mm WWII - Panzer Grenadier Deluxe
Terry will be taking us back to the MTO.
11am Source Comics and Games


Saturday - Apr 7th
15mm TWI - Regimental Fire & Fury

The Wars of the Jumbled Alliances.
11am Source Comics and Games


Saturday - May 5th
10mm Napoleonics - Napoleon's Battles
The 1812 Campaign in Russia calls to us.

Saturday - Jun 16th
15mm Napoleonics - Napoleon's Battles
Something 1815ish
11am Source Comics and Games

The April 7th game is tentative based on the availability of Tom (as he has most of the figures.)  You are asked to bring your 15mm SYW figures just in case.  Also, in June I flipped the two games as it makes more sense to play a WWII game at the beginning of the month (D-Day) and a Napoleonics game at the end of the month (Waterloo.)  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  Hope to see you at the games!

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
