Cambrai battle day
« on: January 11, 2017, 06:26:36 PM »
Firts news

Cambrai battle day on 3rd June at Nothe fort.
i will do a lot of work on this soon but not yet
Square bashing rules.    2 games in the day.   5 table frontage at 4feet per table. Units can leave one table and slide on to the next.
using the fort function room, very nice. No cost to players except possibly parking at the Nothe (Easy to park).
9.30 to 5??

Details can be sorted as time goes by but the date is probably the deal breaker/maker for you!
5 players per side????


thanks

Martin,

Please count me in too.

I should have my British force painted up by then.

Thanks for this great initiative.

I'm in with both late war British and Germans. I'll try and provide half a dozen tanks too.

After discussion last at the club last night there was interest from 4-5 players from Burton. For me its not great as its in term time, but I'd like to go. But  i think we could probably organise some sort of sharra-bang

Martin,

I have booked Liz & I into a guesthouse in Weymouth from Fri 2 June to Mon 5 June.

So, while Liz is sunbathing, I will be at Fort Nothe with you on the Saturday.

Please add me to the list. I'm sure there will be more guys from Burton confirming soon.

Well Leslie BT I have been reading your posts without realising that I knew you. Looking forward to meeting you again.
Please give me a clue where & when we met - it's my age you know!
