This year has become a swirl of happenstance.
I feel a bit Edvard Munch (scream).
Maybe we need a collectable figure to mark 2020 when it all passes?


martin :)

I suggest a Dominic Cummings miniature it can be used to mark flank entry points or when a unit appears in an unexpected place or allows a unit to pass through otherwise impassable terrain (the Barnard Castle effect). ;D

Best wishes,
Martin Buck

I know you will all be disappointed but today I have cancelled the Weymouth games weekend.
It has moved to next year, date tbc.

Thank you for all your efforts to salvage what you could from this particular piece of Covid wreckage, Stewart, but I do think it's the right decision.

Let's all hope that 2021 will see a much healthier and happier environment in which we can all get together again.

I also am sad to hear this news but I am not surprised as with the current situation.
Could I suggest at this point maybe looking forward to 2 next year ? One on our usual November weekend next year ? So Kate knows she has a confirmed booking.
But could I propose the prospect of one in March/April/May time ???  But Not a usual “Holiday” weekends ? As Easter and the Bank Holidays are about this sort of time ? (Lambing season, Easter, 2 usual May Bank Holidays, SALUTE and Aunt Betty’s Birthday anything else ? ) This would be an One off and not a regular slot. It’s just an idea ?

Nice suggestion Miles, but I think spring 2021 will be too soon. I think it may be 2022 before that could happen. I also agree with Stewart's decision to cancel, sad though it is, common sense has to prevail.

I think John is on the right track, depending on the next couple of months 'covid' infection rates, I don't see any big games being on the horizon for quite a while.

Time to look at playing by a different venue, maybe google meet or teams!

I haven’t discussed a date in November yet, I think it’s to early to plan anything until we get a handle on this pandemic.
 Has John said 2022 is probably more realistic once/if a vaccine is found and distributed.
Plenty of time to paint the hordes of German Fallschirmjager.

I am inclined to agree with John, the way things are at present.

A vaccine seems to still be a long way off.

Dave, new venue, kitchen table I think!!

2023 is more realistic if you look back at the Spanish flu 100 years ago.  Unless they come up with a miracle vaccine.

These new Restrictions that are starting over the next few hours/days are in for 6 months. So the Government is saying until the end of March 2021.
They can be tightened as and when needed.
Stewart it might be an idea to go and speak to Kate to at least in principle book next November 2021 on the principal that we might be getting to a “normal” ? But under the understanding that all could change ?
This is a crazy time we most definitely live in.....
