26th June - a new dawn in UK gaming?
« on: February 22, 2021, 06:49:01 PM »
If all goes to plan, according to today's announcements 26th June could be the first Saturday those of us in the UK are allowed out to play again?

How about "just" 105 days - that's much better, isn't it?

Most of us should have had both Jabs and has time for it to have done its bedding period by then as well.

The Sun is saying today that it's actually 118 days to go, so we have time for some remedial maths (do you know a good teacher, Martin?) before we can play again.

Back in Feb 2020 I attended a war game competition where one of the participants was insistent that the Covid thing was all nonsense and would prove to  be no worse than the flu.
Looking forward to playing some games in the last year I have only played two games of Alien Squad Leader and one game of Dragon Rampant

But Simon, surely the rules do not apply to me?
One has to go by instinct and not the law surely?

I travelled to Portsmouth and Brighton yesterday as I got a bit of sawdust in my eye and had to check it was Ok after a quick wash of it.

Now, what to do about my sore finger?  Maybe a train journey to London to check it?

They don't want you there Luis. They don't like sharing with foreigners!

Andy - in the process of becoming a foreigner.

Very sorry to hear that, Martin - a sore finger at this time must be unbearable.

While in London, we could probably hire a restaurant for an impromptu knees-up, as I think a celebrity such as yourself is probably above the current rules guidance?

Following that, would you perhaps like a little pootle around the Med on my gin palace to recuperate (I hear it's risky staying in the UK with all this sickness about)?

Meanwhile, I do hope you drove yourself to both Portsmouth and Brighton, to check that you could see alright while behind the wheel?

Well, this is good news.

Stewart could start early negotiations with the hotel!

A trip down south could be just 2,832 hours away.

Luis donít take any notice, whether we are in or out of the ďEUĒ doesnít relate that we are still all European and as such technically not foreigners.
 Having had the pleasure of many hours on various Ferries and the train crossing the Channel and back and forth Bournemouth to Paris 2-3 times a week. Iíve had many a conversations, jokes and good laughs with Lorry drivers, regardless where they came from in Europe, even with a language barrier, as all of us, doing the same basic job sharing the same make of lorries, the same roads and routes there was always a way to convey even a minor conversion, about something we did while out on the road.
It would be a pleasure to see you down here on the South Coast of England, anytime you wanted to come over.
