  1. Updated the main post with the details from ZEKE. ZEKE and phyfor88: thanks for putting this on.
  2. Calendar dates -- Rules -- Period -- Theatre -- Terrain September 16-30 -- Flames of War -- Late -- D-DAY SPECIAL -- Beach or mixed % - Featuring the new D-Day German Book I will bring Germans and Americans to loan. No beach mission yet.

  3. BTW, when the organizes have the details set, I can update the 1st post in this thread
  4. Did u mean "Let's get a date set," ? Yes plz, soon. Want to promote this as much as possible
  5. BTW, also planning a D-Day mega battle on SAT, the 6th of June, 2020: 5 tables, 4 forces 2 beaches (1 Amer and 1 Brit or Canadian), 1 airborne table, 1 inland panzer counterattack table* + 1 staging table for the many models. *We will compress the timeline on one table to include a German armored counterattack. See "Stopping The Panzers" by Marc Milner. That way, the Germans can do something other than defend.
  6. “Paratroopers, like professional baseball players, acquire certain superstitions,” he said. “With me I have always stuck a cigar in my mouth when about to make a jump and my men all know it. They take it for good luck.” Quoted from "D-Day: Paratrooper from Upstate New York is the first to land in France" https://www.newyorkupstate.com/binghamton/2019/06/d-day-paratrooper-from-upstate-new-york-is-the-first-to-land-in-france.html Guy was a pathfinder. Great stories

  10. NOTE: The recent change in GG store alcohol policy means that minors can participate in this tournament. I made the decision that 14+ was the appropriate age restriction for appropriate maturity and behavior in this competetive event.
