Refight of Midway 10 June in Slimbridge

Postby Kingpenguin » Wed Apr 26, 2017 11:29 pm

After the success of last year's Jutland game, the NWG are organising a refight of the battle of midway using the innovative and interactive rules of Mr David Manley. Hosted at the Tudor Arms in Slimbridge on 10 June, this will be a fantastic day of gaming. If you feel like supporting a good cause, you can also donate to the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC) to support all those serving and retired servicemen an women helped by this worthy charity. Please get in touch if you fancy joining in. No previous naval wargame experience necessary, you will be given everything you need on the day.

I'll chat to you next time I see you. Thinking about it I have quite a few questions.

I'm trying to weasel out of another commitment for that weekend (weaseling out of things is what separate human beings from animals... except the weasel); assuming I manage, I'd like to get involved.

I assume anyone who arrives late on the day gets command of Task Force Thirty Four? The world wonders. (Edit: I'm aware that's a different battle. But for the purposes of a contrived joke, it still works...)

Hi Alex, it'd be great if you can come along. Please mention your interest to David Manley and tell him that you heard about it from my post here, cheers

I'm afraid I must be one of the few people in the world not on Facebook!

For anyone who is still on the fence about going, I can recommend this - the Jutland event held last year was a great success. Also, if it helps, I will be driving to and from Bristol so can offer a lift if that's a factor for anyone.
