Really looking forward to this weekend. Hope to see some of you there to play in my Sharp Practice and What a Tanker Games.

This was a great day at a very nice venue.

I'd like to thank the organisers, who were low-key but allowed everything to run very smoothly, and the Harrogate lads for turning up with their superb Retreat From Moscow scenario, and Rich for unleashing the mad monk potter upon the British in the Peninsular. These two games were the ones I played in and were really enjoyable - especially enhanced by Mike's cavalry charge obsession, which he reluctantly curbed in the first game but unleashed to full effect in the second . . .

The Troy game for Dux looked hugely impressive too and there was a large scale Spanish Civil War game that was in a different room but looked very characterful. There were a couple of other games running as well but I didn't really have the opportunity to see what they were about.

Good night out too, although the Karaoke pub brought on my PTSD - flashbacks to teenage years in the northeast. The horror . . . the horror . . .

I'll definitely be wanting to go to this next year, well worth the trip.

Great day, and really nice to see some new faces among the regulars, including Captain Reid. The Homeric Dux game looked fantastic, but my highlight was playing in the Harrogate 1812 game which I have been coveting ever since I first saw it at Partizan. My thanks to Jim for his hard work arranging things.

I can only concur regarding the karaoke bar which was truly horrific.

Just got home and ready to collapse. It's a long, long drive.

Phew! Sounds like I had a lucky escape by not attending the post combat curry. Perhaps bring some earplugs next year?
Ditto with the thanks to Jim and the gang for putting on such an enjoyable series of games. Deeply envious of those facilities and, thus far, the missus has vetoed a move to Durham. Still, there's always next year :)
