Title: SUNDAY JUNE 2ND 2019 - D-Day 75th All Day/Posh Lard 2019
Post by: Mike Whitaker on April 02, 2019, 10:19:23 am
OK - who would be interested in running games for a D-Day 75th anniversary club all day event on Sunday Jun 2nd (can't do the 9th as I'm away).

I'd be happy to put on the Bloody Omaha (big IABSM) game we're taking to Salute.
I could probably cobble together another IABSM game as well (given enough folks willing to play/run) as I have plans for a Carentan-area game at Chef du Pont.
I know Gary has enough scenery to run Brecourt Manor as either Chain of Command or Bolt Action.
ISTR someone at the club has a Pegasus Bridge table, and I suspect there are other possible BA scenarios
I can ask Mark Julian if he'd be willing to run something in 6mm with the new Blitzkrieg Commander v4 rules.

Outside interest from:
- the Gravesend folks - willing to bring an 82nd Airborne Chain Of Command St Mere Eglise game
- Richard Crawley - CoC Invasion of France by Italy 1942

Thinking of making the theme 'Invasion' and have asked Andy H if he'd be free and able run a Saxon seaborne raid in Dux B

Having put feelers out, there's some interest in having this as Posh Lard 2019 - the Gravesend guys are up for bringing a St Mere Eglise Chain Of Command game.

We have the 4ground Pegasus bridge model built in 15mm as well as a few other bits like a warbases Horsa. Would be very happy to lend if they are any use.  Not sure if we can make the 2nd ourselves as we had already planned to be at Games expo that weekend

Ok - we are GO....

Sunday June 2nd (yes, I know this clashes with the last day of UK Games Expo...), 9am-6pm (although games will probably start around 10am). We may well decamp to the Brewery Tap for some of their excellent Thai food afterwards.

The games available will be under the theme "Invasion" and are likely to be:

* Bloody Omaha (IABSM) - Peterborough (Mike) - yes, this is your chance if you missed us at Salute.
* St. Mere Eglise (CoC) - Gravesend
* Brecourt Manor (CoC) - Peterborough (Gary)
* Menton 1940 (CoC) - Richard Crawley

Admission is £5 (since this isn't a tournament and we don't have to cover prizes!), and you can sign up at http://www.peterborough-wargames-club.org.uk/tc-events/posh-lard-2019/
