Thanks to everyone for last night - there is still one game to play before I write up what happened in June 1643. I will check the world cup schedule before confirming the date for July 1643.

In June 1643 the Royalists regained some of the ground lost in May and generally had the better of the skirmishing in Lincolnshire. The probing attacks from Oxford failed to make much headway and raiding by the Newark garrison was seen off by Parliament.
July 1643 will be on the 16th July [England will have won the world cup the day before!].
The scenarios are all based around the need to forage for supplies and are: Mission C - King's War Chest [now known as "The Powder Train"]  Mission F- Steak On The Hoof  &  Mission I- Foraging at the Village. I will be providing all the wagons, cattle and clubmen needed. The Royalists will be the attackers in this round. I will be tweaking the victory conditions to make sure they are comparable in terms of possible Honour gained.
Just a heads up - August will be about a siege and September will be scenarios not in the book. The final game in October will be a big battle with the two sides lined up against each other and you will be fielding everything you have got left.

Please confirm if you will be there on the 16th.
