We have been asked if we would like to bring the Dambusters Challenge to the above. The only issue with this is that it's a Friday, so those of us who are regular/experienced Dambusters 'managers' would need to take a day off (those of us who are various forms of retired obviously wouldn't!)

If there's enough interest, I'll accept.

Interested parties below, please!

So far: Mike, Grahame, Rob, Reuben

Bump: again, they need an answer soonish. Promises to be a great day, I think, and good publicity for the club.

We're confirmed for this - more details next month. If anyone else wants to come along I will need DoB, address and car make/model/reg ahead of time so Coningsby can issue passes.

I'd like to take some time in June/July to tart up the game a bit:

1) change to a better, less clunky stand with power in the plane.... looks like we could maybe fit one of these https://www.duracell.com/en-ca/product/ultra-lithium-28l-battery/ (25mm long, so would be slightly over-scale) as a bouncing bomb... (my CR2032 'coin' cell plan doesn't work as they don't produce enough current)

2) tune the rules a bit so we're clear on what being too short/low/long/fast/slow/high actually does, and maybe tweak the damage effects a bit.

3) historical display - more books from my Dambusters collection... anything else?

4) toying with another diorama side table with a Lanc ready for take off, if we have/could build a second kit + the Airfix control tower etc?

5) smarten up the dam - some corners have got a bit knocked and the cloth is a bit frayed

6) ditto the hills, and paint the edges.

7) those blasted spotlights under the Lanc

Cool sort out power for the searchlights

9) torpedo nets

10) any other hairbrained ideas I may have mentioned to Rob over the weekend Cheesy

Various of my books are available for loan if anyone wants to remind themselves of the full details of the raid so they can talk sense Cheesy
