Genius Neil!

I had just been thinking of a convoy action but for the next solo game. Mine has a bit of a twist to it though. I will reserve that for much later in the year now.
Well done that man.
I also suggest that we give any contributor to the writing scenarios Rep from both of us to allow for the fact that there is no medal for this side of the Solo campaign. What do you think?
Also do we want to copy the rules from last year onto the sticky that I have just started with the AARs listed?

Might be a good idea. Perhaps we could have a rethink along the lines of the OTT campaigns on the Aerodrome and redo them?

How about having a look and picking out our favorite two each from previous years, not last year. and hold them in reserve in case we come up short?
