    I was wondering if we could find some way of honouring the scenario writers as well as the players, because over a period of time they also clock up quite a few posts.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    Thanks for the breakdown Neil.
    The numbers for Scenarios played tallies with mine, so medal issue is correct.
    I had no stats on writers but it looks as if you have carried the can for most of that, so thank you.
    No one else has enough on the board to worry about thus far.

    It is always great to see a game without the added strain of having to write a long diatribe after it.
    That was a refreshing look at a young player just enjoying the game.
    That's what it is really all about. Let us never forget that aspect.

    I don't have much spare time to spend with my kids at the moment and now that I have three of them I makes sure to spend some time with each of them individually at the weekends. Hugh likes tabletop games so we play a couple of hours of sails or xwing a week.

    I'd like to say I give him an advantage and that's why he wins... But it isn't...

    Gonna try to catch up this week. Friends wedding, 4 month old, work, in laws, clogged sewer line, and the list goes on... I've set up my table three times to be interrupted each time. Going to have to get a permanent table set up instead of the dinning room table. Besides that I have ships being demasted all the time. ��

    Now you know why they spent so much time at sea.

    You mistake his rank, sir.

    That is a captains dress uniform of the 1812 regulation with later epaulettes and hats. I would say 1840ies or something like that.

    The man front centre must be Nelson or I'm a blind Dutchman looking down a telescope the wrong way in a snow storm. He only has one arm......there again didnt Nelson loose an eye before his arm? Must remember to book myself in for a date at the opticians, I hear the new spectacles are rather good.

    He lost sight on the eye but he didn't actually loose the eye if I remember correctly, so you must be right.

    That is correct Jonas. He never covered the eye with a patch, so Neil has no need to make a spectacle of himself.

    Could we get the Rosta up to date please so that the July mission can be played with the ships in their correct state of readiness.
    Thanks.

    I'm now resigned to the fact that I will not get any gaming in until Doncaster. Still got oodles of prep to do for the Doncaster weekend and real life is about to get in the way again next Tuesday.

    Still, I've got this week to get much of the ground work done.

    Probably best if you remove me from August scenario responsibility. I'm pretty much done with SoG for the foreseeable future. Too busy with Naval Action and other gaming interests.

    Well it's good to hear from you at any rate Jim. Do keep in touch from time to time, until you can return to play again. I always appreciate your AARs as you know.
    Sail with a fair wind my friend.

    Sorry to hear you are so up to the neck in it Neil. Is there anything I can do to help out?

    Special Project 2 is underway (A rather large model) then it's just stuff for my game on Friday China 1938. (Decals for 6 aircraft mainly). The priority is SP2. I'm chipping away at it each time I get some free time but putting in extra hours at work to make up for the July shortfall has crippled my spare time last month. Trying to get the bigger pieces done so it's just a final construction around begining of September. Hoping I've not missed anything on the Doncaster Admin side as we need this to go like clockwork.

    Eventually my gaming table is free of clutter and I've given myself the task of sailing at least 1 AAR before I go into hospital next Tuesday.
