    I do hope you can manage to get that done Neil.
    I am getting withdrawal symptoms without any new AAR's to read.

    Good luck with your operation next week. I will be awaiting your escape from the sawbones clutches.
    Let us be thankful that things are a bit better than they were in Nelson's day.

    On another point Neil.
    If you need someone to do the August scenario, I guess I am up for it if there are no other takers.
    Just let me know.

    Have a look at post 146 Neil.
    I will be really sorry if we lose Jim as a shipmate.
    He has contributed so much.

    My first AAR's since January. It will be awhile before I post again but at least there are two warmers into the bank as my training Sgt used to say.

    Could the results of my last 2 AAR's be published in the spreadsheet please. I have added the RTP and damage plus the 2 captured ships. Just need the scores.

    Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I wanted to give Nightmoss time to get his scenario in. Please, if you still can, do the August scenario.

    Thanks,

    I am looking forward to your September mission Neil.
    Are you O.K. for doing it or could you use the time better on Donny prep?

    With all the will in the world Doncaster has taken over my life for the past few months and recovery from major op 2.

    Cheers for taking the September mission Rob.

    I think in reality my SoG Solo Campaign will have to wait until way after Doncaster is finished as I will have post Doncaster write ups to do and a plethora of other things. But I will get them done.

    Neil, as nothing seems to be forthcoming for October would you like me to move up my December mission to fill the gap?

    Ok m'hearties what doth the wind blow for 2018 campaigns wise?

    1. Do we want to continue in present format?
    2. Do we want bi-monthly campaign games ie 3 for Nation v Nation and 3 for Privateers et al?
    3. Some other combination or idea?

    Personally, I would be happy to do a bi monthly if that suited other players, rather than what has happened this year with shipmates marooned as the year progressed. Even I am not getting the AARs completed by the end of month deadline.
    If we adopt that approach, anyone with a personal game played among friends may have time to slip that in in an intervening month.

    The Aye's have it then.

    2018's Campaign will be as follows:

    February: Nation v Nation

    April: Letters of Marque

    June: Nation v Nation

    August: Letters of Marque

    October: Nation v Nation

    December: Letters of Marque

    If all are happy with that?

    Looks good to me Neil.
    Still enough to have one off and qualify for that medal if you choose to take part in both games. May I make one suggestion in that if a player so wishes they can dovetail the LoM with the NvN so that one of their chosen characters may appear in both campaigns. ie. a French Privateer aiding the Fleet by spying on the enemy, or say my Indiamen taking part in a Fleet action, or a Fleet Captain on a special single ship mission along with say a Spanish treasure ship. Whatever you can come up with within the scenario as set by the writer.
