Today we’d like to give some publicity to an upcoming charity event. This is a refight of Jutland (a historical version rather than our Aeronef one !) in aid of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines charity. It’s taking place at HMS Flying Fox, a Royal Naval Reserve base in Bristol. Participants are being sought, contact details are on the poster below.
We’ve made a very modest contribution towards supporting the event, supplying identification flags for the models.
Every year, Phil LeHunt organises the Australian New Year’s Eve Aeronef Championships, hosted by the Monday Knights.
Planning is underway for this year’s event and the format will be similar to that of the last four years – three rounds, scenario driven – however this year there’s a change in fleet construction, with players using 150CP Aeronef fleets. (Instead of the 400pt fleets used in previous years).
This is the 5th year that the event has been held, and each year Brigade have provided some prize support for the winner and runner-up (we’d love to attend in person but shipping the stand over would involve just a bit of excess baggage charges !). You can read the umpire’s report on last year’s event to get a feel for how much fun they seem to have.
So if you’re down under, fancy a bit of ‘neffing on New Year’s Eve, contact Phil – I’m sure he’d love to see more players.
