If they do not fit do you:
1) Move them nearer than 4" to the other piece?
2) Have it less than 8" from the edge?

Hi Bob,

Sorry for the delay but I wanted to check with Keith Spedding who will be the FoGR Umpire at Stoke. Keith says:

"move it the minimum distance nearer the other piece required to fit it in"

This is just a reminder for anyone playing at Stoke Challenge to get their lists into me ASAP.

When I posted this I forgot that I would be away at the BHGS Oxford Brookes event over the weekend. So that gives a little lee-way from the original deadline.

There is a slight change in player list for tomorrow. Jon Phipps cannot now attend but I am pleased that Simon Green from Burton has taken up the 10th place.

Give us a Cluedo? To save you guessing – Mr Green is not using the lead pipe in the conservatory but Late Habsburg Austrian 1688 in the Stoke TAC. :lol:

So, no big change to the R & R and we should not have any byes unless there is a last minute ‘no-show’. The first round looks like 5 BAD players against the rest.

As previously you will need to bring your own lunch but please note that Jonathan Murphy’s wife has kindly 'volunteered' to run a tea and coffee stand tomorrow. She'll also be selling some flapjacks.

Winner: Dene 'I never fail cohesion tests' Green
Second: Steve Hoult
Best painted army - by some way - Martin Stephenson

Thanks to Ray for a great day's gaming and Keith for suitably arbitrary rulings :D

Thanks to my opponents:

Martin for his unswerving ability to throw 1s on death rolls :(
Dene for passing EVERY cohesion test with his battle troops (this against a Qing Chinese) :shock:
Graham doing the dance round the centre of the table :oops: - see pic: (and Yes the red dice are one of his melee throws)

To add insult to injury when Dene refused to fail a single cohesion test on the way in when he charged I double dropped with two units and a simple fail with the third :shock:

But how we laughed :(

And congratulations to Martin Stephenson who brought a knife to a gunfight with his arquebus era Persians but who did win "Best Presented Army".

Also many thanks to Bob Medcraft and our friends at the Oxford club for the loan of 5 x 3 cloths.

Last & not least thanks to Jonathan Murphy for providing a spacious & airy venue. Also our appreciation to Mrs Murphy for manning the refreshments stall.

That's one way of looking at my performance! ;-)

Here here! When I thanked Mrs. Murphy at the end of the day her reply was something along the lines of "it's not a problem because it's been raining all day". :-)
