If you are still stuck for 1 more nearer the time (say end of 1st week in April), let me know and I can probably persuade Patrick to play.

Thanks to Jerry, Ben and Ray for three very enjoyable games and to Tom for organising it all.

I'm not sure I'd use the Confederate Irish again but they certainly were an interesting option at 650pts looking at the other armies I played.

Was a very enjoyable day and a respectable finish for me (for change!).

Looking forward to the Colonial round - Tom, when do our lists need to be in (assuming you are list checking!)?

thanks
