Plus as it is Medieval there probably won't be any lists in time, that said if I am near the bottom and my opponent wants to then I'd be happy to play V3 with what we have

Are they really full at 20 places? David Bannister and I for a start seem to have missed out. Will they up the number of places?

They do tend to shuffle places a little, however some of the other periods have been running a waiting list for some months already, whereas FoG still appears to have 1 place still open as of today.

There is one more space at warfare for FOG am as of today, although it doesn't show on the main list the organiser has confirmed one more slot. I am registered now , so its 21/22 at present.

David :D

Hi all,

Just a reminder that lists were supposed to be with me last weekend. Can I have the missing ones (about half of you ...) a.s.a.p?

Thanks,

Tim

Do you have Graham Evans in FoG AM?

I think he appears in the list for DBMM, but he told me at Derby that he thought that he'd entered AM - and has never played DBMM !

Many apologies gents - I tried to post the R&R here at the end of last week, but for whatever reason it hasn't appeared. Let's try again.

Lots of different armies, some more "different" than others!

John Patrick Gloucester Free Company
Steve  Brown PAW Later Medieval Scots (Continental)
Derek Bartlett PAW Italian Condotta
Paul Bartlett  PAW Swiss
David Putt Plymouth Later Low Countries
Dave Morrison Gloucester Medieval Danish
Steve Murton Reigate Later Sicilian
Graham Briggs Reigate Mamluk Egyptian
Jon Akers Independent Ordonnance French
David Fairhurst Oxford Later Anglo-Irish
Lynda Fairhurst Oxford Swiss
Dave Ruddock Reigate Early Ottoman Turkish
Graham Evans Pinner Later Medieval Scots (Continental)
Malcolm Gordon Durham 100YW English (Continental)
John Edwards Durham Ordonnance French
Phil Jelley Oxford Medieval Portuguese
Ian Carbutt Wessex Swiss
Chris Tofalos MAWS 100YW English (Continental)
Martyn Simpson Wessex Ordonnance French
David Bannister Wessex Late Byzantine
Craig Bryon Oxford Medieval Crown of Aragon

Your umpires for the weekend will be Graham Briggs and Dave Fairhurst, so play nicely. Dave Mather will very kindly be running the overall competitions and dealing with the timings, the scores and draws etc., so that I can play! :shock:

Parking at the site - the Rivermead parking machines have been out of order for a while, but were scheduled to be repaired over the last weekend. Don't forget to pay for parking (there's a RingGo thing, I think) as otherwise you will get hit with a £60/£100 charge, which would be much better spent on the traders' stands or the world-famous Warfare Bring & Buy!

Check-in on Saturday is from 8.30-9.15, and we aim to get going by 9.30 but sooner if you are all here on time. Sunday round 3 will start at 9.00 - earlier that Saturday so that we can finish earlier and start you on your journies home, tired but no doubt flushed with success and laden with Wyverns. :wink:

Well he can't qualify for Central London as he hasn't reached the required level of achieving 6 breaks of your own army in a 5 round comp :mrgreen:

Phil Powell went to Reigate for years. You don't see him cringing behind soft Southern shandy drinkers.

I did once achieve 4 breaks out of 4 of my army in a 4 round comp, we had so much time left we swapped armies and my army broke again under new owner ship,still before anyone else had finished.
Must have been something about the list

Neither am I. If I'm down as Reigate I should only play flat cap wearing northerners.
