    This past weekend we held another event at Lincoln Fisheries, with 11 captains attending. Because of wind and nasty heat, we only played three sorties, but we sure did have fun in the process. There were no sinks, with only a couple ships coming close. For the first time in two years, it was an ALLIED victory. IMG_3908.JPG
    Above is a picture of Don Perez's HMS Onslow, with Dave Marshall's USS Ward.

    I have posted a picture of these two ship, because it was Dave Marshall's first full event back in R/C Combat since the 1990's. He did very well and discovered the value of a good working pump. He is currently building a US Gearing Class 3 gun destroyer.

    Now for Don's HMS Onslow. After about two years of working out little bugs with this ship, it was finally working GREAT. Don was a major reason that the allies finally pulled out a victory after so long. IMG_3934.JPG
    Above is Jeremy's FN Le Hardi (with other ships in the background), which had a very hard day of combat. A nice 3 gun French destroyer. Just looks to dam much like a Z-Boat!

    Mikella's RM Alpino (pictured from the May Event). Another new Captain and Ship, that has a lot of bugs that still need to be worked out.

    For some reason having two former members coming out to play again after almost 20 years away, did make it a bit more fun than usual. Dave played in the later 80's and Frank was there with Dan Rygasewicz, when WWCC was originally formed. Both Dave and Frank are retired and kids are grown, so they have found they have time for R/C Combat again. Dave put together the USS Ward and is now working on a USS Gearing (yesterday he picked up outfitting items for the new ship). Frank should be at our next event with his USS Maury. Picking up a couple experienced allied captain will also help with the team matchups, as the axis have dominated for the past couple years. For Frank, I hear he is taking his 1/4" "Cam" guns out of his 1/144 USS Iowa and going to mount them in a 1/72 USS San Francisco.
