    How will the battling be? Alternating sorties (BBS, then Treaty or vice versa) or mixed sorties (both types at the same time)? Also, is there a frequency tree? I may try to make it out there if I can, depends on work. I'm on channel 61.

    HI there I thought we would try alternating sorties,that would give everyone a chance to see others battle. BBs sorties first and then Treaty, Sunday we can change things around a bit. Who know we may try a mix!

    Hey guys due to it being fathersday weekend and there being a big carshow I am afraid that we have to move the battle , I have been told that there is simply no hotel rooms, so with this in mind I am trying to move it to June 23 and 24.

    The BBS (Buckeye Battle Squadron) is a fast gun club located in Ohio, with some rules which are close, but not exactly IRCWCC/MWCI standard. Washington Treaty Combat is located mainly in the Ohio/PA/MD/VA area and is something of a hybrid of big gun and small gun combat. We (treaty) have taken what we think is the best of each format and mixed it together, and have a core group of both big gun and small gun veterans. Our first battle was earlier this year in Ravenna, OH, but there are several guys out in the Dayton area as well. Our second battle was last weekend in PA, and have some more battles scheduled in both Ohio and PA this summer.

    Good Mike

    Mikey here.
    I live just northwest of Dayton.
    We have several skippers in the Dayton area. Mainly Treaty guys, some of which are also doing big gun.
    Same can be said for the Cinci area.
    There are also a couple big gunners, that might also be battling to Treaty rules in Lexington, and another new big gunner in Louisville.
    We have an IRCWCC guy.
    We have one 96th scale guy with a ship almost complete. (me)
    I am also in the MWC, IRCWCC, and BBS, but have no ships set up to run in those clubs, as I am focusing on Treaty mainly, and big gun, and 96th scale to some extent.
    When will you be moving out this way, and what ships do you have?

    Hey!

    Took me a while to find where I posted :) I have Randy Thorne's old gneisnau (144 bigguns), although it needs a very thorough refit after the sinkings I took a while back: and I'm probably going to give away my poor shot up old liberty to the MABG as a club boat...

    I have a couple of hulls and a bunch of plans :)

    I'm moving somewhere near Batavia, by Sept 1st... Hopefully I can find a property with a pond.

    I'm looking forward to being out that way, moving permitting (It's gonna be ruff) I'd like to attend a meet or two. It seems that I should plan on building to participate in several formats :)

    All
    The Treaty group was invited to attend the BBS battle held this
    weekend in Newark Ohio, and I would have to say that fun was had by all.
    The turn-out was a little on the low side, with 11 boats that I can
    recall.

    Strasbourg Mikey Treaty
    Suffren Phil A. Treaty
    Gloire Kevin Treaty
    Mogami Lee Treaty

    New Zealand Alan BBS
    Yamato Lee BBS
    SoDak Buddy BBS
    Suzuya Kate BBS
    Scharnhorst WW1 Lee BBS

    Shimikaze Jeff C. Big gun (ran with BBS)
    Mogador Jeff C. Big gun (ran with BBS)

    Bob Spy, and Crispin also attended, and Greg R. was able to drop in for
    a little while.
    Those that had spare boats to loan, and some that only had one boat,
    that was offered up for loan, carried the day, and fun was had by all.

    The fun started with a BBS battle, with the Shimikaze allowed to re-
    arm her single shot torps, and re-join as often as she could.
    I think it was Lee's Yamato against New Zealand, Suzuya, and Shimikaze.
    Lee was able to hold his own, and spread the damage around on all that
    attacked him, but all present were amazed at the sound of the big gun
    torps on the little jap DD. Most had never experienced a big gun battle.
    Alan bore the brunt of Lee's attack, but held the line.

    When BBS finished up the sortie, the Treaty ships hit the water.
    I think the first battle was my Strasbourg against Suffren, Mogami,
    and Gloire.
    All of the cruisers had a slight speed advantage on my battlecruiser,
    and could also out-turn me, so the drill was that the big Frenchie gets
    pounded from all sides while trying to bring her sidemounts into play.
    A true exercise in futility on my part, but I think that the cruiser
    skippers liked not being run down by a capitalship with side mounts,
    except when I caught one napping.
    The sortie ended with the cruisers on-five, out of ammo, but able to
    outpace the battlecruiser, which was still carrying plenty of ammo, but
    couldn't put it to use.

    Then it was time for the BBS second sortie.
    This sortie started off pretty much the same as the first, but the
    Shimikaze ran into trouble, and the Yamato was able to bring her pump
    stream (which was out the stern of the ship) into play, and pretty much
    hosed the little ship down till she sank. Laughter spread like wildfire.
    New Zealand got too close to the shoreline and struck a rock, and
    developed rudder trouble, but was able to survive.
    I think the Scharnie was also in this sortie, on the side of the
    Yamato, with Crispin, Kevin, or Jeff running her. And the Shimikaze may
    have had someone else at the controls.

    Next was the Treaty sortie 2.
    After learning in the first sortie that a 31 knot battlecruiser cannot
    chase down 33, and 36 knot cruisers with twin rudders, I tried to let
    the cruisers do most of the attacking early on, and I had more success
    using my stern cannon as my primary weapon, and the sidemounts when the
    opportunity presented itself.
    I also got some much needed help as Buddy decided to run Kate's Suzuya
    to the Treaty format, and escorted my out this time around.
    At some point, I think the Gloire sank, but not from too much battle
    damage. A pump failure I think was the issue
    Although I still got pounded on from all sides, and was thouroughly
    frustrated at the end of the sortie, when I was again the only one with
    ammo left, and un-able to bring sidemounts into play against multiple
    cruisers that were not damaged enough to slow them down to less than my
    speed, I felt that I had had a better sortie than the first.

    Next was BBS battle 2 (sortie 1).
    Buddy had showed up, and was able to add his SoDak to the festivities.,
    and the teams were SoDak, New Zealand, and the big gun Mogador (run by
    Lee), against Yamato (loaned to Crispin), and Scharnie (loaned to Jeff,
    Kevin, or someone).
    This time the allies pressed the big Jap and tried to get her in a
    sandwich between them, but Crispin was too aloof to get caught by both
    at the same time, and did a good job of defending the Scharnie (which
    got into trouble).
    Lee got into trouble early on, and when the pump failed to come on,
    the little French DD went to Davey Jone's locker.

    Next was Treaty battle 2 (sortie 1).
    I will be honest. I can't recall what the teams were. I might have had
    a cruiser runnng escort with my Strasbourg, but I do recall that I had
    a bunch of fast, well turning cruisers, pounding the stuffing out of me
    again, and at the end of the sortie, I again had ammo on-board, and
    couldn't find a target for it.

    I am sure that I forgot somethings, but hopefully I didn't forget
    anyone.
    It was great fun, with great folks, with great boats.
    Early on there was talk about mixing the fleets as we didn't have a
    lot of ships from either format, but I for one, have to say that I am
    glad we decided to stick it out, and keep the formats seperate, so that
    one and all could actually see the various rulesets in action.

    In closing.
    The one thing that got older than having to sit and patch the damage
    from a wolfpack of nimble cruisers that I could never seem to come to
    grips with, was having to listen to Bob Spy (who by some chance just
    happened to always sit near my table) keep mentioning just how much
    damage my battlecruiser was taking from a wolfpack of nimble cruisers,
    that I could never seem to come to grips with.
    And when I would take a moment to wipe my brow, he was always there,
    almost beaming with glee.

    Thanks to all for a great R/C combat experience.
    Mikey
