    All
    Some of the locals were able to get together at Gerry's build-session this past weekend and discuss the Taskforce 2 event.

    Some of the stuff we were able to iron out.
    I will be the contest-director.
    Mark will direct the Battlestations format.
    Matt will direct the Treaty format.

    Whichever format gets ready first will battle first each day.
    That being the case. The first format to battle may sneak in a third battle, or if nothing else, a third sortie in their second battle if they like.
    We are anticipating that both formats will get at least two full battles in each day.

    We currently have 15 Treaty boats listed on the database.
    And the Battlestations database is currently at 10 boats.

    It looks like we will have the best turn-out on Saturday.

    Heading out to Xenia shortly to kick off day-1 of our 3-day Taskforce 2 event.
    I will hopefully get help to figure out why I have had trouble posting photos on here, so that
    I can post photos with pour battle reports.
    I will probably be running the old Jean Bart today, so I will take my swimming gear.
    I look forward to seeing those that can attend.
    Stephen is here at the house, so we got in a little building last night.
    I will post up-dates as time permits.

    We had a great event this past weekend in Xenia.
    We had some very good battling in both formats.
    I know we had at least two Battlestations battles. I am not sure if we got in a third during the event.
    But we had some brand new boats on the water, which was very cool.
    So in short, we had lots of Treaty battles, and they were brutal. Quite a few sinks. Mostly on the axis team.
    We got in more Battlestations battles than we are used to. So that format is coming along nicely.
    We had a few of the older opperational boats in both formats sidelined in order to get the new boats on the water in time for the event.
    But there was a lot of folks having great fun with the boats in both formats.
    Lots of folks dropped in to support the event again.
    It was a truly great experience.
    Thanks to all for the support.
    I am off to work just now, so had to keep this short.
    I will post the extended version in the near future.
