Martin will be the Finnish on 4-6 and Dave will be the Russians on 1-3. :D

Just kidding, another well done episode.

Another enjoyable episode!

I'm green with envy that you two will be having some face to face play soon. It seems we are
at least a month away from that!

I agree with Sgt Barker about the Guards Counterattack. I think its popularity is more for reasons
of nostalgia then anything else. I think it is a poor scenario to introduce a new player to ASL, and yet
it is often one of the first people will give as a suggestion.

IIRC, even the SL designers notes talk about establishing good fire-bases and movement being a
bit secondary. Having said all this, even a crappy scenario (which Guards Counterattack is not) is
better than no scenario at all!

As far as the IR tournament, I think I will put my maple syrup behind fellow Canadian David Garvin.

I'm certainly not happy that I will not be at Double One in June...it would have been grand to see
both of you live. My plans are to be there in 2021 however.

Again, a very entertaining episode.

I predict that Martin will win the tournament.

Seriously ;)- we have been delayed because I have had some real life distractions. We will get onto it this week.

My money's on that Mareske fellow.

Kelly's Heroes is a war movie like Die Hard is a Christmas movie :). Yes, Donald Sutherland gives a performance for the ages, but we cannot overlook Gavin Macleod playing his much put-upon tank driver Moriarty with the Negative Waves about their Tiger tank ("It's a piece of junk!"), nor Don Rickles at his sarcastic best ("You get a cookie").

I wanna see you guys play Acts of Defiance. Been a while.

You paid to watch Kelly's Heroes! It's shown on the free channels virtually every UK holiday..............

Many thanks for another fun episode.
