Very tempting. How to you get to "Ver" from any international airport (probably Paris)? Will you have a pre-published scenario list? Any special Theme for the tournament?

Ver is 1 hour by car from Rennes and Caen, 3h30 from Paris.
You are the first player to manifest some interest. If no player from Paris is coming, the best is to take the Paris-Granville train line and stop at Villedieu.
If less than 8 players interested, i will not organize the tournament but the meeting will be maintained (it's a national wargame convention).
For scenarii, i will publish the list un february ; classical format with a choice of 3 by round. One particularity, each round will have also one sk and/or one full infantry scenario for starting players ; one of the both will be a must play if a player is labelled a "debutant".

As that weekend marks the beginning of a school break, expect heavy traffic on Friday afternoon from Paris to Normandy, lengthening travel time by 1 to 2 hours. Weather may have an impact (more people will leave Paris if weather is expected to be good). And pick a GPS at the car rental desk, it's a small town.

By train it would roughly be the same time:

- 80-minute 'bus direct' ride between Charles de Gaulle airport and the Montparnasse train station
+
- 3h average train ride between Paris and Villedieu-les-Poeles (one train every two-three hours)

To avoid misunderstandings from our foreign friends, a little edition of the last paragraph:

For scenarii, i will publish the list un february ; classical format with a choice of 3 by round. One particularity, each round will have also one sk and/or one full infantry scenario for starting players ; one of the both will be a must play if a player is labelled a "debutant".
Edition: For scenarios i will release the list in February; classical format with 3 scenarios per round. However each round will also feature a ASLSK/ASL infantry-only scenario which shall be played instead if your opponent is deemed to be by the TD a 'beginner'.

I hope this helps.

Odds of a strike with good Summer weather? -- jim
