A couple of Amerikaner and I plan to do a quick tour of the Ardennes before the tournament. We'd like to hire a guide for this tour and also for the area around the Kall valley. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

I remember that we did this a number of years ago before Grenadier with some of the attendants. There is a museum in Vossenack, here is a link:


It might be just the place you are looking for


We took a walk with the guide on the Kall trail (Mestrenger Mühle), visited the Sanitäts-Bunker, and some other terrain relevant to the action there augmented by a visit and special guided tour through that museum. As far as I recall, the guided tour was in English language.

The Hürtgenwald museum is small but contains a lot of well-arrayed historical stuff. Take the BFP maps for Schmidt and Vossenack and use them as local maps. Only problem is that in November there is not much day-licht and it's quite wet.

Means what ? A squad ? A platoon ? A company ? Do they play ASL ? Maybe you guys top the presence of the Dutch and French at GRENADIER then ?

Highly recommend the museum at Baugnez (Malmedy). It's the newest in the region. Diekirch museum also good, more old fashioned. For an overnight, Clervaux or Vianden have great castles and old towns. You may even be able to lodge in the castles.

Working for GRENADIER 2020...

So far I have created for or updated to VASL v6.5 12 out of 15 scenarios of the tournament selection as well as 3 out of 6 of the three mini-tournaments.

Thus, I am pretty confident that this year, I'll manage all 21 of them a good deal before the start of the tournament.

When done and clearance by the TD is in, I will post them here.

Cheers,

I am not sure if you are referring to the scenario list as well as the VASL files here, hence my question:

Has the scenario list for Grenadier 2020 been published?
If yes, where?
if no, when?

To my knowledge, the scenario list for Grenadier is not yet complete and for that reason has not yet been published.

But it is quite a bit of work to create 21 VASL-files (15 tournament / 3x2 Minis) for Michael, which he is likely to make available to the participants to ease making defensive setups beforehand especially for the afternoon rounds so as to save time on site. Furthermore, because both of us are playing throughout the year testing some scenarios for their suitability for Grenadier, I have necessarily something of a headstart knowledge of the list.

The publishing of the scenario list and decision about distribution of the VASL files lies with Michael, though, as he is the tournament director of Grenadier. My role is merely to support Grenadier by the VASL files and scenario testing.

My objective is to have all 21 VASL files in the current v6.5 ready at the same time when the scenario list is published.

Thanks, I fully understand.

I just hoped I could get "a head start" on playing through the scenarios as well.

But I don't worry yet - so far Michael has always published the scenario list well ahead of the tournament. :)

The Scenarios for the main Tournament should follow by the end of June... Latest.

And thanks to the Oberst for his much valued work... Will send him a bottle of Rothschild.

Check out the GRENADIER HP, aslgermany.de for details.
As soon as Herr Oberst is sober (he had a meeting at the officers club last night... as every night to be honest) he will present you the VASL files...

I have to apologize for the rudeness of my orderly Koch. While perfectly capable of 'organizing' almost anything out of nowhere, his refinement in the distinguished intercourse with the fair sex is painfully lacking.

Of course it would have been out of the question to urge God's heavenly creature, with whom I had the privilege of most pleasant conversation at yesterday's small celebration at the casino, to leave this morning before she found it to be the proper time.
