In the Second League Kåre Jacobsens German defenders defeated Massimilliano Colosimos Americans in SP247 Golden Arrow.The Germans took some losses in the beginning,but withdrew across the stream in good order.The American charge across the stream fell apart after some good shooting by the Germans.

VASL Top League Result

Marc Hanna as the Americans defeated the Germans controlled by Ken Young in J51, Canicatti on October 15th.

A close game through and through, with Ken's sniper unleashing hell on American leaders/squads while I diced him on the ATG crews early, preserving most of the tanks for the end game.

It came down to the last player turn. An AP round blasted through a pillbox breaking 2 German MMCs inside on a measly 2FP attack. Later, the last few scattered Germans were locked in Melee, having been unable to knock out the tanks in their hexes. The American infantry struggled to be much of a factor the entire game.

Dicey, and not a scenario for the faint of heart. A contrived scenario too; e.g., severe manipulation of the road rate, no armored assault allowed, adjustment of tank rider capacity, German gun crews Fanatic -- mostly in order to fit the victory conditions, rather than fit historical context. Still, it's popular and balanced and neither of us had played it for at least ten years, making for a fun game and a true test of skill! Thanks Ken (who's a great guy!).

I hope everything is alright... but something went wrong, almost two weeks delay means something. Again, I hope everything ends well.

Carl had me pinned down and just about out, when he rolled a 12 in cc allowing a 467+lmg to change his fate. In subsequent fire action Carl was unable to pass a single moral check
ending American Plans for victory.

Seems that he is busy working as crazy.

So, no reason to worry about Enrico. Fortunately

In the Europe/Oceania Round 4

My Canadians were able to defeat Marti' SS in a very quick game of ASL 105 (quick because its a small senario and because we both play fast).

Enjoyable game against a very good opponent.

David Langer's Greeks held on for a win against Jim Fardette's Italians in FT226 "Veni Venezia!". Jim played well pushing his Italians vigorously into the Greek town he was tasked with capturing. But fickle fate was unkind, causing the springs to pop out of his support weapons, and with not quite enough muscle to push the Greeks out of their last pockets, the game went against the Italians. This was a fun scenario against a great opponent : )

In the Central-West Division, Rick Galli's mixed German-Italians defeated Jason Burnette's French in FT239 "Armored Probe at Sidi-Nsir".

The Semoventis quickly knocked out the at-start French armored cars and the 47L gun, but a ROF tear by the French 25LL evened up the vehicle kill count. However, the Italians, assisted by German assault engineers, concentrated their entire force against Hill 714 and were able to clear it and area around it, in the process capturing about a platoon's worth of PoWs. This gave the Axis a solid CVP lead.

This one looked more fun on paper then it turned out to be in play.

John Lehman's Americans conceded in the top of the 6th inning, as it became evident that he probably couldn't claim more than 2 VP buildings. Fun scenario with lots of replayability. And I always enjoy playing John - a gentleman.

With the VASL League guy MIA for over a month, are there any plans for someone to run this league in 2020 if he does not show up in the interim?
