Conscripts, Friends, and Fellow Travelers:
I am pleased to report the Committee has resolved that:
1. The date for our in-person Human Wave 2021 will be July 9-11, 2020.
2. Location is Comrade John G’s backyard (Vienna Virginia, near Dunn Loring metro).
3. Attendance is limited to 16 players each day. We will offer a main, 5 game tournament Fri-Sun, mini tournaments Sat & Sun and Starter Kit play (depending on attendance). This year’s theme is “Axis & Allies”, or “Green for Good or Bad”. We are going back to the East Front, where scenarios will focus on Russia vs Axis Minor allies (Finns, Hungarians, Romanians, Italians) and Russian ‘partner nations’ (Allied Minors and proxies). Scenario list is being developed as we speak!
4. David Garvin will be our Tournament Director (assuming he’s allowed to make the trip).
5. Cost is projected to be around $30/person, mainly to pay for the tent rentals and awards. (We are working to see if we can lower our costs, and thereby the price, stay tuned).
Sign-up information will be forthcoming at the Human Wave website .
Send out the word! Slava!!!
