We are all set for the show at the "Explosion" Museum of Naval Firepower in Gosport tomorrow and Sunday, June 22/23rd. We have 13 games running over the two days with demos of the new "Sails of Glory" game from Ares and the new version of Victory At Sea from Mongoose (as well as their new range of models). Other games include

* The Cod War in 1/600
* WW2 Coastal forces
* "Cockleshell Heroes"
* 1/2400 'Hail Agrippa' ancient naval participation
* 1/600 ACW
* 20mm Sudan (including riverboats)
* Battle of Camperdown in 1/1200 (presented by the Inshore Squadron)
* Battle of the Yellow Sea in 1/3000
* Keshian Civil War (Man o War run by Jeff Crane)
* Shipwreck Modern naval in 1/6000

We will also have "The Anchorage" in attendance – Stuart Barnes Watson's new 1/1200 model dealership. So quite a diverse coverage of periods and scales.

For NWS members a reminder that Stuart Barnes Watson has called an AGM which will be held at 6pm at the museum just before the barbeque 

Hope to see you there!
