I tried to register and Firefox stopped me with a warning that there is a security issue with the AH events site.  I tried to log in again through the the way I usually do and got the same message.

I used the link under Brooke's name and it took me to the events page without that message. I had to reset my password though

All,

Revision 7 of the Write-up has been published and ready for your review. The document now contains the;

  • Target Packages Per Phase

This is posted for both sides in preparation for the battle on July 31st. Please step up your efforts to recruit and fill the registered seats for the purposes of planning and obtaining the victory for your side after the battle.

We look forward to seeing you on game day.

We will need all Squad GLs to be in the tower early to build out your squad and get everyone in uniform before take off.

We appreciate everyone's support of Aces High Special Event, especially this one.

I am not 100% sure, but I will take a swing, that "NONE" of us will fly World War II aircraft in combat ever. That is a time long since gone. This is the best opportunity that we have to relive our passion. So,  get out there and recruit for this event and let's get the furball tumbling and the dogfights going!

Please take a moment to read the write-up and register for this event.

Looks like a fun setup.

The scoring appears to lean toward ground targets and axis don't have much of a bomber force and can't strafe so my bet is allied win!

Hope to see y'all there if I can make it.
