Salute 2015

As I may have mentioned before, we are doing a participation game at Salute this year called ZZapp the Zepp. It's (loosely) based on Lt Culley's shooting down of Zeppelin L53 over the North Sea in August 1918, the last Zeppelin to be shot down by British fighters in the War. Players will have to fly their Sopwith Camels (the old Airfix kit which is the correct Camel 2F1 - at last I've found a use for it!) down the board to reach the Zeppelin and try to shoot her down before she gets too high for them. But the Zeppelin is not alone, there are Albatros W4 and Hansa-Brandenberg seaplanes lurking to try to shoot the Camels down!

As usual with our participation games it will be fast and furious (no pun intended - the planes come from HMS Furious!) and hopefully great fun. If you are at Salute on Saturday do stop by and say hello or even have a go! You can't miss our table, a 5 foot long Zeppelin standing half a metre above the table will grab your attention!

I'll try to post some photos after Salute.
