This is kinda off topic, but for those of you who frequent the
Newsgroup rec.games.miniatures.historical, has anybody noticed the
almost total absence of many of the most vocal and opinionated folks
from our hobby? Here I'm talking about Bob Jones of Piquet fame, his
arch nemesis Matt Delamater of Legacy of Glory, Pat Condray, Well
Known Poison Pen. With them also went some of the most stirring
debate around, ranging from Napoleonic artillery accuracy to whether
or not HMGS East is in reality a communist plot for world domination.
It has been rather quiet. Perhaps the 200 Ft General seminar gave them all
food for thought.....where they got to discuss (& listen) with their peers
about their fundamental approaches to their game/rule designs. Speaking of
that, whatever became of the offer to provide a transcript of that? Perhaps
Mitch Osborne who organized the event can answer that Bill. Are you still in
contact with Mitch?
In any event I do miss those debates, they were mostly enlightening if not
