After Action Report (AAR)



I really enjoyed the sessions. It was not so intense that you could not have a normal conversation with the other attendeees. This is something I sometimes find problematic at Grenadier. The setting was super! Just next time, we'll have to bring out the grill. :o) Also read my gaming blog entries:



Hi all, from my side as well many thanks for putting up with me only having little grip on the rules. I had a great time and will hopefully be seeing all of you again - maybe at Alpenfestung 2012? Or VASL - I definitely intend to have a look that way, even if I prefer face-to-face gaming. :-) Cheers, Jan



Thanks all for the interesting weekend and especially to marc for the organization of the tournament. I really liked to be able to play ASL again... it was fun and also sort of challenge in the given time. The scenarios I played were interesting and IMHO well balanced. The nice thing of being up in the Seeblick being undisturbed.



I haven't had a chance to play ASL since July, 2009. What a great revival of my love for ASL! The Seeblick turned out to be a great site for playing ASL, and enjoying the great scenery of the Walensee and the Alps. The weather was unbelievable: We could have breakfast and dinner outside, with the cows grazing just an arm's length from us. I am pleased with my scenario selection: All reported to have had a great time, and the time planning also worked out: To have plenty of opportunity to play ASL, but also plenty of time to finish them without hurry. Very likely, there will be an Alpenfestung II soon. Thanks for making this a great ASL weekend, Michael, Jan and Charlie!
