061222 Debriefing

NOTE: No mission will be run next week! Happy new Year!!
It is anticipated an "offspring" night  for the young borgs will be held sometime in January!!
Keep an eye on the blog!

Attendees: Fred, Parts, Nadz, Raw, Wood, Canon & Tone.
Good turn out for the last Edge event of the year.

Kicked off with a BBQ down stairs, plenty of steak, burgers & salad to feed the hungry masses.  After a few minor technical issues were sorted, the serious part of the evening proceeded. It didn’t take long for the temperature to rise to over 30c in the Enclave with seven eager bodies, heat generating PC’s and monitors humming on the warm, balmy night. With fans running, the situation was brought into check and the evening was made fairly comfortable.

Unfortunately after painstakingly entering in the results into the Jasjam, as Edge spare PC was in use by Canon, they failed to save when exiting Mobile Word as expected. With some exciting and close tussles being played out in the middle of the field and a few surprises, Fred generally dominated proceedings and eventually held onto the coveted V8 Supercars Perpetual Trophy. Memerable moment: a close battle was being had at the front of the pack in a latter race when Raw came from fourth to power into victory on the last bend more than surprising the leaders. It was also Nadz first foray onto the track which caused some interesting and exciting moments as he got lapped by the leaders, to the call of encouragement "Go Nadz, go!"

Fred greedily claimed the support trophie before we headed to the dessert table, where Raw had provided us with a bountiful supply of donoughts and a variety of chocolate mudcakes to raise the sugar levels before heading into a shoot ’em up.

Berecourt – Deathmatch
Carentan – team deathmatch, house
Normandy – deathmatch
Normandy – deathmatch with trench guns only.

A successful and all round enjoyable night with plenty happening around the traps.
Attendees should add their comments on any special moments I may have overlooked!

The night wound down around 0200 hrs, with discussions on perhaps making Edge missions fortnightly with a BBQ every 2nd mission (4 weeks), or missions every 3rd week with a barbie, with the aim of bosting attendance on gaming nights. Raw suggested a "cheesecake competition bakeoff", where a separate agent brings one up each mision and we vote on them!

See you again next year!!!

  1. Agents will be happy to know a much awaited infrastructure upgrade is underway. The carpet tiles are finally having sections around the edges inserted so as they don’t slide around under foot or during over exhuberant pedal usage. Tone ran out of time the other evening to complete the task, but is well over 3/4 done and hopefully it will be completed tonight – or at least, before our next mission, scheduled for January 5, in the new year.
    Agents with offspring should pencil in Friday January 12 as micro-borg night – (subject to change and open to comment/suggestion)  – so dust off your spare hardware and make sure your borgs get plenty of sleep in the lead up to this much anticipated almost annual event. We may even be able to network a few PS2’s together (Woodie, Tone and any other owners?) for alternative gaming action for the youngens. Stay tuned ….
