Waterloo at 1:1 Scale.  Local wargamer Steve St Clair was recently the subject of a Washington Post magazine article on his painting project wherein he painted Waterloo at 1:1 scale.  Recently Voice of Amer4ica has done a story on him as well.  Here are the links to see that.

September 19 - Battle of Third Winchester 150th Anniversary Ranger Station Programs (12:00 – 4:00pm) 
National Park Service Rangers will provide interpretation at key points (such as Middle Field, StephensonÕs Depot, Star Fort and others) on the battlefield. Follow the path of the battle chronologically through this series of timed programs to learn more about each pivotal point, from the beginning of the battle at the east end of Berryville Canyon to its climax "whirling through Winchester." Visitors can attend all of the scheduled presentations or attend select programs of their choosing. Meet at the east end of Berryville Canyon, on the north side of Berryville Pike (VA Route7), opposite the Frederick Winchester Service Authority plant. 

Death.   Bob Coggins who was very active in the hobby died on 21 July.  He along with Craig Taylor designed the rule set NapoleonÕs Battles.  Additionally he was very active in the convention side of the hobby.   He helped to found HMGS and was co director of Historicon from 1987 to 1994.  While director, he instituted the Scruby Awards. A great guy.
