    Snow shoe race,... in the mountains,... covered in snow,... running about 5km (3 miles,.. about).

    Course goes upslope at about 60 degrees for about 100 feet then follows a ridgeline above a ski slope, follows a ski out for a couple of km. Then up the opposite side of the valley, along another ridgeline then back down and to the finish. Plenty of powder to make you work, some good packed trail for speed,.... much fun.

    If I remember to bring a camera I'll post some pics of the event.

    I doubt I'll be any where near the front but its an excellent cardio outting and the temps should be about -10C or so (the teens in the F scale). Still enough to work up a good sweat.

    Actually, I'll have the German maps done up in the next day or so. We just covered the entire mud period (about six weeks) and the ground is just about ready for the summer of '44. The Allies will follow on the weekend but I have a snow shoe race on Saturday so that will delay things. Red Army update will follow that.

    Ditto, but we seem to be in a one turn per month deal.

    Just a quick update during the thaw:

    - East Front - Local German counterattacks dent Russian salient near Breslau.

    - South Front - British squeeze a small advance iin the Austrian foothills while the Red Army takes Budapest from battered defenders.

    - West Front US armour and infantry launch attack in Flanders supported by large parchute force and flanking amphibious troops. German 15th Army ravaged.

    Sound like a lot but actually the amount of ground changing hands is quite small.

    Will post full update when the ground dries.

    Not much for Football, but it was a pretty good game.

    all 3 at once? That's unusual, I hope that means something good for us.

    All three updates are posted. As noted previously the mud will pretty much call a halt to operations so I'll push on with the remainder of 4/44 and into 5/44 until the ground dries and then post another update.

    I'll check the various bunkers for any fresh instructions.

    Happy Super Bowl XLV to those who care.

    Berlin - 20 VP
    Warsaw - 5 VP
    Paris - 5 VP
    Rome - 5 VP
    Ploesti - 5 VP
    Other Europena capital (Brussels, Bucherest, Beograd, Riga, etc.) 1 VP
    German manufacturing centre (18 of them) 1 VP

    Allies - 14 VP (Paris, Rome, Athens, Beograd, Bucherest, Sofia)
    Germany - 41 VP (Berlin, 18 Mfg centres, Vienna, Brussels, The Hague)
