STAVKA plan for operations in the next 180 days...

On a dark, dismal afternoon the STAVKA of the Moscow Front met to plan for the immediate future,
Marshall Zhukov and staff
concerning operations. As of this date all times, dates, operations and codenames are ALL SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE.  Please refer to this and subsequent dispatches for changes.  Oh yes, there will be changes.

The intent is to let everyone know what is coming, and to be able to plan accordingly.  This is by no means a complete list. Again... there will be changes.

TENTATIVE DATE:  7 December, 2013

The STAVKA realizes that with the holidays coming up, much, if not most of our time will be with family.  We plan a light meeting day, no games planned as yet, but hope to work as a terrain making day.

TENTATIVE DATE: 18 January, 2014

Again, time is a precious commodity and we want to keep club demands as light as possible this month.  The Komissar will bring his Panzerblitz game, and introduce victims to the fine art of Avalon Hill wargaming.

TENTATIVE DATE:  15 February thru 22 February, 2014

Early spring is going to be busy with planning and executing an open FoW tournament, period and points TBD.  15 Feb. is our scheduled meeting date, and can be used to finalize tournament plans if necessary. the 22nd is the hard date of the tournament, additional details will be released as they are finalized.

TENTATIVE DATE:  28 February to 22 March, 2014

The Front will be conducting FoW infantry operations using the Infantry Aces format.  More details as they become available.

TENTATIVE DATE:  5 April, 2014

The Komissar is planning a midwar FoW event covering the battle of Prokohrovka using historical maps, a simplified OB, and FoW midwar rules.  The intent is to have all figures/models provided, but if you are interested and have MW German and Soviet armies, please contact the Komissar to see how you can contribute.  More details will be coming by early March.

TENTATIVE DATE: late May, 2014

The Font is making plans to possibly attend the HMGS convention in Olympia this spring, so the May calendar will be cleared. This is highly subject to change so stay vigilant!


The Front will plan/host a D-Day campaign/tournament in commemoration of the greatest amphibious landing in history.  Details will be released sometime soon.

There it is, a planning framework for the next few months or so.  We hope this helps, and hope everyone is able to assist and participate.  We realize that there is much deadspace in the schedule, please feel free to contact us via email ( moscowfront@yahoo.com ) to make suggestions and perhaps fill the gaps.  This club is what we make of it, and we all work for its success.

the Komissar
