A very handsome award indeed!

Now we just need to have Ed Youngstrom get the young man's e-mail address so that he can be informed of his honors.

An impressive "bauble" for one so young! May this be the first of many.

Does anyone know if he was already interested in the 18th century? Or was this just a first exposure?

If he's interested enough, there's always room for more members of "Emperor vs Elector" (well okay, we can only add 48 more members . . . but that's a lot).

As usual, anyone interested can contact me at . . . bluebear@uniserve.com

By all accounts, the young gentleman earned it. Huzzah!

It was Brad's second time to play wargames at all! Apparently he attended MCon last year and has not played since!

I'll post the award at LSHM for him to find. It looks wonderful!

Young Brad also played in the DBA tournamnet in which he took Second Place! And that was his first rime playing DBA!

So before you fine tri-corn'ed gen-teel-men go get all huffy and puffy about gaining another SYW club member, consider that he also took great interest in 15mm Ancients.

I can hardly wait to see what he does when he's introduced to Napoleonics.
