what do we do for an encore? …

The Mighty Eighth U.S. Army Air Force will again take to the skies over German-occupied Europe for three more historical-based missions, to battle the Luftwaffe and attack key wartime industries in 1943. And if last year was any indication, the Germans are in for a tough time because the raids continue to draw large crowds. Our squadron flew in record numbers again last year under the direction of the dean of WBC GMs, David Terry, with 23 tours and counting.

The B-17 event (on WBC Thursday at 0900) follows the chronological war diary of the USAAF Mighty Eighth Air Force. After 23 years of tournament play, we are now conducting historically-based missions from late 1943 after the disastrous second attack on Schweinfurt. The tournament flies three missions, and all players are encouraged to play all three along with their fellow squadron members. The After Action meeting on Friday night at 2200 hours involves presentation of medals, acknowledging some of the highlights (and lowlights) of the previous day’s battles. We also feature an optional prize table, in which participants donate a B-17/WW2-related item (book, video, wargame, models, etc.) to the prize table. At the After Action meeting, the prize table is picked in order from last place to first, ensuring that everyone goes away with some memento from the tournament. But mostly, as our recent rising attendance figures indicate, the most important thing that players take home is memories and a desire to come back next year. We encourage new players to find a copy of the game online, but show up regardless and we will see if we can cover you from our library of stocked B-17 games.


We present medals for great heroic achievements, as well as for notable disastrous results. During the after action meeting, we run an optional prize table whereby each player donates a B17/WW2-related item (book, video, wargame, models, etc.) to the prize table.
