1 - Do you want to have some fun? How about an ACWGC sanctioned single elimination tournament using HPS Gettysburg! But there are so many options and they make such a big difference, you say – well don’t worry about that because you can join:

a - the Round Top Division of the tournament played in turns where all options are on except MDF and Optional Melee Resolution; or

b - the Cemetery Ridge Division played in optional turns with all options on except MDF to include Optional Melee Resolution is turned on; or

c - the Culp’s Hill Division played in phases with all options on to include MDF and Optional Melee Resolution; or

d - maybe you want to sign up for two of them or all of them.

2 - You’re worried about embarrassing yourself? Let me let you in on a secret. There is only going to be one winner in each of those divisions so everybody is going to lose except for one person so you’ve got a lot of company if you lose.

3 - Pull for yourself, pull for your army, pull for your side, pull for your friends, but sign up today by answering this post or sending an e-mail to Lt Gen Ned Simms at You’ve got until midnight CST 23 January 2010 to sign up. In order to sign up, you have to specify rank, name, USA or CSA army, and which divisions of the tournament that you are signing up for. Have your whole corps to sign up and see how far you can get.

4 - The website for the High Tide Tournament is at . Brackets will be determined after everyone signs up.

Never interrupt the enemy when he is doing something wrong.

Gen Simms,

You have an excellent idea for a tournament. I would be honored to participate. Please sign me up for all three divisions. I hope you can make some arrangements to avoid pitting the same players against each other in the first round of the tournament. Since I will be the Union number 1 seed, I would hate to have to knock out Col Hebert in the first round of all three brackets.

I'm not going in- too busy, but wanted to post a reminded that there is a bug with phased play (e.g. optional melee resolution) and night fatigue. When Opt Mel Res is chosen no night fatigue will accrue to moving units -- this could have an impact upon any multi-day actions.

Lt Colonel Trauth,

Sir, thank you for making mention of the bug with night movement fatigue!

I'm engaged in a battle with Major General Ringbloom at Antietam and I'd noticed that I was not incurring any fatigue while rearranging my battlelines under the cover of darkness. I wondered what was going on... now I know!

Lt General Simms... I make myself available for all three Divisions of the Tourney. If you are long a man or two in any of the Divisions... you can drop me to make things even! [:p]

As for for Colonel Doug Shaw knocking out Colonel Hebert in all three brackets... highly unlikely! [;)]
