I'm a union stagehand at the bottom of the San Francisco Bay called Silicon Valley. Too old now for traveling as a roadie, I stay at home and work touring concerts and Broadway musicals. I am blessed with working at a job I love.

I left school at 17 and joined the Royal Marines, I left after 3 months due to ear problems I went on to work for various companies from stacking food to making cement, multi drop delivering, and now in security which I have been doing now for 11 years, I have 3 more years to do before I can retire. I've always been interested in history which led me into war gaming starting of with SPI TSS (Gettysburg), and the massive WW2 game. My computing gaming started of with a spectrum and gradually moved on to desktops and now mainly use laptops, I came across JT's Battleground games and it just grew from there. I joined this club in 2002 and also joined the other clubs as I got more and more games, I now have all the games to date and have moved on to a lot of the Ageod, Matrix and Slitherine games and the Total War series.

PS: All ACW, NAP and the latest Panzer Campaigns (HPS) have been updated to the JTS.

Late to this post. I work on a help desk in IT for what once was a small company, now not so small. I enjoy making small bets on the stock market when I can find me a company to lose my money with. I first played a game called Barbarossa from SPI while a sophomore in college. Spent so much time on it, I nearly flunked out, at least that is my story. I played SL (Squad Leader) but never advanced to ASL, played many of the old SPI Blue and Grey, also SPI The Atlantic Wall and Wach ein Rhine. Have a large collection many of which have never been played. I got into computer games and love finding it so much easier to find opponents, but still always seeking players for face to face games. Love the JTiller games and many others as well.

I am medically retired from public schools where I did IT work. I am currently awaiting a Medical Retirement from the VAARNG. I have 26 years so I could just retire but due to the nature of my illness, I choose medical retirement as it would be more beneficial to my family. I am currently waiting to be assigned to command somewhere in the Confederate forces.

I am a Paramedic for a large County EMS service outside Houston, Texas. But not for long. I am retiring in April to a ranch 100 miles northwest of San Antonio to begin my next life as a "gentleman rancher".

Beautiful country that way. I'm envious. Every time I drive through that part of the state i think about doing the same thing.

Been a member of the club for an epoch it feels. I was interested to see so many men of the cloth listed here as noted by another member. Not me! I'm an ex Catholic, lapsed Chemist, and Practicing Civil servant. Based in the UK, so yes dealing with Brexit at the moment. Working in the science division I am currently looking at what the UK will do for radiopharmaceuticals after a no deal as we import them all from Europe......Originally from Ireland I now live and work in Wales. one of the many rainy bits of UK, full of Norman castles and they love rugby here.

I've been inactive for a few years in the club and only recently responded to a Tournament request. Looking forward to getting active in the club

I am a national process improvement program manager, think Lean, Lean Six Sigma, and Statistical Process Control. I was in the Army for 13 years as a 19K which is a tanker or as the Grunts like to call us DATs. My last three year in the Army I was a Drill Sergeant at Fort Knox, Ky. I think my time as a tanker affected how I play the game as I am very aggressive and always trying to manuver to find that schwerpunkt (doesn't always work against you blue bellies, lol). I live in Colorado, I am married and we have six kids between us with all but two over 18. I started in war games with Risk then Axis and Allies and then transitioned to computer games, the first being Talon soft Bull Run. I got hooked on Civil war there, but I also love Panzer General (1-3) and the later Panzer Corps. I am currently enjoying order of battle which is like panzer general. As for Education, I graduated from Liberty University with BS, MBA, EdS, and ended up EdD (ABD) if you don't know what that is it means.. I did everything but my dissertation defense so I don't get to call myself Dr., lol.
