Attention to Orders

The following Officers are awarded the LEGION OF MERIT MEDAL, by the ACWGC CABINET for their devotion to duty and unprecedented effort in devising, establishing criteria, publicizing, and running the RED BADGE OF COURAGE TOURNMENT.

Gen. Cameron McOmish and Lt. Gen. Francois Chatain


This tournament lasted three years(2012-2015), and consisted of 234 battles, 182 in HPS, 72 in TS/BG, and 20 games which were duplicated in HPS or the Matrix system, with Total Points: 8626 and Total Turns: 6779

The amount of sheer effort in coordinating the matches was monumental and required a very strict devotion to the tournament and the ACWGC.

Thank you for such an honour, I had a hoot putting it together and running it with Francois - a Franco Kiwi effort. It was also well supported and the feedback we got was great. I am not sure I would run such a large one again, but I am keen to run another one < 1 year, I would also encourage others to have a go as well. <SALUTE>

Thank you very much and a big Thanks to Cam for taking me on board.
Thanks also to our 88 different players! Without you we would have gone nowhere. I will remember all the kind words you sent Cam and I by email.

Two very difficult tasks successfully performed - preparing the tournament and then running it. Very well done, fellas.

Cam, Francois,

Thank you so much for your time and energy in putting on this excellent tournament. My men enjoyed the exceptionally fun battles over many months of great gaming. Only wish we could have fought more.

Highest Warm Regards,
