SATURDAY May 20, 2023

Location:  Jim Pitts’ house (679 Tifton Drive, in south Jackson)    MAP

Scale:  28mm

Title:  The Village

Setting:  Somewhere in British East Africa in the 1890s.  An armed British punitive expedition is dispatched to capture, but not destroy a village of native African tribesmen who have too long disputed the peace of the district.

Rules:  The Sword in Africa/The Sword and the Flame

Notes: For those using IH-55 to access south Jackson, please take the Savannah Street exit as the Daniel Lake exit will be congested due to the Trail of Honor at the Harley Davidson store at the exit.  Once Savannah Street crosses Terry Road the name changes to McCluer Road.  Be mindful that the west bound lane of McCluer Road at the Lakewood South Cemetery is in bad repair due to it sluffing into the roadside drainage ditch.  Road is passable, just take care.

 All provisions will be provided so please do not bring any chips, cookies, or other snacks (per orders of the “Chief of Staff” [my wife]).

 You may park of the street in front of my house or in front of the vacant lot just before my house.
