Title:  Tanks, Tanks, and More Tanks! The Battle of Prokhorovka, July 1943

Rules:Memoir 44‘Overlord'(Epic)

Game Masters: Jim Pitts and Jay Stribling

Notes:  This will be quite a large game.   The tank battle of Prokhorovka was a clash between two immense armored forces. As the SS Panzer Corps started its advance, the Soviet artillery erupted and soon after the 5th Guards Tank Army under Gen. Pavel Rotmistrov accelerated toward the German advance. Rotmistrov's plan was to close quickly to negate the advantage held by the longer range German tanks.The fighting became a swirling melee and soon the battlefield was littered with the shattered remains of smoking armor. Losses on both sides were enormous. Combined, over 700 tanks were lost and because the battlefield remained in Soviet control the Germans could not recover and repair their losses.

Notes on the Location:We are finally getting to return to my church for a club game.But there are a couple of considerations for attending—If you are fully vaccinated, you are encouraged to wear a mask; if you are not fully vaccinated, you must wear a mask.These are not my directions, but those of the Session of the church.As an officer of the church, I must insist that these considerations be followed, especially the latter one.Right now with the proliferation of the Delta variant among the unvaccinated, we must all be especially careful.

There will also be some members of the church there preparing the Meals on Wheels in the Fellowship Hall.If the front door is locked, please call my cell phone (769-226-5754) and someone will come let you in.If the door is unlocked, please walk all the way down the hall, take a quick right then left, and continue down to the library at the end of that hall.
