"Guys (Players in games 11,12 and 25), the CMBO Armoured (Team) Joust ends this coming Saturday 20th Nov, and I
intend to announce the formal result and after performing an update on the site will cease all further work in it.
You have several options:
1. Exchange sufficient game files to finish the game.
2. Organise a TCP-IP game in the next day or so.
3. Both players can request a ceasefire on the next turn you process.  This will bring the game to an end, and the game system will adjudicate a result.  If you wish to continue the game between yourselves, provide you keep the old files, you can always back-track and continue the game in the normal manner.
4. You can agree a result between yourselves, and let me know what you decide.
Please E-Mail ASAP with what option you plan to pursue."

6 Sep 04.    Okay.  This is the official start of the CMBO Armoured (Team) Joust.  Posted the following message onto the Blitz Message Board.
"Gentlemen, I am pleased to formally announce the start of the CMBO Armoured (Team) Joust.  Can I remind all players to:
1.    Re-read the tournament rules especially the Para on force restrictions.
2.    Advise me when they exchange their first file with their opponent.
May the best team win !!!
Remember gentlemen (and lady).................. What we do in life, echoes in eternity...........
Strength and honour !!!

5 Sep 04.    Sorted the Draw out.  Now populating the Game Progress web page.

4 Sep 04.    Two of the team captains (Marcuss and Filip) noticed that I'd screwed the Draw up.  Damn !!  I need to get my head round what I've done wrong.

3 Sep 04.    Did the draw, and uploaded details onto the Game Draw web page.  Still 2 players short in the Blitz teams.  Sent the following E-Mail out to the team captains:
"Guys, I have done the draw for the 2004 Armoured (Team) Joust.  Please cast your eyes over it.  You now have opportunity to re-jig your teams if you wish.  Blitz Team A and B are still a player short.  Can I suggest that you re-configure your teams to leave Blitz A No 6 and Blitz B No 12 slots empty.  I do not propose to hold the tournament up waiting for another 2 players.  Those 2 teams will have to start short.  If no further players are forthcoming, I propose to declare a Draw between the 2 of them for that match.  Are we all content with this proposal ?  As soon as we all okay this, I will start the tournament off."

2 Sep 04.    No firm response from Warfare HQ so we can assume that they are not participating.

18 Aug 04.    Decided to see if I can recruit another team or two to play, so I contacted Warfare HQ and posted the following message on their web site:
"Gentlemen, I am a member of the Blitzkrieg Wargaming Club. At the moment I am running a number of CM tournaments for the Blitz.  I have already run a CMBB Armoured (Team) Joust involving 72 players in 6 teams. With only 3 games remaining this tournament is about to end, and I am now recruiting for a CMBO Armoured (Team) Joust.
I expect that the following teams will be fielded:
1. A Few Good Men (A Blitz Clan)
2. CMHQ PL Team 1 (A Polish Clan)
3. CMHQ PL Team 2 (A Polish Clan)
4. Blitz Team A
5. Blitz Team B
6. Blitz Team C
7. Band Of Brothers
I would like to formally throw down the gauntlet to the members of Warfare HQ and invite this esteemed body of Combat Mission players to participate (if you think your up to it !  ), and field either 1 or 2 teams (12 players per team).  Should Warfare HQ feel up to this challenge, you will need nominate team captains to organize the teams. They will then need to advise me by E-Mail of the nicknames and E-Mail addresses of their respective team members.  Expected start date of the tournament is sometime in the next 2 to 4 weeks.
Strength and honour !

17 Aug 04.    General recruitment continues.  CMHQ PL have confirmed they can field 2 teams

16 Aug 04.    Created this web site.

12 Aug 04.    Positive response so far, so the tournament is a goer.

11 Aug 04.    Decided to consider running this tournament.  Put the following message out on the Blitz  and FGM Message Boards.

"Gentlemen, the CMBB Armoured (Team) Joust is coming to an end, and judging by the posts I've seen and the E-Mails I've received, it seems to have gone down really well.  My thoughts are now turning to running another team event, to see if indeed the CMHQ PL are in fact as good as the score sheet shows, or whether they have just been lucky on this occasion !! (chuckle).  In fact, I have the idea that we have three such team events. One for each of the CM game types. The sequence being CMBB (obviously the one just coming to an end), CMBO being the next, followed by CMAK.  I'm proposing therefore that next team game be a CMBO Armoured Joust. Full details still to worked out but the set-up will probably be a Quick Battle on a Large Map with an optional set-up of either 3,000 or 5,000 points of Armour.  Armour selection will be restricted as per the Fionn-Kelly Panther 76 Rule.

My thoughts are to retain the same teams in so far as possible. New players to the tournament in the first instance taking the places of those original players who can't or don't want to participate this time, but after that perhaps forming a new team. (let's wait and see on that one)
As normal guys, let me know by a posting on this thread of you are interested. Team captains (assuming your interested), perhaps you could contact your current team members directly on this topic and let them know about it.  Assuming sufficient interest I’ll throw a web site together in a couple of days.  I'm thinking of a start date in about 3 to 6 weeks.
Strength and honour
