October Gaming Draws Good Attendance
The Indy Squadron gathered for three Dawn Patrol games at the Meister's home on the east side of Indy last weekend. Michael Morgan and Kevin Richeson returned to the gaming table in addition to the Skinners and the host family. As always, Mrs. Meister kept the crowd well fed with an award winning meal and a buffet of desserts all day long.
The first game was set in May 1917 and featured a pair of British RE 8's (Michael and Bob) escorted by a single Nieuport 17 (Ethan). The English flight was met by a pair of German ground attack machines (Stephen and A. J.) under the watchful eye of an Albatros DIII (Stephen Dale).

Hohndorf, Ulrich Killed in Action ~ New Player Joins Indy
The Indy Squadron is growing. We all expect a fluctuation in attendance that stems from changes in jobs, life and general interest. The last few years have featured consistent but minimal gaming at Indy, but the squadron seems to be gaining a bit of natural momentum right now.
The Meisters (Bob and A. J.) are 2-for-2 on attendance in so far, establishing early eligibility in the 2016 championship race. Bob is coming off a spectacular performance last weekend (February 6) at Saltire Games in Indianapolis, where he scored multiple kills and survived every mission.

Expanded 2016 Indy Schedule Released
We have decided that more is probably better. For the first time in several years, the Indy Squadron will increase the number of gaming dates scheduled rather than decrease them. The tentative 2016 Indy calendar includes eight dates, six of which are official Indy events with two additional gaming conventions that the squadron supports.
The upcoming season begins with the revival of a long-held Indy tradition - New Year's Day gaming. The calendar is full throughout the spring with additional games in February and numerous special events in April.
Local gaming in June and Gen Con in August fill out the summer, with the usual September games followed by Armistice Day in early November. The full schedule is on the right sidebar menu of IndySquadron.com.

Victory Medal Design Unveiled
The 2015-2017 Victory Medals have been purchased and delivered in time for this weekend's Armistice Day Fits Tournament. The new design is a throwback, identical to the popular medals awarded in the 2001-2006 era.
The Victory Medal is the highest honor the Indy Squadron can bestow, and can only be earned by winning the championship event held every November. For 27 years the character of the award has remained unchanged; an engraved gold medallion hung below a pure red ribbon.
