The day dawned with a heavy mist over the lake which kept the temperature down.
We were really lucky with the weather since July and August are traditionally our wettest months in this part of the world.
The game for the morning was set in 21st century Afghanistan, with a British infantry platoon attempting to clear the village of Taliban insurgents. Each of us commanded a squad of four figures. We had a single support vehicle and could call on air support.
The insurgents popped up randomly in various buildings supported by Toyota utility wagons in the streets.
In our three or four hours of play we managed to clear half the village, although we took a reasonable number of hits doing so, but the need to travel back home called an end the the game. We packed up, had some lunch and suddenly our wonderful week was ended.
