  1. Looks like a fun one. I think that I am short of two of the boards to give it a go. I'll see if I can substitute with what I have.

  2. UGH...major error on my VC - I indicated that Gen. Rose was to exit Board 62 on the west should be the east edge, which most probably realized once they saw the Hex call out...but still bad editing on my part. My apologies to everyone.
