Additions to the John Hill Memorial Games
Historicon 2016 is coming up next month on July 14th- July 17th. In my previous post, I gave some information about Historicon is and listed the events in which John Hill Memorial Games will be played. I know there will be many wargamers who will be playing John’s games and a couple close personal friends of John’s who will be facilitating these games such as Patrick Lebeau and P.J. O’Neil.
There are two additions that have been added since I last posted the list of John Hill Memorial Games. There are two more which will be held on Friday @ 2pm. Be sure to check out the list and make your plans to be there. The number of players is typically 2 to 6.
John HIll: HMGS Legion of Honor
In order to understand more about the contributions John made to the wargaming industry, it is important to first know that he was selected for membership in the HMGS Legion of Honor.
The HMGS Legion of Honor was established by the Chapter Board in 1995 specifically to provide a means by which the recipient of the Society’s lifetime achievement award, the Jack Scruby Award, might be chosen every other year. As such it was thought that members of the Legion should also be chosen for their distinguished service to the hobby if they were to act as electors for such an important process.Thus today the Legion acts as a self-electing honor society that not only decides the Scruby recipient, but also serves as a source of inspiration and achievement to which all miniature hobbyists might aspire. Currently the Legion may select up to two new members per year, and may select a Scruby awardee every other year.
