First Annual Meeting, Posties Rejects Canuck Chapter To Occur This Weekend

The First Meeting of Postie's Rejects, Canuck Chapter, is set to meet at Curt (Analogue Hobbies) Campbell's place in Regina, Saskatchewan, this weekend. Reject Curt announces the following agenda:


Mike has asked for me to put on a Great War scenario which I'll do for Friday night. In addition, John Bertolini from Saskatoon has offered to set up a Old School Toy Soldier battle for Saturday afternoon (using his super cool personally sculpted, home-cast and painted models) AND Saturday evening Peter will be laying out a 1:2400 WWII naval action set in the Med. All this gaming mayhem will be occurring at Curt & Sarah's. (God bless her long-suffering soul!) Friday's Great War game will start at 7:30pm. John's game on Saturday around 2pm and Peter's around 7:30 that night. Look forward to seeing you around the table! Best,Curt


Also on the agenda is the ceremonial presentation of Curt's ronin from the Painting Challenge and a presentation to Pete Douglas for a fabulous prize he won recently on this very blog.


The Canadian Chapter was founded last year when Reject Curt visited Reject HQ in England just under a year ago.

Further cementing the tradition, last summer was also when Reject Fran and I did a shirt exchange, in which Fran got some old Canadian Army rag and meself came out the better, I thought. I shall be wearing my fabulous Reject shirt this weekend.


Now, we being but simple colonials, who look to Mother England for direction, inspiration, and inebriation, have the following questions for Fran, Ray, Big Lee and all.


1) Are there any rituals that we need to observe, such as not rolling "1"s, taking the piss out of each other, and having a fry up?

2) Do we address each other as "Gits" or are there other appropriate salutations such as "Right Honourable Reject", "Sod Off", etc?


3) Any other advice?

  1. Michael - it is my understanding that ceremonies should commence with the ritual singing of the Rejects Hymn (to the tune of "Knees up Mother Brown"):
    Who ate all the pies?
    Who ate all the pies?
    You fat bas***d, you fat bas***d
    You ate all the pies

    Wishing the Canadian Chapter a most excellent inaugural gathering Dudes!

    1. LOL!!!
      We sing that before every game to Fran and Lee who have to stand in the corner and eat a jam doughnut without licking their lips!

    2. Hmmm, I seem to be hearign different versions from all 3 of you. Fran said it's sung to you and Lee; Lee said it's sung to you and Fran. I guess we'll have to ask Postie for the true version :p

  2. Thank you Tamsin, very helpful. Coincidentally,that happens to be the Canadian Army Chaplain's Corp Regimental March Past, with the second verse being "Who Drank All The Wine?"

    Posties' Rejects Canuck chapter eh? I'm not sure I'd want to join a club that admitted me as a member. FYI, to make sure it has the proper Canuck feel we should have Sylvain present so that we can be insulted in both official languages.

    Cheers

  4. 1. Lots of taking the piss and name calling
    2. Laughing out loud, when your opponent throws crap dice.
    3. Plenty of Tea and Corned Beef and pickle sandwiches.
    4. Don't forget to take the piss.
    We shall be there in spirit............ preferably Jack Daniels!

    1. 5. Take lot of embarrassing pics of other members present and post them on your blog(s) as quickly as possible

      as for being there in spirit, perhaps Canadian Club would be more appropriate than the JD Ray suggests :)

    2. The local Regina tradition is a bottle of Wargaming Wine (or Whargaming Whine) - labelled as such with black sharpie marker on green or blue masking tape. Curt has commented that both Sylvain and I use the same font - which I describe as Academic Scale 28pt.

      Cheers
      PD

    3. Totally agree with Ray's points but seeing as he never brings anything not even a wine gum, you should nominate someone as Ray (tight git) and you will need a roll of fame and a roll of sham for people like Ray! Good luck boys!

  5. Is the quick march, "He's been at the goat again." ?
