Even though I decided to organise a Gunboat competition, if it was not for those below, Admiral could not have taken-off. You will see below the names of those that I do want to thank. In addition to their names, you will see a flag beside them and that states their nationality. So you know why they deserve my thanks, I have written a brief explanation plus the Diplomacy site that I think you can normally find them playing.

Thank You!

Andy Scott
Scottish In Admiral I, I was unaware of the number of players wishing to play and therefore the number of games to GM. Andy offered to GM and not play in the competition. We were able to bounce ideas of each other and one lead to him naming the games and giving a brief description of the Royal Navy Ships we used.
He has continued to GM in all Admiral Gunboat Competition.

Mike Dean
Scottish Prior to thinking of the name of the competition, I E-mailed Mike (Webmaster for Psychopath) to see if he was happy for me to use the site to host the Competition. He did agree and sadly if it was not for the site to close, Admiral would still be hosted on that site. PsychoCon
