Polar Bear V

June 25 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm GMT


Operation dervish


*January 25.-26. January 2020*

Burning Bridges Wargaming Club proudly presents the fifth Polar Bear
Tournament in Reykjavík, Iceland.

The tournament is named in honor of the 49th West Riding Infantry Division that was sent to Iceland as an occupation force in 1940 and their divisional insignia the Polar Bear was adopted.

The Tournament will be a *81 *point Mid War Tournament. The Tournament will be themed on the Eastern Front. *Operation Dervish* was the first Arctic Convoy with supplies to the Soviet Union in World War II and it assembled in Iceland in the summer of 1941. Players are encouraged to base their armies on the books, Red Banner, Ghost Panzers, Enemy at the Gates,  and Iron Cross. If you do not have a Eastern Front force, then other MW forces are welcome. 81 points is the anniversary of the beginning of World War II but 2020 also celebrates 75 years from its end. *60% of 81 is 49 points.*

On Saturday night after the normal proceedings, the will be the legendary
Total War battle played in a North Africa MW setting according to the
Einherjar handicap rules. This is an open event and set up to bring players
closer together without the seriousness of winning a Tournament. It will
not affect your standing in the Tournament and the persons who have the
most fun win, regardless of victory conditions.

Admission is 80 Euros and includes snacks and dinner on Saturday during the battle as well as a T-shirt.

For anyone wanting to arrive a day earlier on Friday we will be happy to do
some sightseeing with you around the city and show you for example the old WW2 bunker system above Reykjavik Airport.
