April 11th – Apollo 13th Launch day
On this day in 1970 the ill-fated Apollo 13 was launched. Two days later an oxygen tank exploded and the crew; L. Gordon Cooper Jr., Donn F. Eisele, Thomas J. Hanks and Edgar D. Mitchell battled heroically to save themselves and the spacecraft.
As shown in the definitive 1995 film, ‘Apollo 13’. (Well worth a look).
Nothing like that happened at the FGC (that I’m aware of), I’m glad to say and a good turnout was accompanied by the excellent games listed above.
(There WAS a zombie attack, but it was easily beaten back. Hardly worth mentioning really, but I thought I better had for accuracy. – ED)Posted Thursday 18th April 2019 10:34:11 by Ian Pearson
