Message to All Players in This Game

I'll be away on a field trip from Sept. 22nd to Oct. 10.
So the delay for the first turn is unusually long.
However, if I get the orders before Sept. 22, I can manage to moderate the turn and send the reports.

After that date, the turns will be processed as fast as the orders arrive (but not on week ends :), with due dates a week apart.

Remember: in a "club" game, turns are processed only when all the orders are in, or if the game manager (in this case Sun-E) gives me a "Go".

Sorry if I can't communicate in German, it has been a long time since I spoke that language...
