No “Crisis” this Weekend due to the COVID pandemic

As there is no “Crisis 2020” today I will post a collection of pictures of past Crisis conventions as a little diversion from the daily bad news. I sincerely hope that there will be a “Crisis2021” but as of today I doubt that this is going to happen. I really miss all the friends I usually meet with at “Crisis” in Antwerp. I haven’t seen you for a year now and I fear it will take a lot longer until we see us again. I suppose “Salute21” in London will also be cancelled so it looks like another year until meeting might be possible again.

So to cheer us all up here are the promised pictures:

Crisis 2019:

And Crisis 2018:

If this is not enough, just get yourself a beer or your favorite beverage and enjoy the complete picture reports of :

Crisis219, Crisis2018, Crisis2017/1, Crisis2017/2, Crisis 2016, Crisis2015

So this should keep you busy during the Crisis 2020 weekend and hopefully we can enjoy each others company and an occasional beer together next year. Keep safe and healthy !!!

First is an absolutely stunning game showing Romans against Barbarians . What I think is really outstanding is the boats on the river!
