Sorry for the delay in responding. I live in Silver Spring, MD just outside WDC.
As far as Dropbox goes, I'm a 70 year old Luddite with only a little experience using Dropbox but I'm willing to try it. If I have too much trouble with it, I'll simply email Vassal files.
Back to you for the first move...

1 1/16/2020 10:39:00 AM Start France Message Hello Michael,
Nice to meet you. As a littel background, I am an experienced CDG/wargamer but have played half a game of Wilderness war. Expect potential bad plays and/or rules errors on my part. I always try to keep them at a minimum of course but they will get through.
Also, despite this being a tournament, I play for fun so take backs before dice are rolled are always an option in my games.
Here is to a good game!
Vive la France!
I live in Montreal btw....playing on home turf!
