Good.  Bring Chronopia so Les and I can square off again.  Tell Caleb I'll be there too.
May the Dark Lords of Lead-Free Pewter smile kindly upon you.

UPDATE:

The president of Veezcon Industries just stopped by to drop off a few presents and a veritable buttload of terrain - really nice stuff, too.  He also dropped off "product."

Seriously, though, it was great to meet Ian, in person.  Though he cannot make the event, he wanted me to wish you all a good time and good games.  

Rocking....

I think I will try and come down Friday evening to see folks.  I will definitely be there most of Saturday for some serious dice-slinging.

Dave, what kind of terrain? Post some pics if you get a chance please.
Always look out for number one, but don't step in number two.

Don't ever say anything but a 20 before rolling the dice.

I wanted to thank everyone for a awesome time.
to all I played against :
Dillon: A newbie by the end of the night was given harden vets of chronopia a run for their money.
Archer: for great Battletech game that either one of us wasnt going to lose (game ended in a draw)
doger: Inferinal contraption
Steve: Ahhhhhh warzone.
Bill: to setting up a game where Thom, Dave, Steve and Me can play on one team.....god damn.
GO TEAM "GET THE JOB DONE"....aka team evil.

Lastly to the McGees. For time and trouble for setting all this up and being wonderful host to a bunch gamers running around their house for a few days. You guys are the best.

to everyone else I'm  sorry not to be able to get a game in....(only so many hours in a day  :P).
Next time I'll make it a point get game in with you (THOM!!!)

greatest bunch of gamers under one roof

Two more turns... and there would have been a dead quad. :)  Good game man...

Amen to that!

Duly noted Masher, playing on the same side was a first (and a damn sexy thing.)

The event was really enjoyable, gratifying and by far the largest turn out to date.  A run down of attendees included:

Dave M
Josh S
William M
Steve G
Steve
Craig M
Dillon M
Andreas E
Jeff D
John T.
Leslie
Mark A.
Felicia A.
Marc
Lance K.
Hans S.
Kevin L.
William R.
Sean

in spirit:
Topkick, VBeez, LuckyOne, Cold Thunder

It was a great event!!  

Let me offer a special thanks to Josh for getting the ball rolling three years ago, Dave and Maryanne for hosting it so well and coordinating so many aspects of the day and making everyone feel so welcome (it was absolutely enjoyable and I am so honored to call you friends), to Veez and Tim who provided great terrain in absentia (there will be one next year), to my first Crusader Andreas for traveling the farthest (I will give you a better game next time, with my own die- that story later), to Craig for traveling the second farthest and for bringing an awesome new player with him (welcome Dillon- remember the first fix is free), to the Steves (collectively) who make me guffaw like a little school girl till my sides hurt (Maplewood here I come), to John and Leslie (and Caleb) for bringing their A games (and brushes) and for their sound wisdom and advice, to Mark and Felicia (who is was so nice to see after so many years),  to Jeff (who provided me with an absolutely exciting game of UWZ that nearly wiped out the scars of a much older battle that made me swear never to play him again), to my friend William for running his chariot game for the attendees and showing us how to play WoW minis (face it, anything that puts the Steves, Dave and I on the same side is AWESOME) (next time you must bring the wife),  to Lance bringing his Imperial Juggernaut (I hope we have pics), to Kevin, Sean, William (I owe you a match on the 16th) and Hans it was great to see and fun to catch up with.

Thom, you forgot the stray cat that wandered in, wanting cheesy poofs and a quick game!
If sing, sang, and sung, sink, sank, and sunk, and drink, drank, and drunk, how is it that it isn't bring, brang, and brung, think, thank and thunk, and ding, dang, and dung?

Don't even get me started about bad, badder and baddest.  Run, ran AND run...again?  C'mon!
