Excellent
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!

Very good, very good.  It is all coming together quite nicely.

Only 6 months left for all the procrastinaters that need lots of time to plan.

OK, great. I will do my best to have a 100% painted army and a new board for the event.

I will also tentatively commit to this date.  I've been wanting to go to one of these events but something always seems to get in the way.  I have it on my calendar and depending on the state of my finances, I will be there.  Dave, could you send me your address and a contact phone number privately so I can plan for a motel close by where you live.  Also, make some suggestions of reasonably priced places.  I know there is crash space offered but as I get older, I like certain creature comforts too much to give them up.  Plus I might talk my new wife into coming.  She isn't a gamer but she has never been to the Philadelphia area.  She has been after me to plan a vacation to DC and I thought, hmmm, maybe I can work it so that we spend a few days in a DC then head up to Philadephia and spend some time there also.

Another questions, what point size are the armies for various games both Warzone and Chronopia.  I would love to get into a very large game that lasted all weekend.

Dave will give you the hotel info, there are several within 1-2 miles of his house. I used the red roof inn last year. As far as army sizes we generally play 750 or 1000 pt games to get in more games against different people. We will also be having a chariot race as long as Bill attends. ;D

My address and phone number are easily found online or in a PA (philadelphia area) phone book.

Therefore:
David McGee
701 Delaware Ave
Norwood, PA 19074
484-494-7348

The best place to locate a hotel/motel closest to me is in the boroughs of Essington and Lester just west of Philadelphia Int'l Airport.  Any hotel located here is less than 3 minutes from my location, and there are at least two decent diners, and one Ruby Tuesday's within a mile or two.  Also, within blocks of my house are several reasonably priced local restaurants (The Trieste (Italian), Da Chen (Asian) and the Erin Pub (seafood)).  There are fast food joints, Dunkin' Donuts and plenty of other stores (Wawa; our regional 7-11, but much, much better).

If there are any questions, please, ask.  I have little experience with the hotels, though Phil (Dragon62) and others would be able to shed more light as to their quality and convenience.

Right at the end of 420 where it meets Rt 291 (Industrial Hwy), there is the following (according to Google)

Red Roof
Motel 6
Wyndamn Gardern
Comfort Inn

Red Roof looks like it is really further down the road from the Airport but its still in the 7-10 minute commute range (due to traffic)

Be wary of the directions Google Maps gives you- Delaware Ave is a One Way (or so I nearly got ticketed for :) ) on NYE.  Look at teh map and go Mohawk to Seneca to Delaware.

The red roof is right there 1/4 mile at most. Thats where I stayed last year.

Mr McGee as we get closer to the event if there is any help you need in setup i'am willing to lend a hand.

Phil, you're always welcomed here, bud.  As for help, what we should need from you is your massive amounts of lead and terrain.  Other than that, your presence is advised, too.
