2010 is in the books!


We had a good turnout 33 people from 6 states and it was some great gaming. The tourneys were well attended as most had around 10 players in each. Ron Draker designer of Prussia's Defiant Stand attended for the first time.

We had new winners in several events. Ron was dominant in the tourneys as he won four. The previous record was 2 wins in previous years. Ron has topped the previous record of two by several people including WBC behemouth Bruce Reiff.

Here is the list of winners:

Mike Updike - FAB: The Bulge

Richard Diem - Commands & Colors: Ancients

Mike Sims - War of 1812

Ric Manns - Richard III

Scott Bowling - 1960: Making of the President

Craig Springstube - Euro Iron Man Tourney

Ron Draker - Crusader Rex, Hammer of the Scots, Liberty & Friedrich

It was a great time and I want to thank everyone for making this a terrific weekend. We did have a few hiccups - we had to cancel the Hellenes event due to the unavoidable loss of a GM and the AC not working but, overall it was a great time!
