Our friend Kevin Flemming ran the fantasy event this year at 1,000 points and 3 rounds. He also stepped in as ringer with his Dwarf army as we we're 1 player short of 8. The participants names and armies are below. Not pictured are my own Skaven army and Kevin's Dwarfs.
|Brandon Prouty - Orcs & Goblins|
|Steve Gruenwald - Orcs & Goblins|
|Chuck Jiardina - Chaos Dwarfs|
|Aaron Lacey - Lizardmen|
|Unknown - Warriors of Chaos|
|Unknown - Skaven|
Round 1: Aaron Lacey - Lizardmen
Game 2: Brandon Prouty - Orcs & Goblins
Game 3: Steve Gruenwald - Orcs & Goblins
Overall it was enough to see me get Best Overall. Chuck pulled of Best Sports, Aaron Lacey, Best General and Brandon Prouty went home with Best Appearance. A great little 3 round tournament.
Chuck obviuosly was also in attendance and you can read his blog post over on his blog here: Chucks Blogspot
Flat Con and Boardgaming
Overall Flat Con I think represents a lot of promise for me in the future. Chuck and I are discussing attempting to kick up a 20-30 player GT there next year. Midwest Rampage used the venue in the past and with as much room as is available here I see absolutely no reason why we couldn't be successful in such. The Lincoln Waaagh (play off of Land of Lincoln slogan for Illinois) has a nice ring to it doesn't it? You'll have to keep your eyes and ears open for the possibility of that in the future. Closing the blog post I'll say that I personally raised around $200+ for the Children's Miracle Network. Team Cranky together raised over $6,000 for charity in total and in no small part thanks to Andrew Sherman and Dave Witek. As another great note Extra Life in total raised over $2 million dollars this year which is a fantastic record breaking score for them. We fully plan on participating again next year and can't wait.
