    Last year we had 75 people attend over the weekend. You can look at the pictures here. http://www.flickr.com/photos/cameram...7631922762529/




    Last year I played FAB Sicily, Up Front, Advanced Squad Leader Starter Kit, and a few other small games.




    I'll be playing It Never Snows for the full three days this year. Possibly with five people, each playing a division. My opponent and I are undecided.

        There are 70 people registered so far and I think 21 hotel rooms booked. Looking forward to my three day game of It Never Snows.

          Last count was 92 attendees this year. Best attendance yet. Pretty good for the seventh year of a con that only had about 30 people when it began in 2006.

              I wasn't present at this game but it must have been great. When it finished there was a huge cheer that got the entire con's attention and handshakes all around.

                  That's Rob Bottos. He organizes the convention. They were playing in teams. One of the fun things about the convention is being able to do that. I played It Never Snows. The Axis had two co-commanders and the Allies split into an airborne commander (me) and a XXX Corps commander. I haven't played it at the convention but a few months ago we played Federation Commander. Five team members on each side with two ships each. It was a blast.
