GROTS-Con April 20-21

Post  Screamindaemon on Fri Jan 18, 2013 5:21 pm

Hello all. It's been a few years since I've posted in the Saskatoon Forums.
I moved out to Red Deer a year or so back.

But I've been busy.

I would like to announce that GROTS-Con will be held from April 20-21 at the Red Deer Lodge.

This 2.5 day event will cover events for Fantasy, 40k, and Warmachine/Hordes.
Friday night open gaming with alcohol service. 18+ (only for friday night)
Saturday day will feature a fantasy tournament. Likely four or five rounds at 2500 points. This will be firmed up soon.
Saturday will also feature a warmahordes Hardcore, and Who's the Boss?! event.
Sunday will feature a 40k tournament. Like the Fantasy, it will be four or five rounds, and point total will be determined shortly. Likely around 1850.
Sunday will also feature a full Masters event for warmahordes.

Note that Masters will take place if we have more than 32 warmahordes players, or 100 total attendees. Otherwise it will revert to a standard SR2013.

I am also happy to announce that GROTS-Con is an official alternate to the Warmachine Weekend Invitational event.

There will be a group rate at the Red Deer Lodge. This will also be firmed up later, but initial prices are about $124 for double occupancy. Comes with breakfast.

I'm working on a website, sponsorship, prize support and registration package as we speak.
But in the mean time, please post your interest here.
The more interest I gather, the more prize support I can rake in, and the higher we will rate as Warmachine Weekend alternate (it's based on total attendance).

If you have any comments or questions, post here, or send me a pm.

Thanks guys, I look forward to seeing you this Spring.

-Cam

What's Warmachine? (kidding)

Ok. Plans are finalized, and registration is up.

First, some changes.
The date has been changed to one week prior:
April 20-21, 2013. Hope that's not an issue.

Friday evening is gone, but Saturday and Sunday are full days still.

Please go to http://warhorn.net/grots-con/
to sign up and register.
pre-registration is $5 off your ticket cost.

I look forward to seeing you guys again. It's been a while.

Do you have any contacts or suggestions for clubs in Regina, or otherwise in Saskatchewan?

Cam,

Any composition or silly rules we should know about? It just says 2250.

Ill post it on the 40k forum... Although, we were a little disheartened last time we came and played each other in the first round, and then two of us ayed eachother in the second round. That was truly bizarre given the number of entrants.

I believe people got paired in the first round based on registration.. And since we registered at the same time played each other. I yhink fantasy was the same?

That being said i'll let the 40k'ers know

Hm, the date could be an issue as we have the Fragcon either same weekend or week before and I was seriously looking forward to the Friday night gaming - no jokes. It is what it is I suppose.

Apparently Fragcon is May 3-5, so we're in the clear. No Friday night gaming anywhere?

***cue also sprach zarathustra in loud ominous tones***

Hello again everybody. I am not dead as may have been assumed. I think that I may rise from my tomb to partake in this event. With the new Warriors book my interest in reviving my Warhammer career has been piqued. This may be just the perfect date to make my return to the game. ESPECIALLY if my most favorite Saskatchewan pals are making the trip.

Oh, and in other news, I am currently in the interview process for a position in Saskatoon. I may want to carpool to Red Deer if that's the case.

Bah, sorry for the lapse in communication. I have notifications being sent to the old email address I was using when in Stoon.

So we currently have 6 for Fantasy, and 9 for 40k. I had the unfortunate situation of booking my initial date along side Calgary comiccon, and had to change dates. Due to time restrictions with my volunteer staff, I was roped into the date for Onslaught in Edmonton. So GW attendance is understandably down.

Having said that I would still like to have you all down. But I understand if the interest isn't there. The advantage is better chances for prizes?! Smile

Next year, I will be working with the Alberta GT to pick dates better suited to a larger audience, and get a spot at their invitational.

Here is the details for all the player packs:

Don't think for a second that interest isn't there! Very Happy I would have made a bigger effort if it was a"weekend" thing. Driving 7 hours for three games is almost doable though. Wink

When is the Onslaught in Edmonton?

Onslaught is the 20th, the Saturday.

When you say a weekend thing, would you have interest in a Fantasy singles on one day, and Fantasy doubles on the other? vice versa for 40k? Two days of a single game system?
Is there anyone here that plays both game systems?

Send me your thoughts, requests, gripes, etc.
This year had a bit of a learning curve to it, and there's some things I will change for next year. I want to really expand the GW systems for next year. Let me know what you would want if you were to attend, and I'll make it happen.
I remember the old Confrontations had all sorts of wacky games, gladiatorial fights, pit races, things of that nature.

Lemme know!

I guess my original thoughts were, as I read it, to show up Friday night, play some games and meet new people. Have the tourny Saturday and maybe stick around for more games and drive home Sunday morn.

I completely respect the difficulty in putting together and event. Can't please them all as they say.
