Birthday Bash Gamesday Weekend in Moose Jaw! Feb 10-11-12 (updated!)

Post  squalie on Sun Dec 18, 2016 10:50 am

Alright Lads, Carson, Andre and I have our birthdays in February so I've decided to have a big Birthday gaming weekend. I'm going to reach out to Regina and Winnipeg guys and make this like the old days - remember those? Wink

 I'm going to call out the guys that haven't been to my house or should. Scott, Bob, Nathan A, Geoff, Nathan M, Frank, Ryan and friends in Winnipeg, Regina guys, and Saskatoon guys that we haven't games with yet.  As always, there will be food and corners of the house to sleep in if you drew the short straw and didn't get a room or couch. Smile

  We have to figure out what weekend works best for everyone and we also have the following weekends to plan around for those that are attending these events:

- Jan 21-22, Out of The Basement in Edmonton (I'm going to this unless I'm in B.C. for work)
- Feb 18-19 9th Age Team event in Edmonton (Long Weekend)
- Feb 25 Flames of War event in Regina (I'm going to this) Last event before V4 is released.

 So, with that we have the following weekends as an option:

Jan 28-29
Feb 4-5
Feb 11-12
Feb 18-19 (If no one is attending Edmonton team event) (Long Weekend!)

 Throw your vote!

One of those is a long weekend I think. That'd be my pick.

January 28-29 or February 11-12 are the only two weekends that work for me.  Even if you have your big thing on a different weekend I'll drive down one of those two weekends for some games.

Feb 4-5 I'm in Kindersley for my son's hockey tournament.
The long weekend I'm in Medicine Hat with the family.

I could do the Jan weekend. If it ends up happening that weekend I would probably need to catch a ride down with someone.

Fine Fine, i'm only going to say this. People signed up for 9th Age in Edmonton like 3 months in advanced. and your event is going to have :

A. Better People (like me)
B. More Games
C. More Food
D. Closer venue
E. Chiller Atmosphere

and yet cant get any commitments again. I mean maybe if you charged people a 40$ entry fee? Gave your event a different name? Ou got it!

"The 9th Age In Edmonton Except It's In Don's Basement In Moose Jaw But Still 9th Age Just Like In Edmonton!"

I mean its a little wordy but gets the point across. And tricks people who went to Edmonton to come to this ! Very Happy Just trying to help... We could start threatening family / loved ones? Again just spitballing ideas

I understand that fact in its entirety Scott, but thanks for catching up with the rest of the class. Very Happy

I'm just saying since Edmonton seemed to be a much more desired event, so people made sure they could make it 3 months in advance. Where Don's seems to be taken for granted as "always being there" so no one makes the extra effort to make sure their schedule is cleared even when Don gives them the options of any weekend within a 2 month period. I'm just trying to figure out why, is it because Don's isnt a real tournament? Is it because its in Moose Jaw? (which is closer than Edmonton i checked a map) Just Don's basement is a sweet venue to game and as much as i love Saskatoon I'd like there to be a spot in Moose Jaw to game too. I've been to every one of Don's weekends (i think) and the attendance has sharply fallen the last 3 + times and just don't want him to stop bothering hosting events all together.

Now I am in no way trying to speak for Don, and hell maybe i am jumping the gun on this (probably), but just learning from the experience of the last few Moose Jaw game weekends.

Anyways I'll be there regardless. IREGARDLESSLY even.

Excellent! See more people coming is good. I'll probably bring a couple Kill Team's too if people are interested.

I'm not interested in Blood Bowl, since this fucking site deleted my legendary Empire Team, the H.A. First's (same team as on my PS4 Blood Bowl Game) Saddened me greatly and i sooo dont feel like typing all of that out again haha so i'll stick to the video game, but still interested in seeing how it plays.

I'll never stop hosting weekends. I win if even one person shows up. Smile

Having written that, I'd like to see a good turn out. Keep in mind the point of the event is a Birthday thing, so Carson , Don and Andre have to be present - so the weekend will take that as priority.

if interested I might try a little mini seminar about some of the basics of painting as I understand them. A little walk through some basics like base coating and blending. I'd charge anyone who wants the trade secrets a couple beers probably.

Yeah i would be cool with donating a few wobbly pops to rekindle the basics.
Don I think it best if you puck a weekend. You have some feedback now.
@sean the difference with Edmonton is the date was picked, not up for discussion (not that discussion is bad to find what most works in this case) but it leaves too many people too many variables. I say pick the date and let people commit or plan to restructure their lives around warhammer just like in the good old days
