"On the Road again"

Hello All,

This past Saturday we had what was without a doubt the largest NOVA Open Kick-off EVER!!!
28 brave souls showed up to battle the elements and each other (for work space- LOL)  all for the greater glory of our beloved NOVA Open War gaming convention. Thanks to all of you and a special thanks to Mike and L. for making it possible.

We hit the ground running and  managed to get all kinds of stuff done for 2014. we blew through all of the X wing tables and sorted out the Infinity terrain (giving us a clearer picture of what needs to be done) Filled several boxes of prefab wall sections for the 40K GT and managed to actually start assembly of line of sight blockers for the event. In the End even Fantasy got some love with "Out of the box" ideas from our art staff.

Well I have talked long enough so here is what you came here for- a first glance at what is coming up this year...

At the end of the day everyone was pretty much beat

After everything was put up Mike ran a Hill building demo that I heard was pretty cool. (I went home as I was dead on my feet.) This was such a great day- I hope you agree. :)

We have another one this month so look out for it and if you are interested in joining in on the fun add a comment or go here and find out how.

Till next time
