Well I have made the commitment. I have ordered my four-day pass along with tickets to play in the following events.

NMN0905678 Star Wars Miniatures 150 Point DCI Constructed Star Wars Miniatures 08/13/2009 09:00:00 AM
NMN0905679 Star Wars Miniatures 200 Point DCI Constructed Star Wars Miniatures 08/13/2009 03:00:00 PM
NMN0905682 Star Wars Miniatures 100 point DCI Constructed Star Wars Miniatures 08/14/2009 10:00:00 AM
NMN0905687 2009 Star Wars Miniatures U.S. National Championship Star Wars Miniatures 08/15/2009 10:00:00 AM 2

I am kicking around the idea of playing in the team tournament as well, but I didn’t want to commit at the moment with chatting with some of my buddies that are planning on going.

As far as a place to stay I will be crashing with a friend of mine in Noblesville. Yeah it is a bit of a drive away, but closer then home. Plus the price is right. FREE.

I hope to meet more of the community in person. More to come ……

Les, if you are planning on Dean making you breakfast, you are seriously going to be disappointed! HA HA HA
We'll see you at the HOF Breakfast then! Bring many pics of your new baby, because they make great "Good Luck Charms."

Well things seem to be shaping up fairly well. One change though is that it looks like I will be staying with freinds in Broad Ripple with some gaming freinds instead of Noblesville with some what "normal" freinds. The great thing about staying near Broad Ripple is the pizza at Union Jacks. I have had the famous Giadonos pizza in Chicago and I will say that this is every bit as good as that. They also have a great beer selection.

Moses has posted on the WOTC boards that the prize support for the SWM League might change to the 2007 format. Figures were awarded after every game. At the moment I have the complete set of JA, so getting pieces evey 3rd game really didn't do much for me. However after every game might change my thinking.

Word on the street is that some folks might get together for pie on Wed evening. I am waiting on the details to be sent to me, but I think I will try to be there.

Also some folks have ordered some shirt through me. Thanks to LoboStelle I have gotten a pretty good deal on them. I am not sure of the total price yet, because shipping need to be figured in. I can say they will be cheaper then I originally planned. I will bring the shirts with me to those who have contacted me. I think I might have 1 XL that is not spoken for.

I am looking forward to talking to Mapmaker, who has posted on the WoTC boards, that he will be in attendance this year and will have some of maps he is currently working on with him.

So this is shaping up to be a great time. i look forward to seeing you all there.

So with a little more then a week to go, things are starting to fall together.

As far as the T-shirts, there was a bit of miscommunication and I had to do a second order. Lobstelle will be bringing the shirts with him to the con. Cost is $11 per shirt.

It also looks like I am going to be out for the pie eating on Wed. evening. My wife has to work which leaves me to pick up the kid from the sitter and hang out till Carol, my wife, gets off work. My partner in crime is my buddy Nate, who says he has a login here but never uses it. I think we are going to try to hit the convention center Wed. night to get his badge.

Transportation and a place to stay has been worked out. I finally got my ticket from FedEx, while I was on vacation.

Nate and I are planning on the HOF breakfast, I hope you all don't mind if he tags along with me.

Working on packing the car. Plans have changed and I am leaving directly from work to pick up my buddy nate then of to meet everyone for pie on the south side.

Test some squads at our weekly game tonight....things did not go well for me.

I need to shower and get some sleep, because I know over the next few days I will be getting very little.

I will try to update this with pictures each evening.

See you all at the con
