So I thought I would get this thing ready.

Nate and I began our preparations for Gencon this by going to the Regionals. I was looking to get him his Gencon Badge by winning and fate smiled on the Miller Family..... thanks to a lot of luck I was able to secure his free badge.

So step 1 for going to Gencon.

Step 2 see if anyone else wants to ride with us. Might as well cut gas costs.

ok Guys I am going to let you in on the biggest event ever at Gencon!!!!!

Try to keep this quiet we dont want a stampede.

This you for only $500 (us currency) you can get an autograph from me!!!

That is right hard to believe that you can get this this at half the normal costs.... but hey it is a gencon special. Think of it an autograph you can take with you from the original DCI SATAN himself!!!!!!

Also for those of you who will be missing the annoyance of your children, I will be renting Nate out. Rates $1 per hour. It is $10,000.00 to return him (I am thinking that you will think this is a bigger bargain than the autograph)

Ear muffs for your time with Nate will be $2000.00 a minute (again a huge bargain I am thinking)

For an extra $500 I will also autograph a piece of virtual paper and mail it to you.

Let me know if you want to go ahead.

UPDATE!!! UPDATE !!!

Nate and I had a trial run. We spent an hour in the van today. Nate pretended to be Ray driving really slow. I only hit Nate twice. I have only a month to get it down to zero. :twisted: :mrgreen:

Dean, I would like to book Nate for 2 hours so we can go to Hooters. Also I would like to buy 2 autographs, as Jake and Lou collect them on SWM Cards I think the DCI rules might make a nice Christmas gift. There will be a check coming in the mail :)

ok so what can I say about the great weekend that we call Gencon!!!

To all the people that were I want to say thank you for allowing me to be your judge for the Champs. All players exihibtied great sportmansship and luckily we had very few issues certainly nothing worth going into detail about.

Well we started our trip early Weds morning and headed out to Bolivar. Once there we picked up Ray and his Bolivar crew.


During the trip to Indy I think Ray at some figured out I am a slightly aggressive driver. Basically I am the polar opposite to his driving style which I think if you saw driving Miss Daisy you know what I am talking about.

It was a fun trip and I highly reccommend not drinking a bottle of 5 hour energy while driving over 80 miles an hour. The phone calls started rolling in from Jim, Lou, Bill and others wanting to know just how close we were. It is a great feeling to be heading there and know people are actually looking forward to seeing the DCI Satan in the flesh. On the way there it was discovered that Lou was bringing a date to Gencon. I was excited to see what type of person would date the Hall of Famer Lou V. Well turns out he must have a silver tongue when it comes to talking to the ladies because she was a beautiful young woman. My first thought was what the hell?!?! how did Lou manage this.

So we went out on Weds nite to Houlihans and it was there we met Jack and his wife. What a great couple they are. Jack I must say you guys are great and meeting you was a highlight to the entire weekend. I base my Gencon experience on the people more than the gaming. You really were great!!!!

Thursday morning we had the HOF breakfast. What started kind of as a silly thing to meet at Steak n Shake turned into a full blown legitimate 40 person event. It was terrific. I got to meet Kaz aka Andrew. I saw Steve Spikermans there which is always a hoot!!!! I met Chris Torgeson/Boba 52 and that was great.

Oh Geez I forgot to mention how much fun the previous nites RPG was..... crap my brain is on overload from trying to remember all the fun..... aggggghhhhh.

Man ok time to take a break I will post some pics but I am pausing this.

It was great to finally meet you guys as well. Sorry I was not able to do more gaming, other than a few League games here and there. But helping out at the Indy Knights booth kept me hopping.

See you guys around the galaxy.

If they're looking for a new "Jaws" for the next James Bond movie, they need not look any further. :P
