This is just for anyone to add last minute ideas, comments, suggestions, etc.

I just thought of one. Perhaps many people will be using our sweet TFU Squad boxes. This is not a good idea! If so many people are taking them, they will get mixed up many times over! I am customizing some boxes so there is no way for any of mine to get mixed up. I suggest others do the same.

Of course, the number one complaint every year: HYGIENE! ! ! Let's all stay fresh in mind, and in body!

Yeah, Hygeine is a biggie lol! Having gone to WWChicago for like 6-7 years in a row I know how bad it can get. I always have gum or mints with me (so if the guy you are playing randomly offers you some gum, it may be me). Knowing how it can get stuffy/sweaty I also plan to bring a small stick of deoderant with me just in case, you know...

And I actually was planning on using my TFU Squad Box....might have to find some stickers or something now. Crud, don't really have any stickers though...gotta think about it now...

Okay, this is funny! I am working on packing everything, and found a sheet of stickers from some coloring book I never used. I put them all over my box w/ calculator, Laser Level, pen, sleeves, etc. I know that those are mine! If you want a sticker or two, I am bringing the sheet with me for whomever needs them, lol!

Ummm....I have so much trade bait lying around, I'm not sure that I want to carry it all...Maybe I will just put together a catalog...

While deoderant is a good start - shower...with soap and water. :idea: :D

Emphasis on "soap."

Luckily, 99% or so of all SWM players are aware of the importance of good hygiene. You might need a breath mask, though, if you have to walk past the Magic area to get to our section. LOL

I'm right there with you, lol. I have a dupe of almost every LotF R/VR plus crapolla of other sets and I really don't want to bring all of them out for people to grab at. Might actually be better that way, lol!

Yeah, I'm planning to make a list with two columns...one with what I have for trade, and one with what I am looking for. Or perhaps two different sheets. Then I can just mark things off as I go, and pull out pieces when I actually need them.

I figure that most of the people we are seeing in the SWM will likely be back on another day, so a catalog of the cards would work and I can arrange to bring the mini at a later point.

Hey, everyone! One thing! On Saturday morning, I would really love to get a fantastic group photo! I think this is a phenomenal idea and this picture could fit perfectly on this site, a site of real people who love this game, and gather together to play "casually"! We will find someone to take a picture or two (we don't want to take up too much time) with some good cameras! I'll be wearing my Gamer's shirt for sure! Can't wait to see you all there!

We routinely play with a guy who works until 4AM, then gets up and heads straight to play minis. And his friend smokes. We call them "Team Halitosis."

Hmm, I might have to bring my little fan, too. And lady H and I will bring tins or something for our squad boxes. My trades are in a duffle bag, so I'm not worried about them.

Hehehe, Saturday will be a good day for pics for Lady H and I...;) We'll definitely be in the group photo. See you there!!!

That's it! I'm going to speed the entire way (yes, that means over the posted, legal Speed Limit), and make Dean pay the ticket for all of the anguish I've put up with this last year!

No, no hothie. reread his title - Gold Standard. It means he has time traveled into the future and returned form the Nebraska State fair. He is playing 3PO on a stick.

One more thing to remember - Do not forgot your DCI #!!! If you do not want to carry your DCI card around, log your number into your cell phone. I've watched a number of people have to fill out new DCI cards because they did not have it. And believe me - it is a pain down the road to get the two numbers merged!

I must apologize that I didn't put this up on here beforehand, but I totally forgot about it! I asked Fox to make us this emblem that we can use to make buttons out of, and proudly wear at Gencon. I am headed to get a little customizable button right now and print it out to wear!

Naboo Soldiers, emr? Looking forward to finding out - I'm sure it will be quirky, utterly unlike any other squad being played, and surprisingly effective.

As usual, I'll probably build my Masters squad the night before.

See you all there!
