Attendance is looking pretty good (and lots have paid! Thank you!). A few people have bowed out, hope to get a few more. As always, refunds given this year at any time. So Covid . . .I’ve been watching very carefully, the positive test rate in CA has thankfully leveled off and appears to be in decline. Yolo county (where Davis is), is looking very good compared to the rest of CA too. So feel free to strong arm a friend to come with, should be room. I’m certain masks will be required for indoors, but I will setup a couple outside tables for people to play on with consent from both opponents.
The US masters committee is meeting again and we will have a 2021 masters event! (championship played Feb 2022). Looks like this event will be in LA this year, and the Infernal Zoo is a feeder event and will offer up at least one spot for the winner. We will be taking 2020 and 2021 tournaments into account for attendance. That’s about all the specifics we got, so win this thing and get your ticket! I have logged payments on the website (www.infernalzoo.com), if you have paid your free to pick your giant from the giants page (kept updated with selected Models), if there is a “B” by your paid mark, It means I have you logged as paying the $15 for the banquet.
One change I have made is that Saturday Banquet will now be outside out on my Deck. Seems better this year then being in a crowded restaurant. I’ll have some beer on hand and will arrange getting party trays from the Irish Pub. The Cost will still be $15 so please get that to me when you can, and bring more beer haha.
Friday my house will be open all day for gamming.
For those flying in or traveling , let me know if you need pickup from the airport, or would like to crash at my place (may make you carry boxes of terrain 😊 )
I’m changing the List Due date to Sunday Sept 19 at midnight, This give you 2 more weekends to refine things! Email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. After that deadline you will be assessed a penalty, need to get them input and ready for the list review PodCast (Glory of the Golden State). Please review the tournament packet!, and as this is a monster themed event, I field a lot of monstrous terrain so watchout for those big unit footprints, as well as limited sight lines ….
Recommend you use new recruit for your list, or text file I can import. Note I will have this setup as an event in NewRecruite, so you can see everyone’s list and if you have the game feature you will be able to setup any of your opponents to select their spells and have a hyperlinked list. It’s a pretty slick feature.
Don’t forget to provide a 350 pt Giant Contingent for Game 3 separate from the rest of your list (has no effect on your main list). As I’m giving away giants, you should all have one handy, haha. I can also provide painted ones to anyone wanting a loner.
I’m looking forward to seeing everyone old and new! While there are some great players attending this themed event is focused on a celebration of the hobby, sportsmanship, and everyone having a great time.
