Foodhammer 2012

It's been a while!

First off, I want to let you know that after the smoke had cleared, we had raised $2060 for the Langley Food Bank, and had about 300lbs of food to give them.  For the first year it happened, I'm just blown away by the response, by the support and generosity of all involved.  You know who you are, give yourself a extra point on that game-changing armour save when you need to make it.

Now to the nitty, and the gritty.   Foodhammer 2012, will be held at GameStars again on Saturday October 27th for Warhammer 40K, and Sunday October 28th for Warhammer Fantasy.  Obviously, the kinds of games we'll be playing on the Saturday will depend on which edition of Warhammer 40,000 we're at. And you know what I mean by that, if you believe the internets.  Just don't study that ruleset that's floating around TOO much - it may not be the final draft, hahaha.

We decided to move the date of the tournament to accommodate our friends in the US who might be interested in coming without missing Thanksgiving dinner.  I realise that the tournament is now being held on the weekend before Halloween, so mayyybe we'll do a costume prize? No promises!

So that's it for now.  The ball is rolling.  We aim to have more fabulous prizes and merchandise this year than we did last year.  We really should buy more dice this year, and there's another piece of must-have memorabilia that I'll be looking into.  Announcements on those when I have something to show you.

Those of you who attended last year, I really hope you'll all come again in October, and bring some friends - if we can squeeze more tables in there WE WILL!
