"But Brent, what do we care if you're running some podunk-North-Texas-tournament? What about some hugs and gropings? Where are the hugs and gropings, Brent?"
"But Brent, you support Unicorns, why not support my big toe fetish?"
"But Brent, I want to Stalk Jawaballs, too!"
(I'll do you serious bodily harm on that last - don't test me. He's mine.)
I hear you, I hear you!
But you aren't considering the benefits here... I need experience running tournaments so I can speak knowledgeably on the subject. My friend and alternate-nemisis the Master Manipulator (every store needs one) has been the Head Cheese in Charge for quite some time. He's alluded to all the hidden pitfalls, but there's only one real way to learn (the hard way).
(If my brother Richard was the Head Cheese, that'd be pretty freakin' hilarious!)
So be patient! I'll soon have plenty to write about.
For You Participants
The advance pricing is closed yesterday, and we have 14 participants. There is room for two more, but those sad sacks will have to pay the door price.
I tell you that to tell you this: while they may gain some hidden understanding of the day based on the mission info I'm dropping in your lap, they're paying for it!
Mission One Dawn of War, Capture and Control
The objective will automatically be placed 12" on and 18" from the right
Mission Two Spearhead, Annihilation
Mission Three Spearhead, Seize Ground
There will be five objectives; one in the center and one each in all four
table quarters, defined as 15" each of the two board edges.
Mission Four Pitched Battle, ???
See you tomorrow!
