First impressions -- the remodel is nice, but I'll miss the old breakfast room. Many a morning in there reading overnight turns and bloodgame results. The new carpet upstairs and in the conference room is even more hideous than before. I didn't think that was possible. Rooms are still the same but have RFID cards instead of the magnetic swipe ones that you'd have to swipe 6 or 7 times before it let you in. Those I won't miss.

Good turnout for the tourney and RSI is reasonably on top of the input for Friday. Looking forward to a long day tomorrow.

Thank you for posting pictures of the face. While I can't be there, I like to see what's happening. Keep posting those pics.

What's happening is a 'bunch of old nerds just shuffling papers around!' as somebody's daughter once so aptly put it. Wink

Still, I'd like to be there shuffling too...don't even have any proxied. Have fun and enjoy, those that are there!

Appreciate the photos!

Can someone explain the process? I'm curious since I've never attended, but do have a few proxy's. For example, Is that rack of printouts the actual fight descriptionA?

Sure wish I could be there ...

My first proxy was killed in the DM 209 - APPRENTICES TOURNAMENT ... LITE (35-102) ... Cry ... But I'm glad I could find out ... Almost real-time at -- http://www.reality.com/ff50con.htm

Its great that you "attenders" take a moment and communicate with us "non-attenders". Thanks!

Yes, those are the printed fight results on the rack. Managers pick them up as they are printed.

This really does look like fun. If the wife and I stay in North America, I will try to make it to one.

Action from Sunday

Here you can see the "Wall of Death". Marmaduke printed out tombstones for people to write the names of warriors they killed during the tourney.
