BARRAGE Con Report.  The HAWKS did a good job and had a well run convention.  More people than ever.  A few NOVAGii.  They are planning a two day event next year.  It will start at noon on Friday and run through Saturday night until 9:00 pm.


World  Boardgaming Championships Report: Fred Bauer reports that for the third year in a row the Kingstown Gaming Brigade A Team finished in the top ten (actually #9) out of 78 teams.  While not as impressive as their previous 3rd and 4th place finishes,  it was a remarkable accomplishment given that one of the four players was unavoidably unable to compete.  Ron Draker (Julius Caesar/ 2nd time) and Malcolm Smith (Hammer of the Scots/ fourth (!) time) both won their events (only 9% of participants accomplished that feat) and Team Captain Mark Guttag finished 10th in an enormous 100+ field of "Facts in Five" players.  While they only list the top 30 teams our B and C Teams probably finished in the middle of the pack  with three 2nd place finishers;  Greg Ottoman in Command & Colors Ancients/ Brian Arnow/Dien Bien Phu/ Fred Bauer in Victory in Europe.      Not too shabby given that the  competition keeps getting tougher and tougher (the first place team foursome - which included the legendary Brian Rieff - had won their individual game championships a total of 30x!).
