Venue � Wollongong Senior Citizens� Centre, 192-196 Gipps Rd, Gwynneville,
Assuming we don�t get booked out, it�s OK to play only a few games if that�s
all you can make, in fact this actually helps the umpire work out draws,
please note the traditional late start times to allow Sydney players to

, Mike Richardson will be
roped in to help with DBA as required.
Rules: DBMM is due for publication in March. Cavalier in the UK is taking
pre-orders. DBA will use v2.1 and whatever standard competition protocols
are used (I�ll take advice on this).
Competition rounds: DBM
Two per day, lasting 3 & 3/4hours + or � D15 minutes. Players should be at
the venue for game-1, on Saturday and Sunday at 9.30am, Monday by
negotiations with DBMM players � DBA players please get there by 9.30am.
Round-1 opponents will be matched to avoid club-mates/ same city / same
nation playing, thereafter the usual dodgy Swiss draw (random opponent on
the same score).
DBA � expect 4 games. With draws to avoid club-mates but to match
historical enemies where possible.
Army Details and Lists:
DBMM Armies of 410AP from books 1-4. Players can also enter �programmed
armies� and play up to six different armies over the weekend, nominating in
advance which army for which round. Send lists to the organiser � I may
farm out checking if I get too busy.
Note that you can use the DBM lists or all the DBMM options for your list �
but no cherry picking between them. The use of DBM lists is for those
players with existing armies and that lists tend to be more variable and may
change significantly prior to official publication. The DBMM lists will
probably not be ready in time for the event, however if drafts are
circulating I�ll think about a 2-week prior cut off � please confirm.
I�ll take submissions on any list-specific stratagems to be included.
DBA players can use programmed armies as well.
Tables, Terrain and Dice:
DBM Tables will be 1800mm x 1200mm, bring your own terrain. DBA will be the
standard size with pre-set terrain. The organisers will supply dice to be
Will not be used this year as players may not be familiar with DBMM.
Please enter by April 1sth � late entries may well be accepted up to the
start of game-1 but contact the organiser to confirm. There is probably
room for only 30-32 players so it will be first in for a spot.
Visitors � feel free to swing by and lurk.
Prizes � podium finishers, peer-judged sportsman, peer-judged best presented
army, peer-judged best terrain. Event prizes for killing generals, looting
baggage, that sort of thing.
DBA will also have an Evil-Gong DBA army as a raffle prize, players earn one
raffle ticket for entering and one for each game they win.
Your DBMM scores will be converted to 10-0 will be included in the Evil Gong
Grand Prix, somehow.
Trivia Comp � may happen if I get time (I didn�t last year or the year
Accommodation and Socialising:
There is floor-space at my place for free, I�m guessing a search on Tourism
Wollongong website (HYPERLINK
will give a
range of more civilised options. Players arriving on Friday night feel free
to gather at my place and be subjected to beer and pizza, Saturday night is
the traditional haunting of an unsuspecting local restaurant.
