I know there will be cross-posts. Sorry, will try to get lists sorted after Heat. Please forward info as appropriate.
August Historical Gaming Events - Gulf South
A big thank you to Cynthia, Lon and Mark of MS who are helping with the Heat of Battle Program and Event insert. Also thanks to all those who have volunteered to take shifts at Heat of Battle or the after-hours hotel game fest.
1) Register now to Attend Heat of Battle, Aug 22-24 - Registering at least one week ahead assures early-bird fees. Lots more games than last year! Questions???
2) August 2. National WWII Museum presents "Die Brucke" - "The Bridge" film from 1959. A famous film showing the consequences of Nazi indoctrination of young people. 3) August 7. First Thursday. Join us as we playtest Mark Mod's movie-based fight aboard a scale model tramp steamer from the movie "Passage to Marseilles". This game will also run at Heat of Battle.
4) I saw a sign that Galactic Games will soon be moving to new digs in Kenner on Williams Blvd., leaving the old W. Esplanade address. You may wish to call 'em.
504-885-GAME. (website still lists W. Esplanade)
Word from Battlefront is that they are starting to get back into Historicals! Please support your local game shop.
5) Speaking of local game shops, remember Gamers Dojo located on the Joint Reserve Base down at Belle Chasse.
6) And Little Wars in Baton Rouge.
7) Hubcon dates have been set for Sept 19, 20, and 21. Tim Broome and Wayne Trovinger are planning a good set of games. Contact them thru www.hubcon.org<http://www.hubcon.org/
> to register or run a game.
Don't forget that this info goes to about 250 folks in the region. If you have something to add, esp from east TX, LA, MS, AL, west FL, please let me know, esp in the last week of each month.. I don't have time to scour websites, Yahoogroups and forums, but I do want to support your Historical Gaming events.
