Battle for Stones River 2011 Wrap Up and Announcement!

From Bossman

First I would like to thank everyone that took part in the Battle for Stones River this year. I feel that it was the most successful tournament so far. We had a wonderful day of war gaming with 208 games of 40K played inside 10 hours with no major problems. We owe this to you, the players. There are a few others that are responsible for this being a great tournament, of course, Chris with Grand Adventures and my partners in terrain Danny, Josh and Keith. Thanks goes to Travis and Ken for being our rules judges. Also I wanted to thank Scott with the Hammercast and Black Library author Mike Lee for coming and spending their Saturday with us. Finally I would like to thank Matt Rogers and his boss Travis with All State Insurance for providing our lunch for the day.

So the whole reason behind the tournament is to provide a high quality large scale tournament for our local community. Out of simple enjoyment do I continue to run the tournaments and attempt every year to build upon what we did the previous year. So in an endeavor to make thing grow I am happy to announce that the Battle for Stones River 2012 will be part of the Games Workshop North American Independent Grand Tournament Circuit. What does this mean? Well it means that the top two overall players will receive a ticket to the Throne of Skulls tournament which will be in Memphis,TN. in October 2012. Games Workshop will be advertising this tournament via a wide variety of means, so we are going to attempt to find a suitable location that we can expand our tournament to more than 50 people. The core of the tournament will remain the same, the same scoring system, theme and so on.

In closing, this next year is going to be huge. I am always looking for ways to improve, so any constructive feedback or ideas are appreciated. Keep an eye out on the forums for further information about next year’s event. Thanks again to all that participated and congratulations to our winners for this year: Kevin Drury (Overall Champion), Rex Cullor (Best General), Shannon Dickens (Best Sportsman) and Keith Hoffman (Best Painted). I hope everyone has a great year and we see you back for another great event!
