Overall, everyone had a great time. The only dislike about the entire event was my choice of using Envelopment for the second mission that requires a serious revision of points. The tables looked great and IMO well balanced. We even was featured in two photos online for a paper and one of the pictures was in the paper on Sunday!

Everyone walked away with prizes. I was lucky this time as before I signed on with Warlord as a Sarge and they was an official supporter for the event  that I worked with other companies to have some bonus stuff to throw out as prizes as the entry fee was $20 in advance and $25 at the door for a single day. Part of the fee went to two great charities but I also wanted people to not only have 3 great games, meet new players and have a good time but feel like they walked away with something and happy.

Army breakdown was: 2 British, 2 American, 1 Soviet and 3 Germans for this round. We had a great variety in lists with no real duplicate lists or concepts.

I wanted to thank everyone that attended and I want to thank all the sponsors for the event making this event for Flordia successful and a blast. This event supported two great charaties The Spring of Tampa Bay and Autism Speaks!
