Back from Nova!

So a long weekend of 14 games. I got there early thursday met up with my friend Andrew Gonyo, hung out for awhile, and then played my whiskey challenge against him. He then proceeded to kick my ass. A surprisingly good start actually since it really put me in my place. I've been beating up so many locals lately that I forgot what it's like to play a good player, and getting my butt kicked so hard was a great wake up call. My over-confidence flew right out the window and I really stepped it up for the rest of the weekend.

Well for those of you who don;t know, I took the invitational! Best general going 5-0 playing Marc Parker, Andrew Blackwell, Mark Ferek, Kurt Clauss, and Aaron Aelong. All great games against great opponents. For what it's worth I also took Ren Man by a mile, but I couldn't win 2 prizes so they gave it to my 5th round opponent Aaron.

In the open I went undefeated day one, and scrubbed out quite hard day 2, losing twice. Once, where I had no business losing, I just made a really dumb move. (Like walking off objectives lol). You win some you lose some I suppose. A bunch of my friends placed well, with 3 of them taking their brackets.

Congrats to Tony for taking the Open 2 years in a row. Maybe one of these days we'll actually get to play lol.

i'll get battle reports up in the next few days. Sorry if this is all over the place with infomation and incoherent, it's been a long weekend.

    Since this is the internet I am abliged to ask when you are going to be posting an army list with instuctions for use for those of us who wish to shamelessly copycat your awesomeness!
