Having lost a good percentage of imported players to the Irish Masters the Tartan Brawl numbers are much lower than I'd like. With the numbers much reduced (unless I get a whole load of surprise attendees) I may have to change the format to two separate events run on different days. Emergency measures will have to be put into place.
Sadly, Timpson's wasn't happy to etch my dog tags, the man behind the counter looked at me like I was some species of axe murderer when I asked to do 30 tags with a custom graphic. So I'm getting the standard embossing done, no fancy Iron Kingdoms fonts I'm afraid unless someone wants to fork out enough cash for me to order a minimum of 250 bespoke metal key rings from a promotions company.
Next year I think I'll put in a pre-pay option for the Tartan Brawl since those soft southerners seem to prefer that. It also commits people to coming along, as it's a big hassle to get their cash back and hopefully reduce the number of last minute disappearing acts. Finally, it gives me more predictable numbers.
I've also just heard that GUGS plans to run Conflagration in November this year. Which I believe to be a blatant lie as that would involve having a different committee at the time. Students being students, this means it's going to get fobbed off on a bunch of people who think the previous committee should have organised it, and in the end, very little (if anything) will have been done. Seeing as students are my lowliest minions however, I'm sure I can whip them into action at least long enough to run some sort of event.
