It's that time again! Tuesday night X-Wing and boy did we have a crowd tonight. I finally got the pleasure of meeting Eric Maynard and his brother Brandon. There was also another gentleman with them by the name of Brady. I believe he's from the Chattanooga area. I didn't get much of a chance to talk to him so I don't know if he wads just in for a visit or if he actually lives local. Reuben was there tonight and he played Keith this evening. John was also there this week and he played, I believe, the other Brandon. Billy was there playing against Morgan. Eric, himself, played James. So we had a fine turnout. Josh wa also there and he had just finished playing Keith when I arrived around 7pm.
As you can see we had a full crowd tonight. I was glad to see it and hope to see it more often. For some, it's a pretty hefty trip to make to Johnson City and for others not so much. However, we are hoping to increase our size a bit and also make travel a bit easier for some because we are talking to Mulligan's Gaming to see about setting up a Saturday meet-up there. That should give everyone a bit more leway for getting games together for the League play.
That's something else to note. Reuben is holding a tournament at the Johnson City Community Center just next to the Cardinal Park this coming July 23rd for those of you that can make it and are interested. He posted details in Shadow Squadron. (https://www.facebook.com/groups/127210327682470/?ref=bookmarks). I believe it's a $20 entry fee for everything. I hope to see some or all of you there. It really depends on my situation at that point. I may have my little one so I'm not sure I'll be able to make that tournament. However, there will always be opportunities. There is also the tournament in Knoxville this weekend, check TriCIties Syndicate for that one (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1654044641547238/?ref=bookmarks). Lastly, we have posted (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Xgy-Y32-V__sFf1zFYCO9DWNPTrfosZNPFl4EWBjhtU/pub), the information for the League Season for Shadow Squadron's debute season. It's $10 a head and that money goes directly to prize support, as we are strictly non-profit here. So please come join us somewhere in all this and have some fun and fly casual.
Tonight I saw several lists. I didn't fly tonight as I wanted to ensure that everyone got their chance to play. So Carnor and his Ties stayed home tonight. However, as shown above, we had some good games. I have pictures that I'll upload Shadow Squadron later and Tri Cities as well. I saw Palpatine tonight, I saw a few Tie lists and I even saw a couple of BroBots (at least that's what my guess is that they were). We had a variety of lists and a variety of good players. I am not ashamed to tell you that I suck at this game and every time we meet; I learn something new. Tonight, I think I learned more bouncing from table to table just watching each pair play than I could have just playing the original game I was set to do with John. Everyone flew well and had a blast.
I was glad to see everyone tonight and hope to see you guys again next week. For those traveling to Knoxville, be safea and bring back some good stories!
