VET WARS 2011 / Nov 11 - 13

Well we can wrap up another Vet Wars.  It all came together very well and it seemed that everyone had a great time.  We had plenty of games and plenty of players.  Food was provided which was topped by some delicious Gumbo, rice and Mufaletta's brought in from our very own Louisiana Tiger Tony Fryer.  Thanks Tony.  Personally, I got to play in John Owens Makassar Strait Naval Battle which was a blast.  The next thing I did against my better judgment, was to play in the DBA Campaign knowing that the CSGA DBA Champs were coming up.  Well, as expected being Hittites in the middle of the darn map I didn't last long.   I also played in the DBN tourney put on by Tony.  I played with Rick Stockton and we used the British Army without any Heavy Cavalry.  We lost both battles but still had a good time.  Next time Rick we bring a heavier force!

I thank all of our Game Masters that put on good games all the way around.  Instead of trying to describe everything I would rather just present some of the pictures I took.

Thanks to everyone that attended and made this one of the best Vet Wars yet.  And of course thanks to Doug Wildfong for coordinating this event.
