Are themes regularly held as team events? Only half the players need
to own an appropriate army.

I know it won't work perfectly, but what about trying to start open tourneys
with as close to historical match ups as possible instead of a pure random
draw? Of course after round one, all bets are off, but that might also be a
good
way to at least get a few more historical match ups.

nad/or more interest teams with you.

I would hope better and more interesting to provide extra coverage
with themes that are not the run of the mill standards that have
been run over and over at HMGS-E for years, or at least ones that
are in between cycles at the other points total.

We did that one year, back when we were still in the Tennis Barn.
Twas a Roman theme of some type.

I don't think it did anything to increase participation in terms of
sheer number of players.

That being said, I love thematic tournaments and we can certainly do
this at Cold Wars. We only do one theme per year (two proved too be
too many year in and year out) but another idea to ponder would be
for one year run the Hcon Theme on Friday as a Doubles event. I
don't want to do that this year, I like to give everybody plenty of
advance warning but next year, if there's enough interest, I can
look into making Cold Wars another "Doubles Theme". The biggest
question would be what theme.

Scott,



Why not use the same theme each year for Historicon and Cold Wars. The fact
that the Cold War tournament would be a team event would allow enough
variation.

I'd rather not have the theme as a team event. Just me.
