PostPosted: Mon Nov 06, 2023 5:01 pm    Post subject: BillCon 2024

With the cancellation of Cold Wars for 2024 (they can't find a convention director), we've been casting about for some kind of replacement event for that time frame.

Bill has graciously decided to open his home in Wilton CT for a 2-day event, BillCon!

15-16 March 2024.

Friday 15th will consist of Fast Warrior, starting noon. That evening we'll play Matt's Circus Maximus setup in 15mm.

Saturday the 16th will be themed Doubles, the Theme being Italian Condotta. We're still working out the final armies and weighting for Doubles.

While Bill has plenty of room outdoors, we figure mid-March in CT, despite global warming, might not be doable. Thus, we'll be inside which means six 8x5 tables. This shouldn't be an issue for Doubles on Saturday but it means a 12-player limit on Friday. I also don't think that'll be an issue given past turnout and the fact it's Fast Warrior.

We haven't worked out lodging info yet but will post that as it becomes available.

Rich Kroupa and I will drive up from his place but the timeline on that hasn't been worked out yet.

It will help if people who plan on attending, post something here (you don't if you've already posted here). It'll give us some idea of how to plan it.

However, saying "yes I'll be there" isn't a pre-condition. If you show up, you'll play.

Lest you think this is too few lists...Sean Patrick Scott has shown us that Italian Condotta is at least 4 different lists, if not 1 or 2 more.

Not counting the one Mark Stone used a few years back. I tended to use Milan and Venice. There are several other City States which allow for differences that I either did not consider or passed on. There is a lot of variety in these lists.

I'd appreciate it if you have your plans more or less settled, mainly Doubles participants, and haven't posted already, please post.

Rich and I are gonna team up unless there are people out there looking for partners in which case, email me and we can coordinate.
