This year, I made the goal I set for myself to prepare and run an event at Charcon.  My game was 28mm skirmish game set to match the theme of the con which was “Pirates vs. Ninjas”.  I had a lot of initial interest, but as I expected, once the big name games got going, there was little interest.  I was just as happy, as I got a couple good sessions in, and it freed up my schedule to play Sailpower and Techcommander a lot, and to spend time with some old friends.  That being said, I only got a three pics, so here they are and I am including links to other sites with images from the con.

We made the local news.  Why do they always interview the ones with the strangest costumes?

and finally, the pics I wish I had taken, which include some shots from my game.
