Operation Cromwell 2-3 Oct 2010

Flames of War Tournament

We had 13 players involved from 3 gaming clubs - Camp Cromwell, Kingston Bunker Rats & the Launceston Gaming Club.  Not all could play every round due to other commitments, but we had 8 tables and a flexible rostering program that could accomodate varying player numbers.  3 of the tables were designed & supplied by the DAK Bunker Rats.  St George's Church Hall was  a great venue - centrally located, close to Jackman & McRoss, Da Angelo's & the POW (for watching the Grand Final Replay between rounds 2 & 3), plus lots of trestles & plenty of space.
