Since we wrapped up a very successful 40kegger 6 I've taken a bit of a nerd break. But now I'm back and ready to start posting, playing and painting again!
I want to thank everyone who came out to and made it the awesome event that it was! Special thanks to the guys who came in from out of town. Andrew Sass and his Wife Tiffany from Minnesota and the 40kegger Satellite team (aka Brandon Wargaming League guys).
A big super dooper tuggs and kisses thanks needs to go out again Christian and Mike from Astronomi-con. They've helped us out since the beginning to get our event to where it is. Without them, we wouldn't be where we are today. They've helped us with everything from advice to terrain.
Speaking of terrain, I just want to thank the other dudes that helped us out with that again this year. Garth from Maxx Collectibles, The Astro guys and Byron. Without you guys we'd be playing with Phone Book hills and Soup Can towers. As most of our collected monies go towards venue, beer, food and prizes, we can't buy much of our own terrain... So thanks again guys!
Last but not least, again we had a ton of kick ass prizes for our silent auction! Thanks to all the sponsors who donated kick ass shwag! Maxx Collectibles, Secret Weapon Miniatures, Burn In Designs, 40k Radio for the T-shirts, On-Call Software, Mechani-kon, Astronomi-con, and Mike S!
This year we decided that we would also do a fundraiser for Manitoba Mutts Dog Rescue during the event. We raffled off a Battle Foam P.A.C.K 720 (graciously donated by Maxx Collectibles) and sold custom 40kegger re-roll dice, that could be used once per game. Because of your generosity, we raised $680 for Manitoba Mutts, plus a ton of much needed supplies for their dogs in care!
But wait, there's more! If you'd still like to help Manitoba Mutts (in a non monetary manner), they are in desperate need of fosters for their dogs!
"As well as looking for loving homes for our rescue "mutts", we are also seeking foster homes, who will help with the transition process - from abandoned / neglected / relinquished lifestyles to forever second chance families.
Fostering a dog is also a great opportunity for those who are considering getting a dog, but unsure. All we ask is you offer a loving environment for the dog and take him/her to the vet when required. We provide the food and supplies, and pay the vet bills.
Foster families are the foundation to our rescue running. The more foster families we have, the more dogs we are able to rescue.
If you are interested in getting more information regarding fostering, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org."
|For example, this 8 month old girl needs a new foster home! Information about her can be found HERE|
ps. I swear I'm gonna crack open my 7th edition rule book today!
