The January meeting of HMGS-Midsouth was held at Wargames Jan. 16. Here is information on what was discusssed.
Membership dues were set at $10 per year. This money helps to support Nashcon and Siege of Augusta and provides discounted entrance to the Big Three: Historicon, Fall In, Cold Wars. We are in the process of moving our treasury to a new bank; shortly thereafter, we will set up to accept payment through PayPal (as well as by check).
The Web site is also moving to a new hosting site. That proved to be a bit more involved than was expected, but Peter Mancini expects to have that completed within the next few days, and he will then redirect the old URL to the new one.
Nashcon is shaping up. We are going to have an officially sanctioned Rogue Trader tournament, featuring Warhammer fantasy battles on Friday, 40K singles and doubles on Saturday, and Lord of the Rings on Sunday. There will be an additional charge of $5 per tournament on top of the $20 Nashcon membership. The Nashcon tournament will be mentioned in White Dwarf magazine.
Two historical tournaments are in the works. Stay tuned.
We have about finished working out space requirements, and it looks like Tillercon computer gaming convention will be held concurrently with Nashcon. Final details should be worked out within the next few days. It was motioned and passed that anyone attending Tillercon, which is a separate convention and must be paid for separately, can also play at Nashcon for an additional $5 on top of the Tillercon admission—which is significantly more than Nashcon because they have to rent computers, but it includes a free computer game, as I understand it. Entrance to the dealer room will be open to all, of course.
Al Gaiser will send out dealer letters next week.
Bryant Williams is investigating prices and options on creating plastic tumblers with a Nashcon logo for sale to help increase our treasury.
More details as they become available.
