REGISTRATION & COSTS Registration for the entire tournament will be only $10. (Please keep in mind that the Wrecks and Destruction counter sheet alone is worth $10!
of the need for us to plan on providing map boards and counters, we
require that all participants pre-register via the web, with PayPal
payment. We cannot guarantee a spot in the tournament to those who do not pre-register.
We may be able to accommodate a few walk-ins, but there are no
guarantees to this. Please consider pre-registration mandatory.
Registration Discounts Players
who are able to provide AtB and/or SoS map boards and counters will get
a discount on their registration. You will get $3 off for each game
set you can bring to potentially share with other players.
HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS For
those of you traveling from out of town to attend, we have identified
several good hotels at a variety of price and quality points. This is
the same web page the SWA uses for it's annual convention in October,
Council of Five Nations. Please ignore references to the October con -
the hotel info is still valid. Link:
ABOUT THE SWA's CONFLICT OF HEROES GROUP The
Schenectady Wargamers Association has had a group of CoH players
meeting twice a month for over two years now. Group membership has
fluctuated over the years, and is currently at six solid members. We
have played many of the published scenarios, and have experimented with
custom-designed scenarios and ASL conversions. One member has even
designed a Korean War scenario. If you are local to the Capital
District, and are interested in joining us, please let us know.
