BeakyCon * Florida 40k GT * Oct. 29-30 * Marriott Hotel at the the Tampa Airport
Today we are announcing the new 40k GT, BeakyCon, that will be held on October 29 - 30 at the Marriott Hotel in the Tampa airport. If you are coming from outside the state of Florida you can fly in and never have to set foot outside the airport. The Marriott also has it's own parking garage if you want to drive. We will have some hot coffee to start off each day.
40k GT, Our System, Awards
The main event is the 40k GT (2000 points) which will run over both days and we are also planning to run a 40k Combat Patrol event as well. The format for the GT is based on the NOVA and WargamesCon competition systems; that is, there will be enough rounds played to determine the best general based upon their overall score for objectives gained each round. You will have the opportunity to play both days in the GT - there will one award for the overall best general (Warmaster) and another for second place. There will also be awards for Best Sportsmanship, Best Army and a Player's Choice award as well.
Our main sponsors are Games Workshop and Anthem Games (right out of Tampa) plus we are looking for some vendor support from great gaming companies such as Battlefoam.
Registration and E-Memos
General registration for the public should open next month and we will be sending monthly e-memos to keep you abreast of the latest details.
An official website for BeakyCon is currently under construction and should be ready to go public in approximately one month.
We hope to see you there!
