to the third Recon mini-con which features dedicated play of Advanced
Squad Leader in five rounds of swiss-elimination format.

status in your future? Send out a patrol to Recon for an early
start to your gaming Campaign week.
attendees have long lamented the many conflicts between their favorite
WBC events. So many games, so little time…No event
has been harder hit by the urge to experience more of WBC than ASL—once
the undisputed king of Avaloncon with fields regularly drawing
in triple digits. In recent years, those ranks have dropped precipitately
so with encouragement from the good folks at Multi-man Publications,
we’ve decided to lure some of the faithful back by scheduling ASL the
weekend before WBC so you can still lead squads for three days
without missing all the other enticements that WBC has to offer

With play in a Pre-Con, those making the pilgrimmage to WBC can
get more bang for their travel buck while increasing the number
of events they can play during a glorious nine day stint of uninterrupted
gaming if they so choose. Valhalla for gamers…here on Earth
and only at WBC.
