Recon Pre-Con
Dec. 21, 2005

ASL Before WBC
Sat., July 29 through Mon., July 31, 2006
Lancaster Host, Lancaster, PA

Welcome to the third Recon mini-con which features dedicated play of Advanced Squad Leader in five rounds of swiss-elimination format. Not actually part of WBC proper, Recon is sort of an opening skirmish for those who can’t get enough of a good thing. Is Centurion status in your future? Send out a patrol to Recon for an early start to your gaming Campaign week.

WBC 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 later in the week…thus putting to the test the often espoused theory that those ASL players are still at WBC…they’re just playing something less time intensive so they can sample more games.

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.

NEW FOR 2006: Tribune level members may freely partake in any and all of BPA’s six Pre-Cons during the three days preceding WBC. Get the details on our membership page.

Play at Recon for non-Tribune/Sponsor level members requires a separate registration fee of $30 for BPA members pre-registered by July 22, 2006, or $40 for all others, payable to the BPA, 1541 Redfield Rd, Bel Air, MD 21015. This fee can be paid separately or in addition to other WBC fees noted on the WBC pre-registration form.

WBC special room rates at the Lancaster Host apply to all days of the pre-con. See our travel and accommodations page for details.

More event details available in April.
