grand strategy on a titanic scale
This years Elchfest
saw 47 flickers attending. The room was larger and handled the
crowd with no problems. The 11 PM start time was met with
general approval although next year I'd like to add a Juniors
event to start cultivating the youth movement.
The battle for the most coveted plaque at WBC was a fierce
one as there were three defending champions looking to reclaim
the amtler wood as well as several talented newcomers.
Last years champion fell in the second round (much to the
dismay of his Team Event teammates) to the eventual winner Bob
"The Machine" Runnicles. Bob didn't lose a game in
the entire event playing the minimum ten games over five rounds
in clinching his second ELCHFEST title.
Former champion Jeff Paull, also aiming to reclaim past glory,
was his opponent in the Final but was unable to slow the Runnicles
tide as Bob was not to be denied.
Many of the entrants were able to purchase a copy of the game
this year and that bodes well for next years event. The level
of play was much better and sights are set on the champ already.
Will one of the former champions reclaim the antlers or will
a talented newcomer finally crack the top spot?
No moose were hurt in the making of this event ... which is
more than can be said for the participants.
