I would like to thank the players/attendees for being polite, friendly and well that just makes my and all of the volunteers job easier! I also would like to thank Hank and Jeff and all of the other staff members (too many to name) for your comraderie, tolerance :P and drinking companionship! A special thanks to Tim for running/organizing the WAB event, I HAD A BLAST :D! Take care all and I hope to see all of you next year.

This was my second Adepticon and it really makes me wish I hadn't cancelled my first planned trip 2 years ago. Adepticon makes GTs look like a garage held RTT. I think the convention aspect is what GW events have been missing. Big props to all the event and volunteer staff, thank you!

I'll just add my voice to the chorus. This was my first Adepticon, and definitely won't be the last. Thank you to everyone who had a hand in putting this together, you did a great job.

Also thanks to the team that travelled from Minnesota, you guys gave me someone to talk Twins baseball and talk trash about the White Sox with.

It was great meeting Ogre finally and hanging out with a lot of other people we don't see much these days. Had a great time!

To Hank, Jeff, and all the guys and girls who made Adepticon 08 the fantastic experience it was, Thank you again.

I only got the smallest view of just how much work the team REALLY puts in to make it a success, and it's a metric-F***-ton of work.

Here's hoping for '09!

Indeed, this years Adepticon topped the last two I went to. Partly because of the great staff, their efforts do not go unnoticed, but also because of all the great players that make this a very enjoyable gaming weekend. As usual, first question after games ended on Saturday was: What do we do for next year?!?

THANK YOU!

Was your son runing 6 drednaughts and a whole lot of marines?




If so, I played him with sisters in the second round of the championchip and he was enjoyable to play and he looked like he had a blast.

Yes, That was him. I hope that the game ran quick and he knew his rules. Tried to impress on him that is very important in this setting. I hope you didn't beat him to bad...

He knew the rules just fine :)

The game ran at a good pace and we had about 30 Mins to spare.


he just has to play for the objective instead of killing the opponent and he would do even better at tournies!

Overall, GG

I would just like to say that I have been going to Adepticon for the past 4 years and I would like to say that this year was the best. Not only did I have blast playing all of the games, but meeting up with my buddies from Appleton, Wi. Our rivals for every Tean Tourney since we met them years ago. Cops vs. Firemen. WE would like to thank them for letting us play them again. I guess it is bragging rights for the following year. Unfortunately, we lost this year.

The gifts this year were incredible. 3 books and 3 bags of goodies. WOW. I am reading the comic now and can't put it down.

So a big Hooray for the organizers for a great time. See ya nect year.
This Bugs For You !!!!!!!!!!!!!
