Hello All,

It is with great pleasure I announce a Ranked, 50ss Gaining Ground Tournament being held on June 6th in Watertown, MA.

A Fistful of Soulstones

This event will follow the 2015 GG rules in all regards but one; it will be strictly three (3) rounds long, regardless of the number of participant.

-"Fistful" will require painted models, per the GG rules.
-Schemes will be randomly generated and provided to players just prior to Round starts.
-DorkaMorka will continue to use a "loaded raffle" style prize support.
-The Event is capped at 32 players. So please preregister. A Waiting List will be established if/when we max out!
-The venue is a private function hall. Alcohol is served on premise, therefore events are 21+.

It is with great sadness that I have to cancel Fistful of Soulstones.

The reason is very simple, the venue does not have AC and with the recent heat wave and lack of opportunity to cool the hall down, it would be a very, very uncomfortable day spent in the Hall.

I waited as long as possible and it looked like Mother Nature would allow this event to happen, but a spike in heat for Thursday, Friday and Saturday makes me worried that people would be miserable at best.

To be honest, the hall that has no AC and very, very poor air flow would end up being mid 90's in temp. Too hot to be comfortable.

I am sorry that this took place, it was risky when I planned the event... my apologizes.

For the pre-registered you of course will get your money back. Please bear with me a day or two, I am not in control of the club's Paypal account, but the gentleman who is will see to the refunds ASAP.

Heads up Dorkites that we've got an alternative worked out.

Manny whom some of you have met at previous events is gonna jump in and host a tournament Saturday the 6th for all those looking forward to Fistful. All the same stuff applies as for Fistful.

It sucks that it was cancelled but it was scorching in there Thursday and probably a good move. Thank you Ian for organizing it in the first place.

Tabletop is a good space and they stock tons of Malifaux, so free Johanna's for everyone! Man, it is great to be part of a gaming community that steps up and helps each other when things don't work out.
