The Bitter Ender is approaching fast. Tournament starts on Thursday, April 27th and ends Sunday, April 30th, 2017.

Room rate is $79. It is best to call when booking your reservations. Please inform hotel staff you are with the Bitter Enders to get the preferred rate.

RAMADA RALEIGH
1520 BLUE RIDGE RD
RALEIGH, NC 27607
p 919.832.4100
F 919.828.1796

The playlist is in progress. With release of Yanks it will be heavy on American scenarios.

The flyer should be ready by Winter Offensive. Locke Monroe A-TD will be attending. I'm not sure if I'm going yet. I'll distribute the flyer via email, Gamesquad post, and Facebook post, after W.O. It will have all tournament and payment information.

If you are flying in one of the TDs can pick you up and drop you off at RDU. The hotel is about 10 minutes drive from the airport. Also, Raleigh has Uber. The cost should be minimal. I would advise against a taxi.

Thursday is open gaming.

Remember that the Grognard main event starts Friday at 08:00 and is limited to 32 players. The first 24 eliminated have spots reserved in the Saturday Minis. YOU CANNOT register for Minis without participating in the Grognard. I can put you on standby in case a player eliminated from the Grognard does not want to play in the Mini for whatever reason but don't count on that.

regards,

Doug

>Payment Pending:

I love it. Publicly shaming dead beats like Dober and parasites like Blanton. ;)

I wanna start doing that too.

If only we billed before we shipped preorders. ;)

Or accepted registration without payment.

Wish I could be there.

I wish you could be there too Perry. My burden for making rules judgments would be significantly decreased :cool:

I did not mean to publicly shame anyone [EXC: Dober]. Just wanted to provide information.

So is the tounrmanet full? I'd like to attend this year.
Hi Ken. As of today the Grognard Main Event has 32 players on 1 alternate, 1 tentative alternate. However, we have a number of players attending for Open Gaming. Player eliminated from 1st and 3rd rounds of Grognard and 1st rounds of Mini also play open games.

Usually, but not always, I have a 1-3 late drops which opens these spots in the Grognard.

Message me your private email and I'll add you to the tournament distribution list.

Heads up. For some reason I failed to book at the Ramada which is now sold out and had to find alternative lodgings over by the Crabtree Mall.

Will we get pairings before Ye Grande Openinge Day ?
No. I never know who will show up and who won't even if they confirm. If someone drops late and I use an alternate to replace them changes the seeds. Pairings will be done once all Grognard participants check in. That is usually Thursday afternoon.
