    @coachofmany:

    We are finalizing our dates and Hotel and have it narrowed to 2 Hotels and 3 weekends of May of 2014 in Tulsa, OK
    Please vote for the 2 weekends that will best work for you.
    This will help make our decision but not be a absolute depending on the polling.
    Thank you.
    Coach

    Any weekend works good for me so long as I got notice!  I’m in FOR SURE!  Quick drive from Houston, and I’ll have a plus one join me from Dallas at least.

    AWESOME!

    Wish it was a little later in the summer, but I will try to be there if I can. Hard to project that far ahead. Especially living in Ohio.

    I do not want to compete against Origins, Historicon, and Gencon.
    Hope you can make it!

    A wise choice then. Hope I can too. Thanks Coach.

    One of the Hotels I am looking at offers free Breakfast Buffet.
    Now will you come?  😄

    Free food… gets me every time. As long as they have a waffle maker.  😉

    Man you folks remind me of some kind of carpet baggers….free breakfast and you show up. 😄


  • Sponsor 2017 TripleA '11 '10

    I voted for the two that are not Memorial Day Weekend. I’ll tell you why:

    If it were just me and my friend Coach playing, Memorial Day would work great. But I know many of you have family and friends that will expect you to host a BBQ or go to a BBQ or take that trip with your loving wife etc. I fear that Memorial Day Weekend will result in a lot of cancellations…



  • I’m pretty new to the A&A forums here, and I’m not an active A&A player (been away from it for several years), but this sounds like a fun gathering.  I’m in Wichita, so Tulsa’s a easy drive for me.  I hope I can make it!

    I voted for the two weekends that are NOT Memorial Day weekend on account of the significance of Memorial Day itself.  My home town hosts a very respectful Memorial Day service that honors the local veterans, both living and deceased.  My dad, who served in the Navy in WWII, is now buried in that hometown cemetery.  I’ve always attended the services there.  This year I started helping with the parade of flags that are flown for the veterans buried there, a tradition I’m pretty likely to continue.

    Coach,

    ––While I’m 95% certain that I’ll attend at this point I still can’t guarantee that. However I’m definitely planning on attending if it’s at all possible for me to do so.
    ----Also, IMHO I think it would be better to hold your convention on either week-end OTHER THAN memorial day week-end as many people have other events or family obligations then.
    ––I look forward to enjoying a game of Axis & Allies with/against you using all of my detailed/painted units,…many of which were produced by Historical Board Gaming. It would be their combat debut and I can think of no better venue to “blood” them than your gaming convention. I hope it’s only the first in a long line of annual “wars” that we enjoy in Oklahoma. 😄

    Ok, am I looking at my calendar wrong? The dates you posted are for the WEEKENDS of May 2014, correct? Unless the calendar is wrong on my tablet, those dates don’t coincide with the weekend dates.


  • Sponsor 2017 TripleA '11 '10

    Sorry for the confusion at the top. Looking like the 'Con will be May 16 - 18, 2014. No competing 'cons that way. Looks like Coach had his calendar set wrong.


  • 2018 2017 2016 2015 Customizer

    I can make it on that Sunday, May 18th. What time would the convention open each day and close?

    ––Maybe we can team up and go. It would probably save me some gas and make it more FUN for the both of us, too. Or at least meet up whenever we get there. Give me a call.

  • Go, and become a regular at the event…My step daughter graduates around the 14th and thats in Missouri, not too far but  my wife she would probably kill me…ya never know until you find out


  • 2018 2017 2016 2015 Customizer

    We definitely need to plan for this one! 🙂


  • Sponsor 2017 TripleA '11 '10

    It would be great to have you guys there! Heck, I gotta come from California! No whining from those between the Rockies and the Mississippi River…  😄 😄 😄


  • 2018 2017 2016 2015 Customizer

    I talked to Tall Paul on the phone yesterday, and are going to meet each other for the first time Friday. We are going to discuss about when we can meet to play some axis and allies and possibly ride to the convention in May. I can’t wait to meet you guys. I’ve bought a lot of stuff from HBG this month and looking forward to possibly gaming with all of you at the convention. 😄

    ––I feel certain that you’ll be TOTALLY SATISFIED with any/all purchases that you make from HBG. Doug will make sure that you are happy. I, like everyone else that have ever had any dealings with HBG, are loyal “fans” of
    "The Big Green H", and it leader, General Doug!

    Yes, Doug is a good guy. I talked to him on the phone a couple of times. He hurt his Achilles tendon. I hope he recovers from it real soon.  Some how my stuff got sent to Maryland, and he reshipped everything. Now I just purchased my biggest order from him last week and bought the Global 1939 variant map. Now, I’m just waiting for the supplement set to restock which he says they may have in a couple of weeks. I should be getting my map tomorrow. I’m so excited about it. I can’t wait to play it. Doug has a lot of cool products. I’ve been pleased with all my stuff, I’ve bought from him. I can’t wait to meet him in person at the convention. 😄

    Can I put this quote on our Kickstarter page?  😄

    He’s the tall one… 😉

    Cool! That is good to know. 😄

    Guys,

    @Variable:

    He’s the tall one… 😉

    ––Cool,….sounds like I might look up to him literally as well as figuratively. Actually I’m the shortest in my family approx. 6’-4". My Dad is still 3" or so taller than me,….although he’s a bit stooped over now that he’s 89 years old.

    ----Variable, I don’t know if you were talking to me about the quote or not but you certainly have my permission,…and best wishes.
