Clockwork Dragon’s Cans Pt 2 – The Results

PG Pure Mongrel is back to fill us in on the results of the Foodmachine event held recently at the Clockwork Dragon in Geelong. He wrote many words. You might enjoy them.

dragonG’day again from the land filled with so many dangerous animals, the sea felt compelled to girt it.

In my last post I outlined the methods used to generate donations for our Foodmachine event. This post is how the event went down.

 

Before I get to that though I need to give a few shout outs:

  • Chris, Jason, Trent, James, Shoshie, Meg, Aidan, Jay, Trevor, Tim, Will and the lads at GUF; thank you again for your support. Without you guys there is no possible way we could have smashed out as many cans as we did.
  • Gerrard, terrain builder extraordinaire. Some how this man worked more hours per day than 24, helped take care of twin babies and some how managed to bend time to his will long enough to build some very unique terrain for our event. (See below). I would be remiss to not mention his wife Holly for her support (e.g. not killing me and him) for eating up all his spare time.

  • David for being the judge on the day. His ability to check off army lists is super human and his ability to recall and apply the rules is inhuman. Without him, wrong calls could well have been the order of the day.
  • Gary, Dale, Leanne and my War-Gamer Widow wife Deb. Pro tip; If you are going to run a 40 player event, try not to do it with a bacterial lung infection and delirious with fever. These four some how made sense of my delusional ramblings, and interpretive dance, all while keeping the admin side of the event running like clockwork (pun intended).
  • Leigh, Nathan and Jon from the Geelong Gamers Guild for the venue and canteen support.

Each and every one of you is a champion. I cannot thank you enough.

Now to the event…

The Clockwork Dragon is an 8 team, 40 player, 35 point, second list optional, SR2015 event (with our twist). It started as a way to bring four remote metas together and share the joy of Warmahordes … now, in it’s own way, it has become a family event.

Though based in Geelong it includes players from, Altona (65km away), Ballarat (100km away), Ararat / Bendigo (200km away) and as far away as Canberra (725km away). Needless to say, players travel that far for a single day event because of the freaking awesome community atmosphere.
