I just received confirmation from the organizers at NashCon 2012 thatI have been approved to run an A Call To Arms: Star Fleet tournament there. In addition, I would like to schedule one or two non-tourney games and/or a new comers demo session.

There are six 4 hour gaming sessions alotted for the weekend:
Friday - 1pm to 5pm & 7pm to midnight
Saturday - 8am to Noon,1pm to 5pm & 7pm to midnight
Sunday - 8am to Noon

two 1,000 points games per player should theoretically be completed in a single, 4-hour session.

With the space alloted, I can set-up three 4x4 maps at the same time.
The big question is how many people are interested in attending?

Registration is $30 for the entire three days and the the hotel has a special Nashcon rate ($109 per night, including two breakfast buffets per night). You can not get this special online, you have to call the hotel's registration desk at (615) 261-6100 and ask for the Nashcon deal.

Assuming that I have my fleet boxes by then, I should have a sizable range of minis that will be available for use during the tournament to round-out points (or even provide fleets) for those interested in participating. Hopefully, either ADB or Mongoose can be persuaded to provide a bit of convention supprt as well. Wink

got the basic event list submitted and approved:

Friday, May 25th Session One: 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
A Call to Arms: Star Fleet
The Battle for Kh'rtis Rock

As the Klingon assault on UFP territory slowed to a crawl, the Federation sought ways to turn the tide.
In this scenario, the Federation launches a massive sneak attack on the Klingon repair depot located at Kh'rtis Rock. Can the Federation forces prevail against the unprepared Klingon Battle Station, or will the weakened but numerically superior Klingon fleet triumph? Join us as over 60 starships fight it out.
This game is open to all players of any experience level.
Due to the size of this battle, it will run through both sessions on Friday night.
Battlegroup Murfreesboro will provide the maps, the terrain, the miniatures, and the reference cards needed to play. All participants need to bring is a desire to blow up the enemy and to have fun while doing so.

Friday, May 25th Session Two: 7:00 p.m. to 12:00 p.m.

King of the World

The until recently unremarkable world, Nyleve has suddenly exploded onto the galactic radar screens. The remains of a technologically advanced civilization has been found in deep cavern. Overnight it seems that every government wants a piece of the action. Fleets from all over the galaxy are racing to the scene, but not everyone has the same goals in mind.
With randomly selected victory conditions, you never know how close the other guy is to winning.
With room for up to 8 players, this scenario is open to races of all experience levels.
Battlegroup Murfreesboro will provide the maps and the terrain.. All participants will need to bring 300 points worth of miniatures for their own force.

Hope to see you there Cool
