BOUNTY HUNTERS RELEASE EVENT SATURDAY THE 30th OF SEPTEMBER 2006 Please see below details of an upcoming Star Wars Miniature event from the Midlands Premier Event Level Tournament Organiser for Stafford and Birmingham 'Steve Avann' who has run DCI sanctioned events for Magic the Gathering at Stafford and Birmingham for over eight years. Until now he has run Magic CCG events exclusively but now is branching out into organising miniatures events, starting with a Release event for the Bounty Hunters expansion for the Star Wars Miniatures Game at my Stafford venue. This event in collaboration with Tritex Games http://www.tritex-games.co.uk/ is the first event where he will be running Miniatures as an organised play event. he also intends offer another miniatures event with the next D&D miniatures release later in the year [details TBC]. The aim of this event is to start to give miniatures players the chance to participate in the same large scale release events that Magic players have enjoyed for years. If you have an interest in attending this event as either a fan of Star Wars or of miniatures in general then please come along for what ought to be a great day out. With continued player support we hope that minis events will become a part of our organised events for years to come. I hope that we can bring to the Miniatures players the wealth of experience in organising quality, fun events that our Magic players have come to expect. Steves events team includes two DCI approved Judges and Steve is a sanctioned events co-ordinator. I?d like to invite anyone who can attend to come along to Stafford venue on Saturday the 30th of September to participate in what I hope will be the first of many Miniatures events. If you don?t want to take part but are curious to see what happens at a sanctioned event, then please come along on the day and watch. There will be plenty of space for spectators and there is no cost to do so. In fact, the more people at the event the merrier! Come along to play, to watch, to trade, to shop. I?m sure that you?ll have a great time. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via e-mail or Steve Avann on his e-mail which is detailed at the bottom of this message. Once again, thanks for reading and we look forward to seeing you at the event.
