Pics from MCon

Apologies all around. I didn't actually take any pictures, and though I got these from my helper Ray, I have had some family issues taking up my time. I hope you enjoy these.

Hi Ed,
Thank you for even more good memories and to use an ol' Beach Boys lyric, "good vibrations." I appreciate you doing all that you did and hope your family circumstances turn out for the good. I'm very glad I attended.
Sincerely and respectfully yours,
Bill

Ed,

I'm seeing nothing but an empty white rectangle in your post. Is there supposed to be something there besides the brief paragraph?

Jim,

Yes, there is a slide show from Picassa. Did you try clicking on it?

Nicely Done Ed.
This was well organized, you were decisive in your decision making throughtout the game and fun was had by all. I too am very glad that I came down and now cannot wait until the next such extravaganza. I will have more units painted by then and hopefully more buildings.

Really good. Thanks,

Chris

Thanks Chris. My main intent on any such endeavor is for the participants have fun, whether win, lose, or draw.

As near as I could tell, everyone did.

It was nice meeting you, and while I don't plan on staging a big scrum next year, I wouldn't be averse to joining one!

Ed,

I finally was able to see the slide show on my home computer. One small correction, the picture titled "Carpanians Advance" is really the Prussian infantry commanded by Chris Bump. But otherwise a nice reminder of the great time I had playing in the game.

Thank you once again!

Jim
