So due to real life not allowing for people have have fun....we are going to reschedule War of the Gate to June of 2013.

There is an event in Oregon that uses the same initials for their event, WoG....so we will also be revamping the name as well. It will be known as War in the North...also known as WiN (which amuses me terribly)

Anyone that was planning on making it to the event has my apologies for having to reschedule it but we hope to see you here in June all the same!

And leave it Galya to remember all dates and numbers. Or at least be unlazy enough to search for the previous years numbers. :)

*shrug* I just checked the Event Listing. Last year was War of the Gate V. It's pretty simple, I think people just forget that thing is there.

I'll try and make it. It's in Montana you say? That's a little far from me, but, I'll try my hardest. I think I know some folks out there.

I will stab you in the eye...with toast....if you don't show up, Hakan.



For those of you curious about the group site we found, here is some more info:

Overview

Natural Features:

The campground sits at a fairly low elevation in the Bass Creek Recreation Area between Missoula and Hamilton. It is situated west of the Lee Metcalf National Wildlife Refuge, in an area forested with pine, spruce and fir trees.

A variety of wildlife, including mule and white-tailed deer, elk, moose and birds can often be seen in the area.
Recreation:

A variety of hiking and mountain biking trails are nearby, including a half-mile nature trail that highlights some the area's best features. The 9-mile Bass Creek Trail is located just south of the campground and leads to a scenic overlook and many fishing holes.

Bass Lake, Bass Creek and numerous additional mountain streams make the campground a very popular location for fishing.

An interpretive trail, fitness trail and volleyball court are located within the campground.

If for some awesome reason there are more than 10 cars, there is a parking area a mile down the road that I could talk to the rangers about us using for the weekend.

I'm fairly sure your husband could convince me to not only show up but work my * off. I'm even convinced it wouldn't be that hard he could just say "Do it" and I'd be like "yeah a'right"

Pics of the site!!! I apologize that the pics are not super great quality but all I had was my cell phone.

central fire (I love this spot)

the camp ground is nestled at the foot of these mountains

This camp ground is just awesome! There are hiking and horse trails all over the place. It is pet friendly with a little creek right next to the camp site. There is a bigger creek just about 3 minutes away where you can fish. Stores and other amenities are within a few minutes drive as well. Aside from the campground being incredible....the event will be awesome as well ;)

If my memory is serving me correctly I believe I have a trip planned for that weekend to Vegas to do a demo at a convention to help out the local group boost its numbers. If things change I will let you know.

That happened to McGee last year. And it was an ANGRY bear. In the bear's defense, it was McGee's fault the bear got angry. :P

That sadly will lead you to an address that is NOT the campground. I had the same problem this year with WoF. Here is a site and directions to the camp proper.
http://visitmt.com/listing/categories_N ... ordID=6917
Travel 5 miles north of Stevensville, then 3 miles northwest of US Highway 93. Camp area is located 1 mile north of the Charles Waters Campground.

I'll be running POGS at WoG this year. The only POG tournament in Belegarth. If you got 'em, bring up, but I'll make sure to have plenty on hand. And we play for keeps :D

General breakdown of the schedule

Saturday: 3 man tourney, Dragon Battle, Sword and Board Tourney, Mongolian wrestling at night in the sand pit (bring it :goblin: )

Sunday: Single blue tourney, Archery tourney, Oracle Battle and feast

Monday: clean up and go home

Troll will open at 9am and run till 3pm and then be open as needed after that.
