Post NOVA Open and Break

Hey Everyone. I wanted to give a quick thanks to everyone who came out to play at the NOVA Open events over the past week. I couldn’t have done with without the wonderful support staff behind me who all made everything smooth and easy.  I also want to give a big thank you to everyone who played as the entire room was full of positive energy the entire time and it was all of you who made the event relaxed and very enjoyable (and yes I felt a bit overwhelmed when everyone applauded after the final rounds Dice down was called thank you all from the bottom of my heart). I had multiple people walk into the room over the event days and comment on how great everyone’s attitude was at the table and how excited the room was because of all of you.

I do want to apologize for the issue at the very end with the award mix up for the GT. BCP had an error, but I take full responsibility and I apologize for the stress and confusion it caused for everyone. I do want to applaud everyone during this confusion, everyone handled my error with a great deal of respect and I had some long talks with a few of you that I greatly appreciate. I promise to all of you that I am working to ensure this will not happen again. You all showed me great respect by returning and trusting in me and my team to provide a great event and I failed at a critical moment, but lessons learned and I hope you all return next year and continue offering me your respect and trust. We are already planning for many more tables and to provide everyone a solid and great experience next year from beginning to end.

Also, I did forget to announce that the ITC submission vote this year was 77 – Yes, 20 – I do not care either way and 0 – No. Going to give the final standings a final look this week, ensure all corrections are in there and handle any last bit of resolution personally before submitting the scores to ITC. Also, with two years of overwhelming Yes votes, you can expect the NOVA AoS GT results to be submitted to ITC going forward.

Also as a quick heads up. I plan on taking a break from Social Media and the Blog for a short while to decompress.  See you all after my break.

Thank you, everyone.  Happy Hobbying!
