I'm looking forward to running a Vikings invading Ireland scenario Friday morning. A lot of effort went into balancing out what is a tough match-up for the Irish in a straight tournament game. Here are some teaser shots --

There will also be two other Impetus games run, each by a different group. So three groups are running games this year. There will be a game of Adrianople, and one set in Japan.
I'm runninng an Impetus Open Saturday night, and continuing open gaming Sunday. I reserved space for the Open Saturday evening from 6 pm until 2 am. Several friends have commented on the hours, so I want to clarify this.
These open gaming times are to encourage regional players to meet each other and have fun gaming some small games. The Saturday Open will include awards for the best painted army and the best player. These awards will be presented between 10:30 and 11. I trust a couple of games will have been played by everyone interested by then.
I reserved this time so that interested people could play until they closed the doors on 'em. There was never any intention that you had to play the entire 8 hours!! But for the die-hard enthusiasts, you can.

I'm looking forward to Little Wars, which is the regional gamers mixer. There will be friends from all over the region there, and I'm sure that I will make new friends this year.
