How to Pre-Register for Privateer Events at Cold Wars
Once you have pre-registered for a badge with Cold Wars, please email with the confirmation number along with which events you plan on attending (Jacks 'n Beasts or Steamroller). All we need is proof that a badge has been purchased, so we can lock you in a spot to the tournament. NOTE: PLEASE REMOVE ANY FINANCIAL INFORMATION from the email.
Also, I will register you for a Keystone Gamers account (link) and assign you to a Cold Wars group. This will make it easier to send out reminders and updates should they occur. Email, if you have any problems.
Jacks 'n Beasts: We have faction patches for those folks that place top place in their faction.
Steamroller: Although we will be using the Steamroller 2010 rules, the coins are from the old kit.
Demo Raffles: Several items are floating around. To be continued...
Middle Atlantic Team Tournament to be held on October 9th, 2010
The first Middle Atlantic Team Tournament (MATT) will be held in Media, PA on October 9th.
Each store or club within 2-3 hours driving distance will form teams of 3 players whose wins are counted together for the overall win of a team traveling trophy. If you have an odd number coming (say 4 or 5) members outside a 3-man team can still play but their points don't get added towards the team tournament prize. 
Individual players still vie to win 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, so there is plenty of reason for everyone to come and play.
