Okay, where can we hold Armistice Day this year? Based on space, my suggestions are:
1) Morgans house
3) Skinner's (we can move a table into our library for a bit more space)
Any takers? I don't think I have as much room, but I'll be happy to host just the same. Haven't been to the Morgans in a while.
Secondly, the following people are eligible for the championship this year (having either won a previous title or gamed at an Indy Squadron gaming day in 2011):
- All previous winners
- Ethan Skinner
- Stephen Dale Skinner
- Rick Lacy
- Jim Barber
- Garrett Richeson
Unfortunately, looking over ISD's archives, I can't find where the Morgans played in an Indy Squadron game this year. I know they were at Gen Con Warm Up gaming, but that is not an Indy event. Either way, they are still eligible for the tourney title, if not the Victory Medal. We just gotta get them back to the table... for any game at all!
Of course, anyone can compete for the tourney title but I cannot find anyone else who is eligible for the Victory Medal and the squadron championship this year.
I expect Jim Barber will be in town for the event. We're also trying to get George Henion involved if we can work with his schedule for the day.
Remember, HOLD NOVEMBER 12 ON YOUR CALENDAR for the Armistice Day Fits Tournament! See you there!

Congratulations to Ethan, who worked for nearly two weeks to perfect his game so he could play in the Armistice Day tournament... and win!
Thoughts on the 2011 title game:
- I'm glad we increased the ammo capacity from 18 rounds (what I was going to originally suggest) to 20 rounds at Rick's behest. Don't think I would want any more, but it was a good move. 20 rounds wasn't too much ammo after all.
- Glad to have Jim Barber competing for the title. He entirely satisfied all eligibility requirements and had he won, I'd have been completely satisfied that the Victory Medal landed in the hands of a deserving player.
- George lent a great deal to this year's ADFT. His experience meant so much to the game, and his blocking move while shooting down Rick will go down as one of the great maneuvers in ADFT history. In football he was what we call an "impact player."
- Where were the Richesons and Morgans? Really missed them this year. The event is not the same without their enthusiasm.
- Dory played well. For a long time she slipped into this "once a year" playing mode and wasn't really prepared to compete. But this year she had her game face on and was a threat all night. She finished a strong third.
