GZG-ECC 16 - Part the First

Ah well, better late than never. At least I am posting about two weeks earlier than last year! Here it is the highlight of my gaming year – GZG-ECC.  It was once again at the Treadway Inn in Owego NY. This year was number 16 which built on last year’s change of being open to other games than just Ground Zero games.

My traveling partners were once again the father and son team of krimso and Chris. We got a later than usual start as Steve had some morning work commitments he could not get out of. We arrived a little before 6pm, just in time to meet with friends Jeff and Bubba, up from Virginia, for dinner at Las Chicas Taqueria.
Suitably fortified, it was off to our first game at 7pm.

Jeff, Bubba, and I played in “Puma Down”, an African mid-sixties scenario run by The Kinsey. The rules were “I Ain’t Been Shot Mum” by Too Fat Lardies.

Field Trip!: Resintopia 2

Needing a break from the winter doldrums, I got a chance to spend a couple of hours at Resintopia 2. This was my first time at this relatively new show. It is dedicated to garage kits and is located in Fairfield, NJ.

Yowzer! I think this appeared in a recent Amazing Figure Modeler

The show was a three day event and consisted of a vendor area, a model contest, and a series of speakers and workshops.
