We have a couple of changes to our normal Game Day schedule in July, plus I want to share the dates for our upcoming 10th Annual Burning Wreck Barbecue and West Coast Melee XXI.

First, the July Game Days. Emerald Knights has a Magic tournament scheduled for July 15th, the date of our normal Game Day there. Also July 29th is a 5th Saturday. I'm pleased to report that Matt Cicero and Bryan Earll have agreed to open Apex Fasteners on both dates for our use. This is good news indeed. If you haven't been, it is our most popular Game Day venue for good reason. We have our own well-lit room with plenty of table space. And the food options are excellent.

Next, I'm pleased to report that our 10th Annual Burning Wreck Barbecue will be held on October 21st, 2017, and we will once again return to Stance and Cheryl Nixon's house in Long Beach. I see no reason to screw with success, so our format will remain exactly the same as it has been for the last several years. About 6 weeks before the barbecue, I will put a call out for scenario submissions, and we will begin the process of choosing our barbecue scenario. As always, this will be a members only event. But for the small entry fee you'll get a crack at some excellent door prizes, plus complimentary beer and soda throughout the day, and free lunch and dinner as well. Last year we had 22 members in attendance, making it the biggest single-day ASL event in the country. In fact, most multi-day ASL tournaments don't draw as many players as our barbecue.

Finally, I want to announce that, after some intense negotiating by our V.P. Matt Cicero, we will once again return to the Best Western Plus Inn and Suites at Ontario Airport for West Coast Melee XXI, from February 15 through February 18th, 2018. I will fill in more details on West Coast Melee XXI as we get closer. For now, just be sure to mark your calendars. You don't want to miss the premier ASL event in the western U.S.

I have up dated the Club calendar accordingly. Check there for details.I want to take the opportunity to point out some schedule changes coming up on our calendar:
