BottosCon 2010

BottosCon is a yearly Vancouver - British Columbia area (board) wargaming convention. This year it will take place on Nov 12/13/14 at the Compass Points Hotel in Surrey.

West Coast Rumble, an Advanced Squad Leader tournament held by Lone Canuck Publishing, will be happen in conjunction with BottosCon again this year.

Last year a demonstration Up Front tournament was held. It was successful enough to be included as an official event this year. Trophies will be awarded.

Nov. 12-14th, 2010

Compass Point Inn, 9850 King George Highway, Surrey BC, Canada

The North Shore Wargaming Society is proud to host BottosCon 2010, our fourth annual board gaming convention for all gamers in the Greater Vancouver area and Pacific Northwest.

We will be returning to the Compass Points Inn. The hotel has ample parking, is right on the Sky Train line, and is easily accessible to our friends from Vancouver Island as well as those from south of the border.

The North Shore Wargaming Society is a group of gamers who do not have any political affiliations, do not believe in any discrimination, and only want to enjoy playing historical based war games.

Our focus will be on gaming, not structure, so think GMT West or Homercon, but with a Canadian flair. This is an opportunity to play some great games, whether they be Strategy, War or Euro and make some new friends.

There will be scheduled events as well as open gaming. Open gaming will be subject to space availability and will be on a first come, first served basis.

Pre-registration will begin August 1, 2010. Prices as follows: until August 31/10 $25.00. September 1-30/10 $30.00 At the door $35.00. One Day pass $20.00.

To join group you must provide your full name - no exceptions, and the city you live in, and how you heard about us. **Scam artists not welcome.**

Guys we're 7 weeks away from BottosCon 2010 and I'm hoping this will be our best year yet.

Both the ASL West Coast Rumble as well as the Up Front tournament will be taking place again.

Expect to see lots of great games, and not just wargames. There's a Battlestar Galactica event on Saturday night and it looks like we'll have at least 2 seperate games going. Who will prevail, humanity or the toasters?

In addition to our regular wargames, we'll be joined by Kirby from Board Game Warriors who will host a plethora of fantasy and science fiction boardgames.

Game designers Stephen Newberg, Ian Wier, and Mark Woloshen will be rejoining us and should have some of their latest projects with them.

Other games slated ot make an appearance this year: Refereed Flat Top by Art Brochet, Europe Engulfed, The Fires of Midway, Vimy Ridge, and Normandy '44 and Tac Air.

If you're in the Pacific Northwest I really hope you'll consider attending what is proving to be a fast growing gaming convention.

Come on out this November and play some great games and make some new friends and most importantly, have fun.
