Post by urbanbunny1 » Tue Oct 24, 2017 7:24 pm

Will FoGR be running at Badcon 2018?

Also, have any dates been set for Badcon?

Also, given what happened at Devizes earlier this year, should we maybe look at a "big singles armies" event, rather than doubles?

This would seem sensible to me.

As I am not actually that fond of playing as part of a doubles team, would there be any objection to playing solo? (And stumping up the full team price of course)

Cheque :shock: :shock: :shock:

Well that won't happen. Anyone any idea if they take payment in other ways? PayPal'd be good.

Nik,

If you ask him very nicely he might accept payment on the day or you could give him the money at Warfare where he will be a trader with Wayne.

Hi Folks,

Sorry for the delay in answering your questions about Badcon. Yes you can enter as a single player team and pay the full team fee of £34. Payment is by cheque or as Bob said I will be trading (Instant Armies) at Warfare next weekend and will accept cash from anyone who wants to hand it over.

regards Dene

So, if I enter as a single player, can I argue with myself?

Does that constitute self-abuse?
