NICON Queen's Birthday weekend 2004 - Tauranga

Thanks to the Tauranga club for running an excellent convention and for giving us lots of medals and prizes. Andrew's Han Chinese army took him to second place in the 25mm Ancients competition, and Brett's Medieval Germans (pictured below) came in fourth. Kendall won the Best Baggage prize for his 15mm Samurai camp, and although he is too modest to tell you, he also won the Best Sport prize. Rob won third prize in Warhammer using Orcs and Goblins. In the DBR competition second place went to Philip, and Danny who played for only one day of the two-day tournament was still third!

Congratulations also to the City Guard club. They will be hosting Nicon next year here in Auckland.

Below are a couple of pictures from the Tauranga convention.

The Shore does Natcon

Natcon 2004 saw a great weekend, and a huge turnout from North Shore and associates.
Best result was Gerard with 2nd in Moderns, Brett Best Painted DBM, Paul 3rd in DBM 15mm, Glen 3rd in DBM 25mm, Nick 4th in WHFB, Kit 5th in Early War FOW, Rob 6th in Mid War FOW, John, Brett, Alastair, Phil and Stuart occupying mid tables in their DBM comps, and Kyle also turning out in WHFB. So we had 13 club members or very close affiliates down there, great turnout by the North Shore club.
