First off Happy New Year to all!
Just an early bird reminder that Cold Steel, the next Triangle Simulation Society game day will be held at Gamer’s Armory in Cary, NC, on Saturday February 11th. Two games will be run at approximately 11AM. And two additional games at 3PM. For more information, get in touch with Bruce Schaper on the TSS Yahoo Mailing list:
We are sorry several folks were unable to attend due to the incoming hurricane Mathew! We hope to see everyone next year! Many many thanks to everyone that were able to break through and attend. Also many thanks to all attendees that gave patronage to the hotel restaurant and bar room as that will absolutely help keep the overall costs down as we move forwards. I will be re-vamping the entire TSS website in the coming two months here, including a new game scheduling system (up to and including pre event signing up for game slots). We’ll see how many bells and whistles I can get into it, but I do plan on it being very easy to use but powerful in its ability to pre-show everyone the PEL and table assignments much easier than in cons past. More on that after I code it for a month+ here.
A couple initial galleries are over here on the Historical Miniatures community of G+ –

Southern Front 2016 is a go! Below is a newer banner image for the event which I have additionally added to the Southern Front site proper. I’ve NOT yet activated the registration links as I still need to update a few things behind the scenes but those should be active witihin a few weeks. I’ll post news here and on the TSS Yahoo list when the links are all active. This is the same hotel from last year, it just goes by a slightly updated name now. It is now known as Holiday Inn Raleigh North – Midtown and its address is 2805 Highwoods Boulevard Raleigh, NC 27604.
A Quick note from Bruce regarding Cold Steel 2016 game day –
We have two tables reserved for us on Saturday February 13 at GAME THEORY. The venue in Cary didn’t work out this time, he’s got a lot of stuff scheduled. Same format as the other game days.
Two games start at 12 pm.
Two games start at 400 pm
Amazingly, this will be our THIRD year for Cold Steel.
For GM’s thinking about putting something on: Table size is not a problem 6×8 footers.
The time is a bit of concern, so structure your game, so you don’t have to drag out your entire horde.
this makes set up and put up efficient.
Three hours of play time has been working out good. Players are still fresh for the second round.
The date is actually advantageous this year too. It’s a no brainer what to ask for Valentines -go play a game.”
