Just a quick heads up that the PEL and Table Layout files on the Southern Front site have been updated. Click on the Southern Front tab at the top of the site to get to the convention’s main page. The PEL and Table Layout are linked in a table on that page.
UPDATED PEL and UPDATED TABLE LAYOUT
Also, here is a note from the game Scheduler Peter Hume –
” Southern Front is weeks away now, and the schedule of games is filling out nicely. There are multiple people who have said they wanted to run a game and i’m waiting on their submissions (nudge, cajole, prod, smile). There is still space available. Friday afternoon and Sunday are WIDE open. Other times there is still availability..especially as a few of the GMs have said they would move to another day or time to accommodate. So hurry up and send in your submissions.
The Eighteenth Century on is pretty well covered (apart from British Colonial…can never have too much of that pip pip, and Naval). A bit of a gap before that point…if anyone fancied running an earlier period…would add to the diversity.
GMs who have already submitted a game, please check the PEL to make sure your game is listed and is accurate. If there is an error please send an email back to me at peterhume3562 AT gmail DOT com so I can correct.”

I believe Bruce will be running a WWII Panzer Marsch! game, and Ed will be running a 28mm Napoleonic game.

Here is a slideshow of photos from the Barrage 2015 game day, helmed by our TSS member Bruce Schaper. Thanks Bruce for both arranging the game day with Game Theory of Raleigh, but also for GM’ing! Also a thank you to David Minser for putting on a really nice Goblins and Trolls vs Dwarvish scum match. And yes, I was on the goblin side if you can’t tell : ) It was a really nice setup. Of course Bruce, your Vietnam helo game is spectacular looking as well. David and I had about four different groups of people come up after you all left for lunch asking about the setup and the rules used. NOTE: If you click on any of the photos while the slideshow is running you will be taken over to the full size images in the picasaweb album.

Hello fellow wargamers. We have been provided the code for the Holiday Inn for a reduced room rate during the Southern Front 2015 weekend. The code is “TSS”. We’ve added the information to the Southern Front web page. You should be able to call the hotel directly and use that code, or use a web based link that was recently provided. In checking the rate by walking through the process, it showed up as $89 per night for a single or double occupancy room (same price showed up for either option).
Just a quick word of thanks to all attendees, GMs, and dealers for helping make Southern Front 2014 a success. A particularly hardy thank you to all the folks that traveled far and wide to be with us this year! We hope you enjoyed your stay and the convention. A flyer for next year’s Southern Front 2015 has already been created. That flyer can be downloaded here.

Once more gallery links are sent to us directly or via the TSS Yahoo Group we’ll add links to more Southern Front photos. Above was just one of my quick and not so non-blurry shots using an iPhone.
