GCC Newsletter - October 2019

Coordinator's Corner

Walt has indicated that he plans on having an ADLG event at his house the last weekend in October in Covington, LA. As of yet he has not sent any information in so at this time their is no sanctioned event in September.


You will find the specifics for Hilton's Annual Biblical Tournament in December later in this newsletter. Links are also included for the final round by round results for HUBCON's FOG Average Joe and HUBCON's Late Medieval ADLG Tournaments. The first rankings in this year's GCC race are also in this month's issue.


This month's background is for a new campaign I am finishing up called "Broken Rays of the Sun." Details can be found on the campaign page on my blog at Broken Rays of the Sun.


Please make sure to send your announcements and tournament results to me at shadypage@att.net for inclusion in the GCC circuit. If you have anything you would like to see added/included in the newsletter send me an email and I will see what I can do. Otherwise, you guys are at my mercy and whims. Until next month.
