     It would appear that we are closing in on the end of 2013, which can only mean one thing.........it's time for the year end newsletter and news for LCON 7!!!!!!!!!!!
     LCON 6 was HUGE!!!! A massive amount of gaming, friends and loads of FUN. All the games seemed to be a bunch of fun even though one game was a bit overcrowded and caused the GM to later seek professional help and one seemed to fall a little short of the mark, but over all a huge success. Nothing like sitting around a table sounding like cavemen, shooting friends, killing zombies, bringing about war and saving everyone you can. The great prizes donated this year were more than we ever expected to see at our tiny con, thank you so much to our gracious benefactor. Congratulations again go out to both John and Will, our big winners. And thanks as well go out to Gary and Will for a very memorable dungeon crawl (which of course was won by the best team by 4 whole points).
     Now on to the news for 2014's LARRYCON 7. As always we are looking for people to run games. It is so important for GM's to step forward and be willing to put something together and follow through (although we do understand when things have to change). Please get your ideas sent into HQ as soon as you can with a full synopsis and number of players that you can have at your table. We here at HQ already have big games on tap, because of the huge celebration of Doctor Who this year HQ will be running a Doctor Who game full of surprises. We also are putting together a major slugfest of heroic proportions in a Marvel Saga game and last but not least we are throwing out there a Star Trek game where a situation with the Romulans could get ugly. The title theme for LCON 7 is "It's a Matter of Timing"
     Big news for LCON 7 is that we are officially starting the con a day earlier next year for four full days of fun and games. Also it was bantered about that we could start an LCON board game section to the schedule, which will be done. If anyone has a board game they would like to donate to the LCON board game library feel free to bring those as well. The dates set aside at this point are July 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th so start planning your vacations around those dates....lol. Also deadlines for games to be put in for scheduling is going to be bumped up next year to March 31st in an attempt to get scheduling done faster so it can get to you so you can start planning out your weekend easier. Regarding shirts for LCON 7, shirt cost will be $20 if attending and $25 if unable to attend. Please have money in to HQ by March 31st as well. If writing a check, please email us at larryconhq@gmail.com to get the directors name. It would appear that that is all the news for now but rest assured we here at HQ are always looking for ways to make it even better every year, as proof here are some pics of a grand playtest battle of MECHCLIX. And may all of you have a great Thanksgiving and a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!
