Sponsors of the Nor'easter ASL Tournament


Nor'easter VIII: Results


Main Tourney:Tom Morin
Saturday Mini:Bruce Carson


This weekend, 33 players (including Mr Tuomo Lukkari all the way from Finland!) converged on the lovely Best Western Hotel in Marlborough, Mass for the Northeast's largest annual ASL tourney.

Tom Morin defeated Carl Nogueira at the new Dispatches scenario "Riding the Coattails" to claim the championship with a perfect 5-0 record. His prize was another excellent Joe Leoce diorama, probably his best ever, of a Japanese tank hunter hero attacking a Grant while the tank crew desperately hopes for a crew small arms boxcars.

Steve Johns finished 5-1 to claim second place prizes, a plaque and a subscription to Dispatches from the Bunker. Steve won a hard fought battle of High Danger against Al Loiselle in his final round.

Andy Clarke claimed the 3rd place plaque with a 4-2 record and the best strength of schedule tie-breakers.

Bruce Carson defeated Derek Dunn in the finals of the one day Saturday mini-tournament to claim the final plaque awarded for the weekend.

Jim Torkelson defeated Charlie Wilmer in Cream of the Crop to win the Sunday mini-tournament, and prizes of classic AH games generously donated by Rowland Hill, formerly of Mass, now of Minnesota.

Herr Doktor Chris Spell, aka Baby Gor-Gor, extracted his revenge for Mike Allexenberg's first round BEATING of his partisans by losing his last game, thus weakening his tie-breakers enough to fall to fourth place. Thanks, pal. :-)

Thanks to Ralph McDonald for his fine TD work this weekend, to Vic Provost for donating a Dispatches scenario, to Carl Nogueira for making all the hotel arrangements, to Joe Leoce for all his work into his excellent prize, and to all the attendees for bringing their fun attitudes and competition to the tourney!
