The Fight to the Finish


On Saturday morning, we had a nice even 8 players at 2-0:  Mike Allexenberg, Alan Loiselle, Carl Nogueira, Charlie Willmer, Ted Wilcox, Bob Tufano, Bob Bendis, and Friday Partisan Mini Champ Paul Chamberland.  Allexenberg defeated Willmer in J116 Brigade Hill.  The other 3 quarterfinal matches all played ESG48 Pak Nest.  Chamberland defeated Wilcox.  Loiselle defeated Tufano.  And Nogueira defeated Bendis.


Saturday afternoon/evening saw Loiselle’s Germans defeat Nogueira’s Americans in J124 Cobra Kings.  Chamberland’s British held off Allexenberg’s Germans in AP40 Head of the Mace, in a fantastic see-saw game that went well after midnight.


Sunday’s Final saw Loiselle’s Swedes defeat Chamberland’s Russians in SV1 Ten Ton Tank.  This was Al’s second NorEaster title.




The Friday Mini Tourney featured partisan scenarios.   Sponsored by Joe Gochinski, who provided prizes for all players in the Mini, the Friday Mini Tourney is a two round mini, with results counting towards the Main Tourney.  Paul Chamberland bested the field of four by beating John Worden IV and Brian Sullivan.


The Saturday Mini, featuring scenarios from Dispatches from the Bunker, had only 4 participants and two rounds.  The first round saw Jim Torkelson defeat Will Willow and John Worden IV defeat Rob Shuster.  The finals saw Worden’s Poles defeat Torkelson’s Slovaks in DB040 Riding the Coattails to claim the Saturday Mini Tourney plaque.


The Mo-Fo Mini had 4 participants, Brian Wiersma, Kedge Johnson, Vic Provost, and Mark Evans.  In the first round, Wiersma’s Germans defeated Evans’ Russians in A98 Crossing the Gniloi Tikitsch.  Johnson’s Germans defeated Provost’s Russians in the same scenario.  For the MoFo Finals, Wiersma’s Russians defeated Johnson’s Germans in U28 Sowchos 79 to claim the NorEaster MoFo Mini Tourney plaque.

NorEaster wouldn't be a 14 year long success story without help from a lot of hands. Thanks to Carl Nogueira for organizing the hotel arragements, producing a scenario list, and acting as Minister of Propaganda; Charlie Hamilton, for keeping things running smoothly as Tournament Director, and for bringing the tourney into the late 20th century by computerizing all results; Vic Provost, Joe Gochinski, and Ralph McDonald, mini-tourney directors; Steve Johns for all his hard work on an awesome diorama; MMP, Joe Gochinski, Vic Provost, and Ralph MacDonald for providing prizes; to the many who donated prizes to the raffle: Joe Gochinski, Ralph MacDonald, Tom Morin, John Richards, Vic Provost (and please forgive me if I have forgotten any donors - I'm working on about 7 hours of sleep for the whole weekend); to Joe one last time for the spread of snack foods that he brought; and to my wife Abbe and Mrs Wordan for providing home-made brownies ("the best bleeping brownies I've ever had in my life" - G.Trezza) and cookies.
