Nor'easter XXII: April 5-8, 2018
In the interest of promoting ASL & ASLSK, the Yankee ASL leadership, sponsors of the Nor'Easter ASL Convention (the ASL Tournament / Nor'Easter Starter Group), has decided to offer Junior High and High School students the opportunity to participate in the Convention for a fee of $5.Those students that want to participate must sign up prior to the event by 15 Mar 2018 and check whether they will participate in the ASL Tournament or the Starter Group. The $5 is a flat fee and can be used for the full event or just one day of the event.
We believe this will allow students to participate without the financial burden and full cost of the convention.
The ASL Nor'easter is New England's regional ASL championships. It is held annually near Boston, MA. It is a yearly get-together of people in the New England area that play Advanced Squad Leader (ASL). The Nor'easter is hosted and directed by the boys from The Bunker and the Yankee ASL Group
Visitors are very welcome, and you'll probably be able to play a game if you want to learn. Have a look at the archived web sites for previous Nor'easters to see what the event is like.
Doors open at 10AM on Thursday 4/5 and close at 6PM on Sunday 4/8, or when the State Troopers throw us out, with 24-hour access to the gaming rooms. The Thursday game play is open gaming, with the main and mini-tournaments, with the exception of the Big MoFo, the large scenario "Mini" tournament beginning on Friday. The MoFo, due to the scenario size, kicks off on Thursday.

Thursday: Open gaming all day. This is a great opportunity to knock off that big scenario you have been giving the eyeball for a while, but have not had time to play.
All players from beginners to experts are encouraged to play, and the emphasis is on having fun. All attendees are automatically entered into a random drawing for fabulous door prizes.
