Gathering in the Desert 2011 Results


Gathering in the Desert 2011 is now in the books, had a great year with 21 folks signed up to play. We had a good turn out from the local crowd as well as folks from all over the country that attended. Battles raged for three days in the Valley of the Sun and everyone seemed to have a great time. There were many familiar faces back again as well as several new faces that stepped up for the challenge, we look forward to seeing you all next year.

I would also like to thank a few folks that helped out this year with Gathering in the Desert 2011. First up, My Wife, Shannon Kulinski, she does all the data entry at the event (and supplies M&M's to the players) as well as the other errands that I seem to forget about.

Next up Games Workshop for all the Prize and terrain support throughout the years, with out their help, GitD would not look the way it does.

Thanks go out to Darren Johnston, owner of Imperial Outpost Games were the event was held this year. Darren stepped up to the plate and was more than accommodating in letting us take over his shop for the weekend.

Another shout out of thanks goes to Jerry Autieri (Artist), Robert Brightwell (Terrain builder), Jeremy Williams (Prancing Pony Builder) and Mike Wilster (Terrain Builder). Without the help of these folks, Gathering in the Desert would just be another tournament and not a Grand Tournament.

And Lastly to all the folks that have attended GitD in years past and that have stayed loyal to supporting this event. Without you folks that come to GitD, there would be no GitD, so thank you!

Planning has started for GitD 2012 and we look to have a few surprises to announce in the upcoming weeks, so stay tuned for more info.

Also picture coverage will start in the next few days (Have well over 200 photos from the event) and they will be posted here, so stay tuned...
