The National WWII Museum in New Orleans will be hosting Heat of Battle IV, their WWII themed wargaming convention.
Heat IV will be held the weekend of August 13-15, 2010 (3 weeks from now) and currently features the following game events…
The Museum is looking for more GM volunteers. If you are interested in running a game in one of the coolest WWII wargaming venues you can imagine, please visit http://www.nationalww2museum.org/calendar/the-heat-of-battle-iv-game.html. Saturday August 14th the Museum will be celebrating the 65th anniversary of VJ-Day, so we are specifically interested in Pacific War themed games on that day. The Museum will be holding a special ceremony that day as well, in commemoration of VJ-Day. One GM per game run over the weekend will receive a free weekend’s admission to Heat.
Speaking of admission, each convention attendee gets complete access to the Museum’s exhibits, a weekend’s worth of gaming, more after-hours gaming in the convention hotel, and a student discount when attending the new 4D experience, Beyond All Boundaries. Whether you plan to GM or just attend please visit the following link to register: https://secure3.convio.net/nw2m/site/Ticketing?view=Tickets&id=104161. Also, if you’ve been to past Heats, you know that door prizes are given liberally, usually in the form of a free wargame, which often recompenses the cost of attending.
Like last year, our partner hotel is the Courtyard Marriot, just down the street from the Museum. The special rate of $69 a night is still available, so please visit the following link to make hotel reservations: http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/msycn-courtyard-new-orleans-convention-center/?toDate=8/16/10&groupCode=nwwnwwa&fromDate=8/12/10&app=resvlink
Yours truly will again be hosting a dual heat (Mid-War and Late-War) Flames of War Tournament on Saturday the 14th and a weekend-long Avalon Hills Classic Wargame Tournament as well. The official rules to both events will be available for download shortly on the Heat of Battle IV website: http://www.nationalww2museum.org/calendar/educational-wargaming-at-the.html
We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans in August and if you have any questions then please don’t hesitate to contact me directly and/or send your question(s) to Walt Burgoyne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your attention and good gaming!!
