Cabanahammer was a great event for today! Many thanks to those that attended! Cameron for the beer, everyone for the drinks and food! Lee special thanks for the extra table and everyone helping out in general. I hope everyone had a good time, sounds like everyone did.
For those that do not understand what Cabanahammer is, this is the third year. I try to do this at least once a year where I live. We have a pool and cabana with bathrooms and a kitchen. When the weather is nice this is one of the best gaming experience you can have in my opinion. I ask everyone to bring something to add to the food and drinks. I always provide a meat and side dish. This year was hamburgers and hot dogs with pasta salad. We had chips, sour cream and onion dip, great bean dip and hummas along with cookies and a wonderful blueberry cheesecake. The weather was a nice 76 today with a light wind, no rain. Can't ask for anything more perfect.
Attending was a great group of gamers, each from veteran players to new players to the hobby .Lee, Lars, Rob, Joe, Andrew, Cameron, Chris and myself were the players. We had a great host of armies including:
- Orks (Chris swapped to balance one game)
- Dark Eldar (Lee)
- Ravenwing (me)
- Imperial Guard (Cameron)
- Tau (Andrew)
- Tyranids (Joe)
- Space Wolves (Chris and Rob)
- Chaos (Lars)
My dice rolling along with Lars was the top runners for "worst dice rolling" of the event. I scout moved my Ravenwing forward, sped into the lines of turn 1. I destroyed one Hellhound with a multimelta bike. The rest wiffed. All my plasma either missed, failed to do anything or STUNNED the same rhino over and over.
The second game against Lee was a total cluster. Night shields and the 5+ save just is rude! Can't shoot the turns I flanked on, he hid in the center, picked me off slowly and used the mission to cleverly bait the game for the win. Our game was over quickly, and we got to enjoy watching the other games.
I am dead tired, and I feel this is a good time to wrap up. Some famous line of this morning, "This is a hard lesson learned" in my haste I tried to make the sour cream and onion dip in the dish and had should have made it in another bowl and added it to dish later. Comedy at its finest.
My wife is tickled as I only planned to serve hamburgers but my wife encouraged the purchase of hot dogs. She was happy that only one dog survived the event and was a great pick to our shopping list. Imagine that from a vegetarian!
