Hi,

A few of the people who entered X-Wing at Wintercon did not provide an email address when they did.
This makes it a bit hard to tell them the event is canceled.

ALL players are getting a full refund.
If you are still coming to Wintercon, email me at cgsinc@tpg.com.au to arrange to swap to another game.

Also, in the future. SUPPLY YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS WHEN ASKED FOR AN EVENT.

Sad it didn't go ahead, I was looking forward to it. I think expecting $45 for a 1 day event was a bit rich, I know it put a few other Sydneysiders off.

We try to keep prices down, but EPIC made a one million or so dollar loss last year, and are trying to get us to cover it.

If you remind me after Wintercon (Around the end of July) I will have the breakdown for costs etc, but Wintercon 2014 made about a one grand loss (Covered by the CGS). Venue was about 9grand, equipment hire was around 3 grand, prizes were near 1 grand, cleaning and power were another few grand. All up, the 15 thousand or so was not completely covered by entrants and traders.

This year looks to be the first event in 3 years to break even.


Finally, small events for single games, in free venues, will always be cheaper. But they are no where near as much fun as playing in a great hall with others from the hobby and classes and traders as well. (I may be slightly biased though.)

Even if you are not playing, feel free to pop in to have a look. As we say, Come in and play (or look) it is warmer inside.

I have just been advised that all x-wing player's payments are being refunded as we speak.
The money should go into your accounts in the next 2 days.
