Here is what Chris Doary had to say about CASLO XX.
Four days of ASL, < 16 hours of sleep. What a blast!
Great turn out. Venue was big improvement over past sites in Montreal. Liked the new, four-day format. Will be back when Montreal hosts next CASLO.
Kudos to Michael, and his crew (Doug, Martin, et. al.).
Congrats to the winners of the four events. Brian looked really happy upon taking the CASLO crown for the first time. Hope he and others will be back to contest the title in the future.
Encouraging to see an ASLSK event included again. One attendee played his first face-to-face game at the event. (He credited Pat Ireland with coaching him on VASL, and giving him the confidence to sign up for the tourney.) Even more encouraging, several ASLSK players switched to ASL play for the remainder of the weekend. One even played a PTO scenario, his first. He had a riot with the Japanese.
With over 30 attendees from California to France, this was probably the most cosmopolitan CASLO to date. I think everyone got a chance to play someone new, and most, if not all, learned something new in the process. I learned (the hard way) that a thrown DC automatically hits the rear target facing of an AFV in the same hex.
Looking forward to next year in Victoria!
