I'd like to share photos of some prize support that arrived today, courtesy of Tom Anders at Impact! Miniatures. These prizes will be raffled off at the Blood Bowl event on November 27th. 

Three star players, an entire Dwarf team and two sets of METAL block dice! Sweeet.

Okay - this is LAAAATE but here we go.  I have dates for Foodhammer 2016, I have locations too! I am waiting on sponsors and I am waiting on YOU and your generosity, sense of fun and all the things!

All of the other events will be at Fraternal Order of Eagles, in North Vancouver

Kings of War and Bolt Action will be held simultaneously on Sunday November 20th

The Paypal button is live. If you want to take part in two events, you can just visit http://paypal.me/foodhammer and send the combined amount (to friends and family, please)

Our sponsors - we still have the wonderful guys on TABLEWAR watching our backs and your models with their awesome gaming mats.  Your models don't break, your dice roll nice and as long as you clean it up quick, it doesn't mind getting a bit wet.

IMPERIAL HOBBIES are firm friends of Foodhammer and have been with us from the very start.  Francis and his team run a great store and stock a wide variety of games, toys, miniatures and hobby materials.  Go see 'em!

SECRET WEAPON MINIATURES are your friends. They produce high quality resin, brass, scenic and weathering products for scale model hobbyists and tabletop wargamers. I love the high quality product and they really do love what they do. 

TECTONIC CRAFT STUDIOS is run by Dan Cotrupe. He makes great laser cut product and was a pioneer on kickstarter in his field.  

Please go visit their stores and see what they have to offer.  Also - SIGN UP! We'll have a lot of fun again this year. I knows it!

The cheque for 2015.

So here it is! I just took that big wad of cash from the weekend to the credit union and watched them put it through the counting machine. Coast Capital kindly waived the fee for making the draft - every little helps!

The income was obviously more than this but there are the usual expenses like trophies and investing in the dice (profit is made on the dice which more than covers the trophies), and of course we paid Fraternal Order of Eagles for the use of the room. Sadly our Warmachine event was not as well attended as it has been in the past, and hopefully we can work on improving that next year.

I am very grateful to all of you who came out and donated your time and your hard earned cash to help make this annual event the success it is, and I hope that you have all had fun at the same time. Thank you all so much.

Our running total is now $20718.54, which is definitely something that we can all be proud of. I know that I am.

Big hugs to all of my colleages - friends - who have helped me put this together, this year and in the past four years. Jason Dyer. Nick Daniels. Les Sohier. Dan Miner. Mark Handford. Jind Singh. Justin Doyle. Melissa Daines. Jonas Malapas. Andrew Muirhead. I could not do it without the support of these good people.

Of course I could not have even started this without the support of my wife Laura. She's my rock.

And our sponsors! They support us each year in these events and I am so grateful to them.  Many of them I look on as friends, and that they go out of their way to help us make other peoples' lives a little better says a lot about the kind of people they are.  So please - support them. Buy their stuff.

So there will be a Foodhammer 2016, I promise! I usually grumble for about six months that I don't want to do it again. If you hear me say that, tell me I'm wrong!
