On Being a Central PA Player in NAC

Back from NAC. I loved the 4 days of play. Did drafting and played in NAC. Unfortunately being in an area that plays rarely I had only one quality deck built. The same Assamites the q'd me in DC. They got me 1GW, 5VP in rd. 1 to get me to rd. 2 and then it gumped me on the second day (1.5 vp).
The best single reason to go to these things is that now I have not only a face, but a haircut, a personality, a voice, a laugh, a memory for all these names that I've seen on the net. I met Xian, Ben P, Ben S, Jay and Will Kristoff, Stefan F, LSJ, Wes Weston, Robyn and David T. These are now people with personalities instead of just names on a screen. I got to see Pat L, Josh D, Oscar G, Jon S, Carol O'Bryan, and many others I can't remember right now.
I was my first NAC, and after it I hope it's not my last.
It was truly a privilege to play with everyone.
Congrats to the final Table especially Josh. Who admitted and apologized for using cheese to oust me (and 2 others) in game 3 (rd. 2) to get his GW to get to the final table. Although Fatima did hold on and put a couple of his minions down before I went. ;)

Hey, good meeting you too, Tobin. And it was fun playing an actual game with you on NAC Day 2, even if it didn't work out in your (or my) favor.
