For the 4th year, our club, The Thursday Night Heros, will be putting on our tourney in honour of our friend, and my cousin, Mike. Three years ago, Mike was killed in Afghanistan. He has left behind a wife and little girl. and a lot of people who loved him.
Tho I have a brother, I've always considered Mike my second brother and best friend.
We were about the same age, and we had a lot of common interests: gaming, hockey, punk and hardcore music, and Blood Bowl. Always Blood Bowl.
Mike played Amazons and played them well. He was one of the founders of our club, and our league winners get to take home the Mike Kriger memorial cup until the next season.
He is remembered as a dear friend, always helpful, always friendly.
We run the event on the last Saturday of October. This year we are looking for a new hall due to the fact that the price of the town hall has gone up, and also the place is a little small. We have a pair of figures I commissioned for the event and for sale.
The figures are Carol and Max from the book WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE.
Mike and I had talked a lot about getting the monsters from the book made into Blood Bowl figures. I must say they came out very nice. Big thanks to Rykar and my friend Simon for all the help!
I'm happy to run the event for Mike and the other pa. fallen soldiers (we take donations for the fund).
I think its important to honour these men and women who give so much to guard our freedom and protect us.
I think Mike would be proud.
I hope he knows his friends and family still remember him.
