The 2004 MONTREAL ADVANCED SQUAD LEADER FESTIVAL
This year, we change our format. No more time-limited five hour rounds! The main tournament will be as many rounds as necessary, probably four or five rounds, to have one undefeated player. That player becomes Mr. 10-3. The only time to remember is the nine a.m. start time each day. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. each morning. Each round will have a choice of five scenarios. Players can choose scenarios from previous rounds by mutual agreement. At least one choice will require knowledge of only chapters A to D. Each player secretly chooses and ranks three scenarios, and then the players compare choices to arrive at the scenario they will play. The tournament rules, distributed on site, explain everything in detail.

This year the Montreal ASL Festival will feature several mini tournaments for players who can join us for only one day, or for players who choose to leave the Mr. 10-3 tournament after they can no longer win. Saturday evening will see the first round of a Fog of War mini which will use two historical ETO scenarios designed by Ian Daglish. Ian has published several scenarios with MMP and has recently published a book about the Normandy Operation Bluecoat. In this mini, each player knows only their own OB and VC.
Sunday morning, we will start our Armour mini. Players will participate in a preliminary heat in which they will play as many armour only scenarios from a supplied list, as they can, in a fixed amount of time. The two players with the best records will participate in the final round during the evening, which will feature a choice of several large predominately armour scenarios.

During all three days, players may choose to engage in open gaming instead of participating in a tournament.
All games reported on players tournament record will be applied by us to OARS and ROAR. We will provide reduced size copies of the scenarios during the tournament.
We will have trophies for the winners of each of our tournaments. We will also have trophies for things like best ROF, most twos and most twelves. We expect to have merchandise prizes and gift certificate prizes.
