This December, DFIR blogger MJ;-) (yours truly) is going to organize his second ever Warhammer 40,000 tournament.
The tournament will be a Charity event to benefit the U.S. Marine Corps' Toys for Tots organization. I've actually been "threatening" to do just this for like the last 4 or 5 years. But I've finally pulled the trigger and followed through on my past threats.
So if you are in the central North Carolina area (or a glutton for a good road trip), then ready your force, pick up some toys for your entry fee, and head on over to All Fun & Games on December 4!
Here's the skinny...
