A very happy bunch of D3 gamers are getting ready for the awards night and are hoping to scoop one of the awards plaques for the category winners. We have an awards night every April and this month will be the best yet as we got a sponsor to support the night.
It takes three of us about three weeks to get everything ready and we are happy to have fitting in getting some support organised this year to help pay for the event. A local game shop is taking part this year and have kindly supported us with some funding to make it the best event yet.
Plaques are ordered for the winners
We have a number of awards for the participants to go for in a range of categories and each one will get a trophy with an engraved plaque with their name on it. Last week we did the judging and ordered all the plaques to be engraved ready for the 26th and the party. We had sorted the venue weeks ago and the local hotel staging the night have been tremendous with us and helped with the preparations. They have come up with a great menu for our guests and organised a deal on rooms for the night as many have a fair distance to come and the night always ends in a little excess, well a lot of excess so staying over is a must really.
We have thirty people attending so far and a few stragglers that are coming but just always book late and the entertainment this year will be a mates band who I think are pretty cool called 4 Guys 1 Drum.
Up for two awards plaques
I am up for two awards for the night, best score and most quests completed and think I will scoop at least one of them. I one the award for most impressive battle last year which led to a live demonstration of the warfare from two of the boys which was hilarious.
With so much to play for on the night most of the guys are pretty excited already and there has been loads of banter already from them. All the votes are already in and only the trio know the winners although any we are shortlisted for are judged by any remaining judges but obviously not the ones nominated.
We were really happy with the event last year and everyone went home really happy and so the challenge this year was to make it bigger and better than before which I think we are on course to manage. We have secured some really rare and very exclusive Diablo 3 stuff for the overall winner on the night and I am crossing everything that I am in with a shout for it as the prize is immense and will make everyone who doesn’t win it very jealous.
All that’s left now is to wait for the awards plaques to arrive and we are ready to get the party started. http://www.stonesign.com
