Launch Party West was a success! C. Andrew Walters had this to say:
"We had over forty people; people stayed all day, there were people there after 7pm when I left so they had been playing nearly eight hours. We had a bunch of people who started in 1977 and a bunch of people who learned to play today. We had at least five second-generation Ogre players, including one about six years old. The six year old had helped his dad punch and assemble Ogre DE so he was fairly knowledgeable about Ogres and their configurations. Many of us discovered Ogre fans that lived near us that we knew nothing about. We had enough prizes and they were well-appreciated. People drove up to two hours to attend and left really happy. I met new people and saw people who haven't come out to an Ogre event in years. Many Command Posts were smashed. Plans for future events were discussed."
