Clarification on list requirements
The formations used in the first round list must be the same formations used throughout the tournament.
You cannot add, delete, or replace a formation. You CAN change the composition of a formation (revise a combat platoon, add a combat platoon, etc)

Continuing the example from the original post, if you start with a Sherman Armoured Squadron and a Rifle Company, then lists for all three rounds must be based on these two formations. You cannot add a Churchill formation later in the tournament. You can change the size or number of Sherman or Rifle platoons in their respective formations.

If there are any doubts you can submit lists to connollp@ix.netcom.com for review in advance of the tournament.

We are cooperating with the ATC convention management to try and get an accurate headcount in advance.
This will help make sure enough table space is allocated for Flames of War as well as for other tournaments taking place in the main hall.

To confirm your attendance, please go to the ATC website at
https://www.hmgsgl.org/advance-the-colors
and complete the ATC Badge Registration

Once that is complete you will receive an email invite to their EventBrite registration page where you can sign up for events.
