Journeyman 2014 Rumblings

Our Gaming group’s annual Journeyman League is upon me once again…This year’s league is a lot earlier in the year per request and the focus has shifted to a more “competitive” minded league.

Tips for a Successful Journeyman League!

As you may or may not, Journeyman leagues are my ish. The past two I’ve been a part of have been complete  successes for me.  I’m usually in the top 3 across every category (always a groomsman?). With talks starting up about doing our 2014 Journeyman League earlier in the year (March it’s looking like), ...
