Summary of West Coast Ice I

This is an account of West Coast Ice I, originally referred to as the "BayCon Tourneyette", which was held at the BayCon science fiction convention at the San Jose Doubletree Hotel, Sunday, 30 May, 1999. This was the first Icehouse tournament ever to be held west of Ohio.

First, the table of the scores and stuff (thanks to Eeyore, from whose basic format I cribbed heavily):

Key: ( )=Solo Win; [ ]=2-way Tie; { }=3-way Tie; % %=4-way Tie; I=Icehouse

And now, a list of random thoughts about what made this tourney what it was (good and bad):

And, a photo gallery (photos by either myself or Beth Zuckerman, with one exception)...

Each of the finalists received an origami set, and Mr. Grayson also went home with a Fluxx deck, in addition to the trophy.

At this point, looks like we'll be doing West Coast Ice II next year...! :-D
