LEADA's Illustrious President demonstrates the pointlessness of fitting fireproof tires to your car.



There's been another passing of the AADA torch. Our last president, Bill Wendland, has been sacked with extreme prejudice for excessive laziness and oc-casional graft. We hope his clone will learn from Bill Prime's mistakes. But until Bill II can leave the Gold Cross vats, it's in my
hands. I want to take this opportunity to apologize for the present state of the AADA. It's a terrible mess, and I'm doing what I can to clean up. (Mostly, this involves creative application of the torch . . .)

As of this writing, all active Chapters are active until November of 1989, both as partial recompense for the present situation, and to make our file-keeping a little easier. I'm also aiming to get the AADA newsletter onto a fairly regular schedule.

Chapters should start thiimg about the Regionals sometime real soon, so we can print the Regional locations in issue 7/l. I'm also quite open to feedback on how to make the Regionals, At-large and World Championship events better, so if you have any suggestions, by all means send them in soon. And speaking of the Championships . . .
 

2039 Schedule

This year's championship season will be pretty much like last year's season. There will be four rounds: Club, Regional, Semi-Final and World. All AADA members will be eligible to compete, one way or another.

Eligible chapters may hold Club Championships any time before Regionals. Club presidents are responsible for providing us with the name and address of the winner and a copy of the winning vehicle design; they are encouraged to provide as much additional description of the event as they wish. Steve Jackson Games will mail a $15 gift certificate to each reported club champion. Club champions qualify for the final round of their Regional Championship; they will receive a bye into the second round of the World Championships if they are unable to attend Regionals.

Regional Championships will take place between March and July at major gaming conventions. There should be ten Regional locations:
California North, California South, Northwest, North, Northeast, Southeast, Texas, Midwest, Mountain West and Central. Each tournament should be hosted by an AADA chapter at a convention; interested clubs should contact us as soon as possible. SJ Games will provide the arena rules and setup. The host chapters are responsible for the same information required from the club presidents, i.e., winner's name and address and a copy of the winning vehicle. We will give an official list of the Regional locations in issue 7/l.

All AADA members are eligible to play in any Regional, regardless of whether they compete in other Regionals; however, no person may win more than one Regional. The event will consist of two rounds, six winners from the first round advancing to the second. Club champions are automatically eligible for the second round. The division classifications and arena will be the same for all regions and will be published in ADQ 7/1 to give everyone equal information before the event. Regional champions are automatically eligible to play in the Semi-Final round of the World Championships and will receive a prize to be announced. To help defray travel costs, Steve Jackson Games will give a $50 reimbursement upon arrival to all regional champions attending the World Championships. Club champions of overseas chapters are considered to be regional champions and will receive the prize and travel reimbursement as well.
 

World Championships

This year's World Championships will be held by SJ Games at Origins '89 in Los Angeles, California on June 29th through July 2nd, 1989. The event will consist of four rounds. The qualifying round is open to all AADA members regardless of participation in previous events. To enter, you will need to show proof of membership, preferably the mailer cover from ADQ 7/l or 7/2. The number of duellists who advance will depend on how many participants show up for the eliminations, but will probably be around 18. All club champions are eligible for the eliminations, as are all participants in last year's World Championship Final. About eight winners will advance into the Semi-Finals.

All Regional champions, previous World Champions, overseas club champions and the eight eliminations winners, will be eligible for the Semi-Finals. Seven Semi-Finalists will move on to the World Championships. The defending World Champion, Jeff Boe, will also be eligible to compete in the World Championship Final round. Further details will be published in ADQ 7/l.
 

Official Rules

All official rules from the second editions of Deluxe Car Wars and Dueltrack will be used. The Variant Fire Rules and Variant Movement Rules (from ADQ 6/2) will be in effect, though all other optional rules and variants will not. In addition, all rules will be subject to clarifications made in Autoduel Quarterly and other Car Wars supplements, provided such supplements were released one month prior to the event. Can-Am, Indy,
Sprint and Dragster bodies will not be available, nor will mini-safes, pending a decision from the AADA Safety and Fairness Committee.

Get those tournament proposals in soon. If no club volunteers to hold a Regional for their region, there won't be one, and you'll have to try your luck in the Qualifiers at Origins '89. More details, including the locations, divisions and arena for the Regional Championships, will appear in issue 7/l.
