I am not interested in running a game at this event.
I can loan you troops if you want to run a game.
I'd recommend the Charge of the Light Brigade or the Zombie Race game rather than colonials.

I would be interested in the Friday night
game if you wanted to run a smaller British Colonial or even an Ancient
game. Just to show the club colors.

Subject: RE: Second Friday Mesa / NerdvanaCon
Rick and I are setting up gaming in an empty storefront
for the upcoming NerdvanaCon, which is part of Second Fridays in downtown
Mesa. The folks at Queens Pizza have graciously given us an empty
storefront (125 W. Main Street) next door to them to run gaming (a portion
of it will be used for Retro Video Gaming). I know it is short notice
(we received the info Wed night), and I have no idea what the turnout will
be like, but we thought you might want to come out and promote the club
and run some games.
The event is Friday night August 10th from 6pm to 10pm
and Saturday (times still TBD, but likely 11am - 6 or 7pm). Hope
all is going well,
Like I mentioned earlier, we have no idea if the turnout
will be good or bad, as this is the first time they've tried to do this
at one of these events.
Thanks and have a great weekend,
Any of you guys interested in this?
It is scheduled on our regular game weekend.
I do not know what NerdvanaCon is.
Here is a blurb:
NerdvanaCon: Downtown Mesa, 8/10/2012
fifth anniversary is nearly upon us — Aug. 22, 2007, was our first post
