General Meeting 2003-05-16

31 people in attendance

Columbus Area Boardgaming Society AAR: The official count was 31 total present at our meeting. (First arrival (me) to open the doors at 5:15pm, final departure (me) to close the door at 1:15am. Home at 2:30 am in an hour in 15 minutes trip that is usually 45 minutes as every exit in Columbus seemed to have night work going on and I drove around half the city getting south of it!! Long day as I was up at 6am to go off to work. Thank God I'm not closer next time ...

GAMES PLAYED: Battle Line x2 (Lost one of these), Ulysses (I lose), Settlers of the Stone Age (I win to go 6-1 in the game), Korea, Advanced Squad Leader, Roads and Boats, Bang! x2 (Win one & Lose one), Illuminati: The Card Game, Carcassonne, Puerto Rico, Hammer of the Scots, Twilight Struggle, Robo Rally, Zendo x?? (I'm not sure if I won this game or not - does anyone win this one???). Fun was had by all ...

Picked up 3 NEW PAID MEMBERS. They each paid $5 for the remaining months in the 2002-2003 gaming season. Two of these were from the local convention CAPCON who got our new business cards we were handing out at the convention. These two were in the last group to leave at 1:15 am. They took a 1/2 dozen more business cards and said that they were going to tell their gaming group to come. (They had been afraid that we were just a bunch of 'geezers with tweezers' and had never come before)
