General Meeting 2004-01-02

38 people in attendance

What would you have done ???

Would you take the over or under of CABS meetings attendees versus the Buckeye points scored in their Bowl Game on the same night as the meeting ??? Not as easy as it sounds !!!

Well Ken G, took the over and guess 38 game meeting attendees and hit the target !!! 38 gamers including 4 new visitors joined up for some FIESTA gaming last night. You knew something was up when at 5:30 there were 15 gamers on hand !!! Thanks to Dennis H, for at midnight many of us were huddled in front of a portable TV making sure the Buckeyes did not give up and lose the game. At 11:30 there were still 26 gamers on hand and when Ken, Dennis and I headed back to Cville at 12:30, GARY was playing BANG!!! and there were 20 still playing games including 2 of the 4 newbies. Steve B, defied all of what we had been talking about and one of the newbies that showed up was a retired die hard AVALON HILL wargamer of about 60 years and had PANZER LEADER in tow and ended up playing Steve all night !!! It was a light night for Wargames.
