General Meeting 2004-04-16

64 people in attendance

Record Friday Night CABS Crowd

REPORT FROM MIKE Z, ... (with edits by me)

Keep your eyes open for a new building. Nine new members signed up this Friday (2 of these were spouses). We are at 90 PAID members. REMEMBER the FIVE DOLLAR MEMBERSHIPS for the remaining game year through the end of September !!! We think we are past the critical mass point as more gamers are coming in than leaving.

Bud will provide the official body-count. However, I recorded 58 that actually know how to write and signed the attendance sheet. (Bud reports 64 was the official body count) Over 44 recorded games played. GAMA can't bring you this every odd Friday, Origins can't bring you this every odd Friday. But your local Columbus Area Boardgaming Society gets the job done. Give us any size room, a little time and we can fill it! 

We went international again as several of the Gathering crowd dropped by to game with us. Our club was privileged enough to have on hand the ONLY copy of Memoir’44 to try out plus we had two copies of only 24 in America the RIO GRANDE game POWER GRID!!! It will be in stores in 3-4 weeks as they are on a slow boat from Europe. Both look good. 

Several new games purchased for the Library from the PREZCON auction and the GATHERING flea market.

Our back to back meetings are on tap next !!! Our 5th Friday of April and 1st Friday of MAY !!!
