    They had around 100 attendees that showed up. All-in-all it's a great time & all the proceeds go to the American Cancer Society. (Close to my heart as I've lost both my parents, within the past 10 years to, the 'C' monster.) They've been doing this for the past three years & each time attendance grows a liitle bit more. I just can't speak highly enough of this group & the Gaming Hoopla's they put on. Nothing better in life than good people, good gaming & a good cause. :D

    Well, if it helps, I could make you an honorary member of S.L.A.G. (Southern Lakes Area Gamers) :eek: It's my old gaming group. Our numbers have dwindled a bit over the years & we only get together every NEVER, or so, but it's a very prestigious group. :cool:

    See, if I wouldn't of cast that 'Slagger' spell, you'd be going no where this weekend.

    You know, March is a crazy month for me. We have a local Con in Memphis that I'd like to go to but because I take the whole weekend off for GaryCon I'm probably not going to make it this year. (Or, if I do, just stop by for a day.)

    However, if any of you are in Memphis or are interested you can look it up. It's MidSouth Con and it's pretty popular....lots of Sci-Fi fandom and a ton of gaming. They've had some really good Gaming GoH in the past (Jolly Blackburn, Steve Jackson) so it can be a good place to have some fun.

    If you do get a chance to make it, let me know and I'll try and stop by and say HI!!!!

    I need to get to a Hoopla. I was considering it in September last year but couldn't make it, though I mail ordered a t-shirt just to support the effort.
     
  15. the keeper

    the keeper Spellbinder

    I'm sure the group appreciates the support. :D You can always try one of the mini-hooplas. There's one this coming sunday, January 31st. Starts at 11:00am normally goes until around 8:00pm, although the last one didn't finish until around 11:00pm!! Also, if you wear your t-shirt to the Spring or Fall Hoopla you get a $1.00 off the entry fee. Every $ helps.

    GAWD!! I'am a little dense. :? Forgot to respond to this one. :oops:

    22 days 'til Spring Hoopla!!! Time to warm up those SPADs & Albatros's & get ready for another Von Deekin's 'Wings of War'. :D
     
  18. the keeper

    the keeper Spellbinder

    We're six days away!!! :D
    Anyone that's interested, & attending, I'll be running a 'Von Deekin's Wings of War' tourney on saturday morning & an 'Axis & Allies Anniversary Edition' event on saturday afternoon. I'll also be bringing 'Fortress America', (Gamemaster series), for those would be foreign invaders. I'd also like to squeeze in a game, or two, or 'Warlords of Europe'. Gonna be a game-filled weekend!! :D
    As long as Mama remembers the batteries I should have some pictures to post here after the Hoopla! :cool:
