  7. Recruits is an outstanding convention. It deserves all the support our community (gaming) can give them. $5 admission fee, promotes gaming to the youth, inexpensive food, not sure if there are even fees for the vendors....
    Hats of to Duane Fleck for his efforts.

  8. Indeed CH - we have a similar event here in Auckland, NZ, each year: BattleCry.

  9. You guys did a excellent game hope to see you in the spring
