Hi all,
New to the group, have a place to play, and am looking for folka. Am also willing to travel, at least within NOVA. Have a mice collection of games .

Chris, I do have a place to play, and a space where I can store games-in-progress over an extended period.  'Course, if you take that job in Connecticut, we may be playing with VASSAL in any case!

Feel free to email me through the site.

For instance, Fire in the Lake, Churchill, Triumph and Tragedy, Liberty or Death...???...none of which I managed to snag before they went out of print.  (Used to was we could let the actual/real grognards work out bugs on ConSimWorld and then buy stuff...I say a firing squad for the blackguard who invented 'just-in-time inventory')!!

Chris,

     Congrats on the job offer!  Best of luck.

     But before you go...  If you have a title in which you take particular interest, we could adjust the club sked around your plans, marking a special-event day when you join us, or, perhaps sked an event between now at the club's next date (the 27th).

     Btw, there were a couple of typos in my earlier long note.

     (P.s., I myself grew up in Catonsville.  311 Wessling Circle.  Ah yes, my Dogfight-and-Stratego years!)

     Anyway,

I should have added that Ty Bomba, Rick Sinnreich and Peter Pellegrino all lodged comments as well.  Talk about attracting grognards!

Tim—It sounds like you have a good thing going down there in AA county. I wish I had gone to high school around here! I'll be in touch regarding future meetings. I'm not entirely sure of my schedule for the rest of the month, I just got a surprise job offer in Connecticut so, I have no idea what's going to happen a month from now.

I don't have a lot of history in wargaming—definitely not an old grognard. I got back into gaming last summer and sort of stumbled on some of GMT's newer CDG's. I've been getting into COIN and more hex and counter stuff since then, but I am definitely still a neophyte, albeit an enthusiastic one.

Gerald—I guess I live in the Yale Heights neighborhood? I'm just a couple hundred feet from living in Arbutus instead of the city. I actually do all my grocery shopping in Arbutus or Catonsville, I'm conveniently located just off of 695, near the Wilkens Ave exit.

JMGray—that sounds great! Do you have a place to play? I only ask because my place is tiny, un-air conditioned, and my wife would not tolerate our kitchen table getting filled up for too long.

Jim,

     I read it several weeks ago.  Commented, in fact.  Brilliant work!  I'm grateful that MarCorU leadership has the wisdom to support your initiative.  I'd recommend that everyone on this distro read your WotR article.

     V/r, Tim

To Tim Smith - I am very interested in your ONI gaming --- I am doing much the same thing in military education, see: http://warontherocks.com/2016/04/wargaming-in-the-classroom-an-odys... 

Please drop me a note at jimlacey1@msn.com

Chris, I would be glad to try Empire of the Sun with you sometime.  I live in the Owings Mills/Reisterstown area. 

Gerry, we seem to be have many old AH games in common.  I would love to try 1776 ftf sometime, among others.  I also have an interest in Civil War games.
