About Me
I was born and raised in California. I moved to Chicago at the end of 2006. I was exposed to wargaming about 15 years ago whilst in college, but I haven't touched a board wargame since that time. Recently I was feeling burned out on PC gaming and thought this would be a good opportunity to try and start back up with face-to-face wargaming (or other games that may interest me).

Science - I work in molecular biology field
Motorsport - MotoGP (Go Rossi!!), World Superbikes (SBK), Formula1

Music - currently listening to...Airbourne, Yoshida Brothers, Doves, Wolfmother, Shonen Knife, The Fratellis, anything by Kraftwerk, SWEET, Woody Guthrie, Phil Ochs, BR5-49, Cowboy Nation, The Pogues, My Morning Jacket
Television - rarely watch it except for Colbert Report and motorsports

Thanks! If I had a time machine I would love to go back and see SWEET and STARZ (probably T.Rex, too) in their prime!

Yes Dave/Jeff H. runs the PAASL group. I'll send you an email later tonight on the NIASL group. If your south of Chicago it's a long drive up north Waconda is about 10 minutes from my house and when I drive down to Tinley Park it takes almost 2 hours plus tolls. If you don't mind hit me at dlazov@comcast.net and I'll send you some info.

Which part of Chicagoland area you in? I know of 2 ASL groups NIASL (Northern Illinois - Waconda) and PAASL (Palatine Area) the NIASL is meeting on the 24th of July. The PAASL is meeting either the 10th or the 16th.

Let me know which area you are located in.
