Demo Game at the Game Vault

My first week in Spotsylvania has been eventful.  I was able to put on a demo game at the Game Vault using my Prince August 40mm troops.  The game was a refresher of the B.A.R. rules and a chance to meet gamers in the Fredricksburg area.

My trip to a NOVAG Friday night was stopped by a fender bender on 95's north bound lane near Quantico.

HISTORICON and Virginia here I come

I am preparing to work the polls for the runoff on the 12th and my trip to Virginia.  I was told by my family that I had to attend this years HISTORICON since it was in Fredricksburg. I plan to leave Portland, AR on the 14th.  I have pre-registered for the convention and lined up 7 games.  Till the convention I will be spending time with family and checking out the battlefields.  Within 15 miles of my brothers home in Spotsylvania lie the sites of Wilderness, Chancellorsville, Spotsylvania  Courthouse, Salem Church, Todd's Tavern and of course Fredricksburg.  I plan on having a month filled with family, history, and gaming. I will take my laptop and post pictures. Yall have a great June and July.
