UPCOMING SPECIAL EVENTS/NEWS

28 Oct.   This just in: Brian DeWitt reports that a group is kicking off a series of Championship Formula Racing (CFM) events.  CFM is based on Speed Circuit by Avalon Hill but has been greatly enriched rules.  The rules are posted on-line at Lucid Phoenix and are being run at a number of the local game conventions.   They are looking for players to participate.  The first two events are at Country Libraries and will use their community rooms.  Brian will be hosting the first race and Chris Brandt will be hosting the second race.  The first race is the Cleveland Grand Prix and will be in 1/43 scale so we will be using a large table.  If you are interested in participating just show or you can contact Brian to look for you.  This will be held at Thomas Jefferson Library 7415 Arlington Boulevard Falls Church, VA 22042-7409 703-573-1060 October 28 from 10am until 1:30pm in Meeting Room #2 which holds 50 people.

19-20 Jan.  Barrage Con.  The Hawks will be hosting Barrage in Havre de Grace, Md.   This is a make up of the one in September that was cancelled.  Further details as they become available.

Pins: McConnell has had some very nice 1” NOVAG pins made up.  He has donated them to the club and we will sell as a fundraiser.  They cost $3 a piece or 2 for $5. Contact John at:john.e.mcconnell@eds.com  

NOVAG at Huzzah Hobbies:  Dave Luff has arranged for NOVAG to have a table at Huzzah Hobbies on Friday night following the Flames of War afternoon game.  If anyone wants to run a game there, let David know at dluff20164@yahoo.com

KGB Charity Game Sale: Fred Bauer reports: “The fundraiser was a success with about $10,000 raised.  I mailed a check for $7,000 this morning to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund and will mail a check for about $3,000 to Fisher House when the rest of the $ comes in.  Of about 600 games for sale there are only about 40-50 left.  (I'm contemplating a post-sale sale).  We had exactly 100 people sign in (some came both days, but there probably were some that didn't sign in). At any rate thanks to everyone who made this possible.”
