UPCOMING SPECIAL EVENTS/NEWS

NOVAG/Potomac Wargamers Game Days.  I say Game Days, because on Saturday 26 Jan Brian DeWitt hosted an open gaming session at the City of Fairfax library.  He ran a WWI naval game and Chris Brand ran an auto racing game. There must have been round 15 folks there with Fred Haub providing lunch.  Sunday saw us at the Centreville Library.  Thanks to all the GMs and gamers who came out to make both days a success.
