NOW DRAW, DRAWWWW
SO. OKAY. YEAH. I had to cancel meetings, but now I have a job and I'll be contacting Adam at Heroes shortly to set up meetings again. However, due to the nature of it's the holiday season, we probably won't be having formal meetings until after New Years. So, STAY TUNED!!
-breathes sigh of relief-
okay. I know you guys are probably really frustrated with how migratory this club has been, and I apologize profusly. But I've finally got in contact with Heroes and Fantasies (San Antonio), and, permantly, from September onwards we'll be holding our meetings there. Should MOST of the time be the 3rd Saturday of each month, 5-9pm. But there is a chance we'll be pushed up or back a week, depending on what happens at the store. :)
So I thank you for your patience, and I hope to see you at the meetings!
