Hello To Everyone!!!!
And thank you all so much for two great years of fun and fol-de-rol!
This email is a very special acknowledgement to those of you on (and some now off) the Leadership Team who have personally helped me to keep this "juggernaught" going. THANK YOU!!!!
Sharon Harwell - Thank you my wonderful friend and co-founder extraordinaire! Without your help, I might not have even begun this wild and extravagent ride. :)
Mike H - Thank you for setting up and hosting Trivia Night Events at local pubs in our first year. Although I was never able to attend (because of yoga class), I do know that those who had gone did enjoy their evenings. ;) Thank you also for being one of the people in the begining who brought and taught games. And, thank you for continuing to do so.
Dale - Thank you for being the 3rd or 4th official member and sticking with us through "thick and thin". I appreciated the way you "stepped up" to to be the Host for the "cross-overs with the CCGP" events (when we had them) so that I could "have my 'hoity-toity' card games too"!
Vaughn - Thank you for making us all better Scrabblers and "putting up" with our "meager skill sets" with that. Thank you also for bringing and teaching us _many other games_ as well. ;P Congratulations on the purchase of your new home! We are looking forward to game play in your refinshed beasment.
William Golston - Thank you for hosting an event in your home. Those of us who did attened thoroughly enjoyed your "spread" and returned to our own homes at least 5lbs heavier! *silly giggles* We miss you and look forward to your return. :]
Jeannette - Thank you for starting our game play at Solon Panera! Saturdays they were and are a great idea. :) Thank you for "coming back to us"! We miseed you.
Robyn - Thank you for continuing the Saturday Scrabble and Board Games at Solon for middle year and then some! We hope you can "come out and play with us" again soon... from time to time. ;)
Lynne - Thank you for putting Saturdays back into the schedule. When I "took over the reigns" from Robyn, I switched the play day to Sunday because this is easier with my retail schedule.
Thank you all so much for your help!
I also wish to acknowledge those "game enthusiasts" who are also organizers of other meetup groups. Some of you have found and continue to find the time to play with us, Eastside Games with Friends, while taking the time to create and be with meetup groups of your own! Thank you!
Yvonne: She has her own book club meetup :)
Gary Brunger, Nadine (Eastside Host): The Cleveland Card Game Group

Erin, Micheal G, (Daniel G., Bill Tennant.): The Cleveland Board Game Group

Thank you all so much for your participation!
