Sorry to deliver the bad news

Dear Board Gamers,
I'm sorry to be the messenger of bad tidings but I will be leaving the Madison (and WI) area pretty quickly here as my family, and me, are relocating to another state for employment reasons. For this reason I must sadly resign as the organizer for this group.
So what does that mean? Well, there are two options. If one of you wallflowers wants to become the new organizer for the group, then I can pass the torch--but we have to do it soon for technical/meetup reasons I guess. Get in touch soon! Second, if there is not a new organizer then the group will just disband. However, if you'd like to still consider board gaming in the Madison area, I believe there is a Madison group on Yahoo called MadisonDorks which has similar, overlapping interests. Or, perhaps later someone will restart a similar board gaming group on meetup.
On a personal note, I'm really sorry we weren't able to get together more often. It was fun to see and meet everyone that came out to the prior events. And, thanks to members who donated during events. We broke even! Kind of sends a message of nothing lost and nothing gained. Although I hope members who came out did have fun while it lasted.
If you want to talk about becoming the new organizer or have parting thoughts, please send them my way by February 2nd. At that time, I'm not sure what or how meetup handles it but as far as I know the group will officially close then.
