Fellow Gamers;

      Phew... what a weekend!  A record 45 folks showed up on Saturday
(and 21 on Sunday), mostly to shop for game bargains but also to play
games like "Here I Stand", the new Axis & Allies "1914", Columbia
games, etc., etc.
      Our last fundraiser (for the Wounded Warrior Project) back in
October raised $3,000.  This one (for the "Intrepid Fallen Heroes
Fund" (a similar charity)) looks like it will raise at least $4,000
(!).
      We were able to get the message out about this to a couple -
maybe a few - hundred people.  The people who made this a success were
the two dozen people who donated about 330 games (or donated cash) and
the volunteers who helped me out;  many, many thanks.
      Obviously the folks who did the buying also made this work and
many thanks to you; hope you enjoy your games.  It looks like we sold
about 260 games.
      You have one last chance to buy games and help out our disabled
young vets from Iraq and Afghanistan.  I'd like to offer a few dozen
games for bargain prices... first come, first sold.  DEADLINE  6PM
this coming Tuesday/ 2 April.  Just send me ([address removed]) an
e-mail with your offer.

address;

Fred Bauer
7034 Devereux Circle Drive

    As with the last fundraiser I will make documentation available
(as soon as I get a receipt from the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund) so
you can be sure I'm doing what I'm saying I'm doing.

    Thanks again for helping our very best young men and women..... Fred Bauer
