May's theme is "Epic Charges". May 2013 marks the 150th Anniversary of the ACW Battle of Chancellorsville (April 30 - May 6, 1863), where a massed Rebel infantry charge nearly rolled up an entire Corps on the right of the Army of the Potomac. Any game where the battle depicted features a charge, by infantry, cavalry or even tanks, it will fit the theme. You need not play a game related to the theme; the idea behind the theme is to get people to play games or explore eras or systems that they might not otherwise.
Remember to pre-arrange your games and opponents on our message board in this thread: http://www.meetup.com/canucksamuck/messages/boards/thread/34024272
Newcomers are always welcome. You don't need to bring a game if you don't have one; other members usually bring far more than are necessary.
Due to a scheduling conflict, we have moved the meet up location for this month - details in this thread:
We will be at the Thirsty Fox Pub, lower level, located at 1028 Eglinton Ave W.
There is a street festival on Saturday, so street parking will be extremely tight. Expect to park on nearby side streets or take the transit.
To get to the pub by TTC, take the #32 bus east (if coming from Eglinton West station on the University line) or the same bus going west (if coming from Eglinton station on the Yonge line). Both buses run frequently. Get off at Rostrevor Road - the Thirsty Fox Pub is on the north side of Eglinton between Rostrevor Road and Camberwell Road.
They just open at 11, so we may not get in until a little after 11, and we have to leave the lower level at 5:30 or so.
