Thanks-GIVING Game Day!

SWAG and Las Cruces Board Gamers are teaming up to do more than game this time - we want to give something to the community.

At this special game day there will be a modest door fee of a toy or a new (in shrinkwrap) game. All toys and games will go to charity for children.

Also, we would like the most people possible, so wherever we get the most RSVP's is where we will hold the game day. The rest of us can carpool or commute. So, vote with your RSVP if you have a preference between Las Cruces or El Paso. If you can't travel out of town that day, it would be helpful if you could add a comment under your RSVP to let us know. I'm positive that Manny and I will both be happy no matter where we hold this one!

 ********************************************

I (Manny) would like to add an additional request for this game day.  I would like us to bring in non-perishable food items to donate back to the community.  I will make sure these get to worthy organizations like Child Crisis Center, Salvation Army or The West Texas Food Bank.  To further encourage generous donations for needy families I will give a ticket for a drawing for a new in shrink game prize for EACH non-perishable  food item donated.  The Thanksgiving holiday is coming up and there are great prices for many food items, please pick up a few extra as you shop for your own Thanksgiving meal.

    It was great. It was nice to meet our new member, Michael V., too. We hope it was only the first of many meetups to come.

    Thank you to all who came and gave generously. Thanks to our host Melissa for opening her home to us for this worthwhile reason to game. A personal thank you to Starla for her thoughtfulness, kindness and generosity. Many games and food items were collected. They will be delivered to the Child Crisis Center, where abused, abandoned and neglected children are provided temporary shelter. Again thank you to all

    Hey guys, I can host at my place, Westside makes an easier commute for Las Cruces folks.

      Melissa, how many tables do you think can be set up at your house? Would you need tables or chairs brought in?

      November 25, 2013

    • Melissa D.

      We can set up 4 tables accommodating (6-8, 4-6, 4-6, 2-4). We would probably need additional chairs, maybe 4 or so. If weather nice enough there is also a patio table.

      It is looking very much as though this WILL be held in El Paso. Hooray for the Christmas Spirit in our El Paso group!!! You all are the best! :-)
