Vol. XV, no. ix, September 2005
The next Workshop will be on
Saturday, October 1 at the Commander's
house! Open house and casual, 10 AM to 4 PM. I'll have the
usual el cheapo lunchy things, maybe a dash of frivolity, but don't
me to try to compete with JJ! Let me know if you're hoping to
particularly if you need directions. See you there!
The last time the Legion did an event which involved mainly hanging out in a lobby was our very first event back in 1992. So our little gig at the National Capital Model Soldier Society show was a bit of nostalgia. And very comfortable! There were plenty of modelers and gamers who were very eager to talk to us. For the sake of variety, I wore my Greek hoplite gear, Dan went Thracian, and Mike wore his new Republican era kit. We even got filmed by a Czeck TV crew! The show's organizers are hoping that we can do this again next year.
Thanks to Richard for running
the Fall Encampment on Saturday.
Apparently it was a learning experience! There were seven
that day, though the only one to return on Sunday was our Friendly
Barbarian, Steve Peffley. Sean and I joined him--we hadn't been
to attend on Saturday. Both days saw a good 50 visitors or more,
all very enthusiastic.
