Finally, Greg recently emailed out the following updates regarding this great event:
Greetings AA Gamers,
The Spring Gathering is only 2 weeks away and with the great weather we have been having, all the more reason to plan a mini trip to Cincy, Ohio and join us for this years Axis & Allies Spring Gathering X. Bring a friend, your wife, your kids and enjoy a weekend of playing games in a very casual and friendly setting.
A lot of the events slots are filling up so don’t miss out on getting in on one of the scheduled events. And if the event you wanted to get into would sell out, no fear; we can get another event up and running for the same game.
Also, don’t forget about the Tri-State Warbird Museum Tour on Friday April 13 at 4:30pm. At this time, we are only about 1/2 full on pre-registration for this great portion of the SG so don’t miss out. Bring your dad, your kids and let him enjoy this awesome part of American/World History. Note: you do not need to attend the Spring Gathering to attend the Warbird Museum Tour but I do need to know if you are interested in attending due to registration for the Museum Tour is due in advance. The cost of the Museum tour is separate from the cost for the entry free for the SGX.
