Real Life Rears Its Ugly Head...

Howdy folks,

Unfortunately, I have some disappointing news to convey in this post. Due to production and overtime requirements here at the factory, I'm going to have to cancel tomorrow's Hobby Night, and postpone the Birthday Celebration until June 20th. Yes, I know, this is last minute, and I'm sure many of you will be as disappointed as I am. However, this is unavoidable.

Hosting Legio at the factory is a great thing. We have a good space with ample parking, well lit, and there's a good number of tables (that will soon be increasing!). But, when we have to work the occasional weekend to make toy soldiers, our primary duty at the factory must lie there. I hope everyone understands.

The good news is that the Flames of War hobby continues to do well despite the global economic struggles. This month we're having to make A LOT of toy soldiers to keep up with demand. :)

Hobby Night will resume on Friday, May 29th at the normal time.

Due to a factory refit, overtime, and SPORE 2009, the next best day to schedule our Birthday Celebration is Saturday, June 20th. All other details remain the same. Look at the bright side- you now have more time to work on your Golden Kris entry! :)

Thanks for everyone's understanding in this scheduling issue.

Cheers

  2. A bummer for sure. Due to its urgent nature I also forwarded an SMS to everyone in my phone's list. Luckily Ernest is in the list, I better ask him to forward the info to the rest of the new sign-ups.

  3. I have a family emergency that requires me to be out of town on this Saturday anyway, so I would have missed this. However, there's gonna be a wedding on the 20th of June which will occupy my time as well. Ah, well.

    "Hobby Night will resume on Friday, March 29th"
