4/20

CODC14 on was a success.

V Wetherholt

  There were around 400 guests this year. There was enough space for all the games going on and we believe fun ws had by all. This year we provided pipe&drape for the registration area. Our green and silver drape color matched the pillars and sign for this year's theme "Going Old School". A special thanks to Dr. Allen and the COD Sci/Fi & Fantasy Club for providing this excellent venue. We hope to do this again next year.  

4/22

Concentric 2009 will be in Sugar Grove again this year.

V Wetherholt

 

We will once again be in the Sugar Grove Community Center. Although Sugar Grove seems to be a bit to far to travel for some, it will be well worth it.. We wwill be able to provide food at this location for a very reasonable price. There will be all the familiar games and maybe some new ones. It is easy to find and has planty of space. There ia adequate parking. There is even a nearby motel for out of town guests.
