Good Afternoon all! Just wanted to update everyone on a few upcoming events and some ideas we wanted to share after some great feedback from last nights Members Meeting.
-- Don't forget we have Thursdays up at Old School Gaming (open to everyone, need not be a member of BSG). The more the merrier!! You're club membership also gives you an extra 5% off discount when you buy games up there!
-- We are going to start OPENING EVERY SATURDAY for members while still picking 1 Saturday a month for a Themed Public event. We still plan to join Old School Gaming for their 1 Saturday a month days as well so be on the lookout for those posts on our Facebook page. Most likely Saturdays will start around 12/1PM and run into the evening. Anthony will personally be opening the doors for the first few weeks while we get the schedule worked out with the other officers.
-- CHRISTMAS IS UPON US!! To help sweetn' your holiday, will be doing a "Cookie Walk" to help raise money for the club. Details on this to come but I'm sure it will be a weekend before Christmas Day. Walk in and buy bulk cookies for your family!
-- Reminder that if you are looking for Christmas Gifts, we do have 2 games up for RAFFLE still this month (Sushi Go and Biblios) and we currently only have 4 entries into the drawing so we can't draw a winner yet!!. We might possibly push these 2 into a 3-pack raffle opportunity for December so what better gift to give than a free game, right?? Also be on the look out for other raffle opportunities like "Free 1 month Memberships" or "Free Snack Vouchers" in the coming months.
-- WHITE ELEPHANT CHRISTMAS GIFT EXCHANGE (Members Only)- So something we wanted to do this year for the holiday was to do a gift exchange for all us friends up at the club DEC 23rd. We would like to start it around 4PM and members are welcome to participate. All you have to do is show up with a gift (up to $20 in value) that is NOT a board game. If its an accessory like a dice tower or something, those are acceptable just not a full fledged game, we have plenty of those, haha. When your turn comes up, you can choose to steal an already opened gift or open a new one. Gifts can only be stolen twice before they are considered dead and can't be stolen again. Please, NO "Adult" gifts (although bottle of wine are acceptable).
-- We are going to start a REFERRAL SYSTEM in the coming weeks to help boost membership numbers. Simply put, if you get a friend to sign up for year, you will receive money off on your next membership payment. Details to come once the officers have a chance to get together and hash those out. System should be implemented by Dec 15th.
I think that's all I have to report for now. Its a lot to review but all very good ideas and a good way to give that club that 2nd wind heading into the next 6 months in Peddlers Alley. Hope to see you all out soon and as always..... Happy Gaming ;)

Good Afternoon all! Our sponsor retail store, Old School Gaming up off of Airport Highway by TGIFridays, is hosting their monthly board game day and is demoing "Dragonfire" SATURDAY Nov 18th at 3PM. A few of the officers from Black Swamp will be up there passing out flyers and free day passes that you can redeem on any of our "members only" days at the clubhouse in Waterville. We plan on being at OSG just about 3PM when the event start and will be there playing many different games into the evening. Also as a reminder, if you are a paid member with Black Swamp Gamers, you can also receive an additional 5% off board game purchases at Old School Gaming when you show them your membership card which could come in handy this holiday season for Christmas gifts :) Check out the facebook link below for event details. Hope to see some new faces out there tomorrow and as always, Happy Gaming!!
