Sad News

One of our GCOM Hosts, Hal Haag, died yesterday of a heart attack. Here's the announcement from Keith.

To all,
It is with great sadness that I report that Hal Haag passed away from an apparent heart attack this morning, Wednesday, August 12th.

I received a phone call from Evan Haag, Hal's son this evening at around 6pm. Hal passed away from an apparent heart attack this morning. Evan had no other information or details at this time.

I will do my best to keep everyone informed.

Hal was an active member of Games Club of Maryland. He was the host of Alphabet Soup, co-host of Glen Burnie, Elkridge and the former Columbia locations, a GCOM Director at Large, and a regular at several GCOM locations and events. He was also very active in the Baltimore Science Fiction Society and the annual Baltimore Science Fiction Convention ("Balticon").

We will all miss him greatly.

Keith Levy
President and Founder, Games Club of Maryland
