Gaming in Middletown, July 28, 2012!


Middletown session begins at 3PM tomorrow. I will be providing 2 pots of chili. If you want to bring a side that would accompany the chili that would be swell. Mike Groshorn has indicated that he will be bringing corn bread and a fruit salad.

Hope to see all you here.
