The Schenectady Wargamers Association - September 2018 Game-a-thon Summary

JenEriCon 25: Saturday, September 8, 2018

Jennifer and Eric Paperman met while gaming at a Game-a-Thon and were married in September 1993. To celebrate their 25th anniversary, they are taking over the September Game-a-Thon and renaming it.

They will pay the Game-a-thon admission for anyone who brings them a card, wishing them a happy 25th anniversary. To qualify, the card has to have the following at a minimum: And, Anniversary, Eric, Happy, Jennifer, 25th.

No gifts, please. After 25 years, Jennifer and Eric have plenty of stuff. If you really want to mark the occasion, become an organ donor. (We will have forms on hand at the September Game-a-thon.)

Jennifer and Eric will also be providing food (bagels and cream cheese in the morning, pizza and cupcakes in the evening) and drinks (soda, water, milk).
