Green Mountain Gamers Annual Meeting
The second annual GMG annual meeting will take place on April 2, 2016 beginning at 8:30am. We have not yet determined where are the Lake Morey Resort where we will meet. Anyone who attended the Mega Meltdown in 2015 is a current member of Green Mountain Gamers and can vote at and attend the annual meeting. There will be a brief discussion about the previous year followed by voting for officers. Current GMG officers are: Robert Dijkman Dulkes, President; Alex Clay, Vice President; Bethany Creaser, Treasurer; Chuck Burkins, Secretary; Carlo Gozzi, Auditor. We will post an agenda for the meeting as the day approaches.

Open play is the name of the game at Green Mountain Game Days. A huge pile of games materialize as people arrive. Then everyone gets to either push their favorite or try something that sounds interesting as it hits the table.

Typically, our game days attract board gamers but we’d love to see other tabletop games at the Spring Meltdown. If you are a GM and would like to run an RPG or minis session, please contact us. We do realize that minis and RPG’s are not well suited to open gaming but we will post your game info on our webpage to help you attract players. In 2015, we had several RPG’s offered and some GM’s struggled to find players. We’re open to suggestions on how to improve upon that.

For any of the scheduled games, there will be no sign up. They will be handled on a first come, first play basis.

Want to run some games. Let us know and we’ll add your game to our list of scheduled games.

- Warmachine tournament - details to be announced!

What is Play to Win? It’s easy! We will have a special table of games where the games on that table will be part of the Play to Win. All you have to do to win any of the games is play them. Yup. That easy. After you play the game, write your name on a piece of paper and deposit your entry into the receptacle assigned to the game you played. Play the game once. Enter your name once. Play the game twice, enter your name again. Each time you play, enter your name. We will draw the Play to Win winners at 7pm.

MORE GAMES WILL BE ADDED AS WE RECEIVE THEM - so please check our website for updates -

◾Dragonflame - donated by Minion Games - MSRP $29.99

The Lake Morey Resort will offer food sales from 11AM to 7:30PM in the Lakeside Dining Room. In 2015, they offered concession sales from late morning to late afternoon. In the evening, they did open the bar and changed over to a pub menu (cooked to order food).

In the town of Fairlee, food is available at Wing’s Supermarket deli, Leda’s Pizza, the Fairlee Diner (for breakfast and lunch only) and Subway. Drive a few minutes over the CT river to Orford, NH to Peyton’s Place. Head north 5 minutes on I-91 one exit to Bradford. Right off the exit is The Hungry Bear.
