      Star Wars BattleFront II (Classic, 2005) 10/17 8pm

      The servers for the original Star Wars BattleFront II were recently brought back online. The game also  supports up to 64 players and since it is a rather old game most PCs today can easily run it. So we felt this would be a perfect game for game night and maybe get people excited for the new BattleFront II next month.

      September Meetup

      Last Fall we went paintballing and we're thinking about doing again next month. Are people interested going again? Last time we went to High Velocity in Coram, it was $30 for admission & complete equipment rental for a minimum group of 20, plus the cost of paint. Would you like to go there again? or does someone have another recommendation? Please let us know.
