Retro Game Day: March 3, 12 – 4 PM

As part of the college’s 50th anniversary, our club has been asked to sponsor a “Retro Game Day”.  The event will be held on Friday, March 3 from 12 – 4 PM in SSC 3245.  We need volunteers to bring old games—old board games, card games, video games/consoles, etc.—for participants across the college to play.  We also need club members to stop by and play as well!  If you can help out, PLEASE contact me ASAP so we can start advertising this event throughout the college.
