CABS secured donations of several games while most of our Board of Directors was at GenCon. We would like to thank the following publishers for their generous donations to the library:
Mr. B's Games
The event grid is nearly ready to go and will be published next week along with instructions for preregistering individual events. If you still have an event you would like to run, please submit it immediately!
The volunteer schedule is being sent for confirmation to everyone who is listed on it today for confirmation. There are three slots left: Friday 12-3 (newly added), Sat 3-6 and Sat 9 to midnight. .
We are looking for volunteers to run “Learn Your Free Game” sessions. We will be giving away plenty of games at BGF and would like attendees to know what they've won! If you would like to assist in this effort, please let us know. (A list of giveaway games should be available next week.)
We are considering holding a table in the dealer’s hall for CABS member’s arts and crafts. This table would be/is restricted to made items (if you want to sell your used games that’s what the consignment store is for). So email us if you would be interested!
Please direct all BGF-related e-mails to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Food Truck for Aug. 9: The Pickled Swine
The Pickled Swine, specializing in deli-style sandwiches, will be returning to CABS for the Aug. 9 general meeting.
Charter Proposal Update
At last week's meeting the Board of Directors completed the process of reviewing the proposed charter. The Board will be opening a two-week period for comment from the membership on the proposed charter beginning this Friday.
A copy of the current charter, the proposed charter, and a document prepared by the Board outlining the major changes to the charter will be sent via e-mail to CABS members only on Friday. All feedback regarding the charter should be sent to the Board at email@example.com no later than Friday, August 22. Any feedback received will be considered before scheduling the date for voting on the proposed charter.
New Food Truck for Aug. 1 Meeting
CABS welcomes a new food truck for our August 1 meeting: Red Plate Blue Plate. This truck features "Carolina Coastal" cuisine, with several salads and shrimp dishes to choose from, as well as cheesy grits.

Board of Directors Meeting Aug. 1
The Board of Directors will hold its monthly meeting at 6pm during the August 1st general meeting. While a formal agenda has not been established, the Board is expected to review the complete proposed charter as amended.
All CABS members are invited to attend the meeting.
Shadowbox Game Night Update
A healthy mix of CABS members and non-members alike attended our second Bring Your Own Game Night in conjunction with Shadowbox on July 18. Official attendance for the night was 50 gamers. A couple of new faces were even spotted at last week's CABS meeting!
Many thanks to Brandon Anderson at Shadowbox, and CABS member Kristin Genchi, for their assistance in making the night a success. We are currently talking to Shadowbox about making BYOG Night a regularly scheduled monthly event, and hope to have a schedule to announce soon.
Buckeye Game Fest Event Submission
2014-07-17We are reopening the window for submitting events for Buckeye Game Fest. If you would like to run an event, please contact CABS.ConventionDirector@gmail.com with a description of your event idea and a time you would like to run the event (between 8am Thursday and 3pm Sunday.)
Elder Entertainment Returning To BGF
CABS is proud to announce the return of Elder Entertainment to this year's Buckeye Game Fest.
Based in Louisville, KY, Elder Entertainment specializes in running live-action role-playing events based on the horror universe of H.P Lovecraft, as well as events using the Dread system, which requires players to pull blocks from an increasingly unstable Jenga tower to achieve their goals.
Those of you who attended last year's Buckeye Game Fest likely heard about their highly successful events, including the Sunday morning kid-friendly LARP.
Elder Entertainment has offered events at both Origins and GenCon in previous years. This will be Elder's second appearance at BGF.
Information on times and descriptions of individual events will be made available once they are finalized.
Wargames for Sale
CABS President Pete Stein, in cooperation with Librarian Nathan Morse, have removed some of the older, less-played wargames from the library to make room for newer titles. These games will be sold at the World Boardgaming Championship auction, which is a solid market for wargame enthusiasts.
Before going to WBC, the Board would like to extend the opportunity to CABS members to purchase some of these games. All games for sale are listed on Google Docs. All proceeds from the sales of these games (both to members and at WBC) will go into the CABS Library fund for purchase of new games.
All transactions for these games must be completed by August 1. If you would like to purchase any of these games or have any questions regarding condition and components, please contact Pete Stein at firstname.lastname@example.org.
