Hello All,

Well, it's been a while since we've posted anything, and there's a reason for that.  This past year has been quite busy for all of us at the NSBGS.  Unfortunately, all of this activity was in our personal lives, and as such we haven't been able to do much on the society front.  That said, it is our hope that this coming year we will be able to get back on track.  To that end, I have a few announcements.

First of all, I am sad to say that there will be no Boarpocalypse marathon this year.  When the dust finally settled and we were all able to devote ourselves to working on NSBGS tasks again, it was simply too close to the proposed marathon date to pull everything together.  This, coupled with our continued issues in getting people to commit to the marathon, led to us making the tough call and cancelling the marathon for this year.  It is now our intention to focus our efforts on planning the 2016 marathon instead.

Another change, and one that you've likely noticed, is that we've moved our NSBGS page to blogger.  This is for a number of reasons, but predominantly because it has a cleaner look.  We're also hoping to transition our BoardGasm page in this manner at some point in the near future.  Our marathon page will remain mostly the same, mainly because of the custom software we use to run the marathon

Finally, I wanted to note that we will still be having a Summer BoardGasm this year.  We are currently working out the date and time, at which point I will announce that information here.

That's all I have for now.  Stay tuned here for further announcements, and in the meantime remember to play more games!
