As if the message to Pennsylvania wasn't enough...

Rumor has it John Spangler, co-director from Lexington Club 637, has brought forth from the mighty Bluegrass State a tentative I-64 Morehead smackdown challenge in October.
The West Virginia native should know better...although I recall taking a mighty beating myself the last time one of John's Kentucky colleagues played me at Java Joint.
As always, we're open for Fall festivities in Morehead in October, or perhaps Ashland.
We'll just have to wait and see what the planning committee comes up with!
Good luck to everyone in Dayton next week!

Pennsylvania and West Virginia Friends Unite for Smackdown!

The mighty members of Club 620 and 767 competed with vigor Saturday July 18th in a WV vs PA tournament, dubbed the "Smackdown".
6 members from each state went head to head through 6 rounds. After an exhilirating day West Virginia's Club Director from #767, Brad Mills, proudly hoisted the first annual traveling WV vs PA Smackdown trophy and after a team picture of the collective nerdy bunch we all headed home.
We all had a great time of fun and fellowship, and as usual Terry taught me a new word or two (e.g. CHANTAGE= blackmail) on her way to my sound thumping.
Panera bread was a fun atmosphere, the food was great, and it made for a relaxing and blessed Saturday.
Thanks to all the organizers for their hard work and dedication to the game we love so much.
And to Andrew, the most well behaved and smartest 4-year-old I've ever met, I am sure one day you will be facing off against PA with us as well if your parents have anything to do with it.
Stay tuned for future announcement regarding Huntington Club 767 next meeting at Java Joint in August. Due to schedules we are most likely going to go to one meeting per month.
