    Hello Jackson Gamers!
    I have recently moved here, and am excited to see an active group into historic wargaming! I’m primarily into naval historical games (especially the Cold War Era), and BattleTech (Not historical I know, just always loved the game for some reason), but will play anything that’s not Games Workshop, and hope you will be kind enough to get in touch with me to let me know how to get started with your group.
    Thanks,
    Grant Bender
