First After School Event

I just got home from my first after school military history in miniature event.  24 eager kids showed up, including four girls.  I had to tables set up.  I was able to get most of it ready in the 45 minutes of my planning period.  The boards I purchased worked out real well and I was incredibly pleased.

The Seven Years War game pretty much ran itself.  Several of the kids have taken my summer class and knew the rules well enough to teach them to the newbies.  I took the ACW game and had 14 rookies.  They caught on pretty quickly and everyone seemed to have a great time.  We were able to clean everything up and be out the door by 7:50 P.M.  All in all, I would say it was a tremendous success for having so many kids and a relatively short time to play.

Here are a few pictures:
