    Press Release:

    Wanted to let all you gamer pilots and ship captains know that Registration for Origins Game Fair 2015 Events is now live online on the Origins Game Fair 2015 Events Page!

    The Buckeye Gamers in Flight
    , The Wings of Glory Aerodrome and The Sails of Glory Anchorage are proud to be hosting 23 separate events over 5 days... including Wings of Glory WWI, Wings of Glory WWII, and Sails of Glory. Events will be run by Aerodrome members Oberst Hajj, 7eat51, CappyTom, Jager, Black Sheep One, The Cowman (that's me), and Skafloc, this year's Aerodrome Lend Lease participant. (Those would be our Aerodrome screen names... be sure to check out the site!) (If you register on the Aerodrome or Anchorage site, please list "The Cowman" as your referring member.)

    While online Event registration has just opened, online Badge registration may be closing soon... and our events have limited seating and are sure to fill up quickly. We are giving away a ton of prizes and freebies this year! Basically, if you are looking to join us at the convention, I highly recommend that you jump on it as soon as possible, and avoid the lines at Registration!!!!!

    Totally agree and sympathize. What you are trying to produce on such a scale is very difficult. As a mass producer from scratch, a production engineer,
