Not yet.  Just before I moved a couple of months back, I gave 'em
information on joining that roster.  Of course, as I'm still working my
way out of boxes, I haven't had much chance to follow up on that with

I know of two within a couple of miles of each other - Gameboard at
Hamilton Place Mall (lotsa stock, no demo space) and The Dragon Caves on
Lee Highway (little stock, good demo space), both in Chattanooga, TN
around ZIP code 37421.  I need to run by those soon anyway; I have some
other news I need to alert them to....

I wouldn't mind contributing to such.  I'm pretty new to the Demo Rabbit
world, but I've been a Steve Jackson Games MIB for almost a year now and
have learned a few tricks in that time....

Speaking of which, I turned in a report 10/29 for an event that took
place 10/27-10/29, and the hotel was kind enough to fax the report card
in for me.  However, the point approval (or disapproval) hasn't gone
through yet.  Is this normal, or should I be concerned?  SuperFRED's
already sent my report to this list....
