Pokemon & Magic the Gathering

The recreation department has created a Pokemon and Magic the gathering night here in the city.  We have partnered with Gamesville Tabletop and they bring their experts out to help run battles and facilitate the games!  They also bring merchandise for purchase!  Our first event was this past Thursday and welcomed an attendance of over 30 players.   The parents and participants asked that we bring this event back so we have decided to host another Pokemon/Magic night June 8th from 530-830 pm at the Old School in High Springs next to the Police department (23760 NW 187th Ave High Springs FL 32643 ).  IF you could please forward this message to all of your players, friends, family etc to help spread the word  it would be very helpful.  If we have enough participants will be able to run this event all summer long!!
