Excerpted from an email on the Tempest Mailing list:

Sit Down.

Sit down right now.

Karen is pregnant.

She is in her 12th week of pregnancy. She went into the hospital with a kidney stone and leaves .... well pregnant. All are doing fine except the kidney stone. Pete and Karen are both in a state of shock over this not knowing how this could have happened.

Here is their time line:
Early July - New baby
Late August or Early September their son (Alex - Who is now 6'-2") leaves for college.

This means Shore Leave is out of the question for them. Understandably so. This also means that there will be some changes to the spring Paintball Game. I do not know what these changes will be at this point as all of this is ongoing. Pete will be sending out those announcements as they are made. Rest assured, this does NOT mean the game will be canceled. Stayed tuned for more info, and please be patient.

To clarify some concerns some of you may have. I hate to use cliches, but there have been some really big strides in medicine during the last decade. Things that were a big problem 10 years ago, are not today.

All is good.

All is well.

Now, calling this post "Tempest Events" is a bit misleading, as I think the next official Tempest event will probably be Spring Paintball. Still, there are a few things coming up a number of Tempest members are likely to be attending...

Next Saturday, 14 October 2006, PDQ Games will be putting on the 14th Distant Mirror LARP. That'll be at the usual location, the Fleetwood Museum at the Vermuele Community Center.

New Community

At paintball this weekend, a few members suggested we could use a livejournal community for the Tempest.

Here is is, then. Anonymous commenting is allowed, so, while you'd still need a livejournal account to make posts, anyone can comment on without joining.

Have fun with this.
