The weekend Society meetings normally held on two Saturdays of each month at the Columbia Library, starting shortly after 9:00 am, although dates may vary due to library schedule conflicts. They are intended to be games that take more time than available in an afternoon or evening. These are game such as "Here I Stand" or one of the 18XX family of games. The players who participate on a regular basis rotate in proposing a game for each meeting, which they commit to bring and/or lead. The Library is currently open but with with social distancing restrictions, but meeting rooms for group events including our Saturday gaming are closed until further notice. These longer games are currently being played played at Charlie Ward's house until the Library meeting rooms re-open. Because they are not limited by meeting room availability they may be played on either Saturday or Sunday depending on interested players' availability.
