Walt's joins the collective....

Post  Ravenseye on Sat Aug 15, 2009 12:33 am

Hey everyone,

I wanted to take a few minutes and introduce myself, and the people I work for, Walt's Hobby!
www.walts-hobby.com

I am Mike. If you've come into the store and gotten help with the modeling stuff we sell, more than likely, it was I who helped you. I am the short guy with glasses. I am also a gamer. I have been playing/participating in Games Workshops little money making enterprises for longer than I'd like to admit. At least since Dark Future and the original Lost and the Damned book came out....I absolutely love the game (I can't stand Games Workshop...but, I've been with 'em forever, and damned if I can give it up...)

The reason I've been invited to the board by Papa Nurgle, is that I am starting open gaming at our store on Monday Nights! We would be thrilled to have you come to our shop and use the huge amount of room we have to blast one another into bits! I would love for this to become something of a regular thing! I have a few guys that paint and play historical minis that have been coming over for the last month now and am very happy that they have been!

Now, I invite all of you to our shop! I hope you will be pleased with our store, and if there is anything I can do to help you enjoy your hobby any more, please ask!!!

Our shop is simple to get to....
1) Get on 690, If you are in the city, get on 690W, if you are from the B'ville/Liverpool area, get on 690E.
2) Get off at Exit 5.
3) Take three right hand turns.
4) Get out of car and come on in!

Our Hours:
Saturday: 10am-5pm
Sunday: 11am-5pm
Monday: 9am-9pm
Tuesday: 9am-9pm
Wednesday: 9am-6pm
Thursday: 9am-6pm
Friday: 9am-9pm
These are summer hours. From September to April, we stay open on Wed/Thu 'til 9pm.

We have just started (again!!) carrying Games Workshop in our store. We do not have a lot yet...but, with your support this will change!

I would love to see you guys stopping by the shop!

Thank you and I am looking forward to meeting and getting to know all of you!
-Mike, the Game Geek in charge at Walt's!

Thank you everyone that showed up tonight. You all (including you too Mike) gave me plenty of advice in starting 40k. If you need raw materials for terrain building please feel free to let any of us at the store know.

Heads Up People.

Post  Ravenseye on Sat Aug 29, 2009 10:49 pm

This week, we will be getting around 10 boards to make tables out of.

I don't think that they will be at the shop on Monday, but, they will be there this week sometime.

That is all...

Please return to your regularly scheduled thread, already in progress...

working today until roughly six, but i think cass myself and maybe dave/ryan will be coming up to Walts today to check it out, also gonna see what I can do about helping set up those boards into real tables if you guys could use the help. The more places for the kids to meet and play the better I say so I am all in for volunteering time etc.

Thank you guys for walking me through my first match. It doesn't seem nearly as intimidating as i had built up in my head. For those of you that have not come down to visit we have lots and lots of raw material and we will be getting even more this week. I'll make sure to get some more hot glue sticks and toothpicks. I saw the 1 and 2 inch pink foam at Home Depot but i'm still looking for 1/2 and 1/4 inch.

Mike will be getting the 6x4 boards this week so hopefully by monday we'll have 10-12 tables ready to play. With race night being between seasons right now, anyone is welcome to come down anytime and work on terrain if they want. Mondays and Tuesday until 9pm (8:30 start clean up), Wednesday and Thursday until 6pm, Friday until 9pm, Saturday 10-5pm and Sunday 11-5pm.

Once you get on 690 its pretty easy. Get off at Exit 5 (State Fair Blvd/ Van Vleck Rd.) take a right...cross over the train tracks....take first right on to Dwight Park....first right into the parking lot.

I'm sorry you got lost on the way to the shop man!!

The easiest directions I can give goes thusly:

Get on 690 however you can....
If you connect to it via the thruway, or from Auburn/Liverpool/Baldwinsville, it'll be 690 East, get off exit 5.
If you are coming from Jamesville/Dewitt/East Syracuse, it'll be 690 West, get off exit 5.

Take three rights starting with the exit, we should be the third one.

First Right: Stop sign on offramp.
Second Right: Across the street from a Round, White building with the P&C grocery store logo on it.
Third Right: Our Parking Lot.

That'll get ya there.

Look forward to seeing ya!!

-Mike
