Re: THE MAACA DAILY NEWS! Your daily read about YOU,the members!

It would appear I'll be off of work for quite a while awaiting a new hip in the fall.....anyone coming down to The Guelph area, who needs a pinball fix, just send me a message. Most days I'll be in the mancave garage puttering on the herd.
