We Interrupt This Broadcast...

So this happened...
Join the World of Tanks North American Community Team as we get a look inside the new American Heritage Museum in Hudson, Massachusetts.

...exclusive preview inside the not yet opened museum housing some of the most notable tanks in the history of the world, including tanks like the IS-2. Special Guest Nicholas "The Chieftain" Moran from the YouTube series Inside the Chieftain's Hatch will be in company at this event. We will be providing a meal in the form of Pizza during this gathering.
Had an email the other day, from The Chieftain himself asking if I would be free to attend the aforementioned preview of the American Heritage Museum up in Hudson.

Why yes, I believe my schedule is open. (Me in the background, "Saturday! Cancel everything!" But why? "Tanks, they have tanks! And an Me-109G! Clear my schedule!")

In actuality I had nothing planned, so I responded in the affirmative.

Did I mention that there would be tanks? And a German fighter plane?

And pizza!

After action report to follow...

  9. Very cool! Have a piece with pepperoni on it for me. And take lots of pictures...so I can learn more tank stuff. :)

    And Saturday's weather isn't supposed to be too great, so you shouldn't have to do your Honey-do garden stuff yet...good timing!!

  11. I've been watching the Chieftain do preview vids of the museum. This place is on my bucket list. Been to the AF Museum in Dayton three times and that place never gets old. BTW, any idea if Nick's foil, Sofilien, will be in attendance ? She laid a good one on him while they were perusing the inside of the Stug III that gave him pause while she just smiled at him. What a little pixie.....
