This post was taken from the BW 8th Anniversary post by AFA Representative, Mr. Howie.

I am pleased to have been offered the opportunity to participate in Blowing Wind's anniversary party, and I hope that my impromptu presentation served the group well.

Remember to never go to war without your battle kits and that testing does not have to be intimidating with our anonymous testing in
4 easy steps.

Tues - 18:30hr to 20:15hr;
