Just received notice that the player intending to return in October has run headlong into a number of things in Real Life(tm) that make regular participation unlikely. I have wished this player well and made clear that the invitation remains open even if only able to stop in once in a while.
While I am bummed out about losing yet another player, I am in touch with some other folks and hopefully at least a couple will be interested and able to join in so the game can go on.
Looks like scheduling for one of the two remaining players is a bit over-booked for early October so the next chance we appear to have for a session might be October 15th. Keeping my fingers crossed.
