So Long 2016, Hello 2017!

So Long 2016, Hello 2017!


Thanks to everybody who came out for our epic New Year’s Eve party and helped us bid a farewell – fond or otherwise – to 2016! For those of you who missed the fun, here are a few highlights:

The 2016 Meeple Madness Challenge is complete! Many embarked upon the challenge. Some fell by the wayside early on. Some petered out agonizingly close to the finish line. About a third of the entrants showed their true mettle and proved that they are indeed Meeple enough!

Everyone who successfully completed the challenge will be receiving a commemorative 2016 Meeple Madness Challenge fleece. The fleeces are being ordered this week – if you completed the challenge but have not yet provided your preferred fleece size, please let us know as soon as possible. More information will be available as soon as we know when the fleeces will be delivered.

Everyone who successfully completed the challenge was also entered into a drawing for the Grand Prize, a two night stay at Ravenwood Castle! The Grand Prize winner is Lisa Bricker! Congratulations Lisa, have fun storming the castle!

While the 2016 Challenge is behind us, a new year starts a new challenge! Sign up for the 2017 Meeple Madness Challenge now!

The new year brings one other change as well, an adjustment to our operating hours. As of the first of the year, the Malted Meeple will be closed on Sundays. All other operating hours will remain the same.

Thank you again for your patronage and friendship during 2016, we look forward to serving you throughout 2017!
