 [DRAFT] View From the Booth  v.2 

Dec 31, 2017

  Welcome to the December edition of the official newsletter. We hope to keep everyone informed of all that is happening in our gaming scene, with a top-down look at events, leagues, forum happenings and Discord chatter. The view from the broadcast booth is often worse than some cheap seats in the arena, but journalists require a sweeping vantage point to see everything that is happening in the game. It seemed a suitable name for a newsletter that hopes to provide a bird's eye view of NHL94 and all of it's retro hockey siblings, so take a minute to get caught up with this edition of  View From the Booth 

Announcement of Bud of the Year? @slapshot67 Forum thread.

Please pay no mind - this is simply a draft for a year-end edition of the newsletter. 

Though - since you're here and reading, if you have any comments or ideas, this would be the place to share them.

@jer_33 Just for accuracy (sorry to nitpick lol) - Slapshot67 created the 32-team ROM, I really had nothing to do with it. And he should also get credit for helping out with my 2018 ROM since he does all of the graphics work :-) 

Thanks bud, this is great!
