This plan is set until the coronavirus deletes itself or our government remembers how to govern. Hopefully, we can safely play in-person. If you are interested in being a true gamer(and member), sign up and download Among Us. If you have Discord, that’s even better. We have a dedicated Discord server if you would like to join. The server has the club’s previous leaders and some of their friends.
