Delaware Valley Get-Together - 2006

A bit of fun for our tenth birthday!

The Delaware Valley, USA chapter of ICC held a social get-together on 16 September 2006 at La Vigna Ristorante in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Bill Girimonti made a surprise appearance at the event and helped celebrate our organization's 10th birthday in our own private dungeon. As you can see from the photos, all in attendence had a great time!
