Oldest Game on Sign-ups sheet?

published by TAHGC, 1961

Kudos to Joel Dalenberg of Missoula, Montana. We believe he has signed up for perhaps the oldest game we have yet seen to possible grace the gaming tables at CSW Expo 2017. We are talking about none other than TAGHC's Air Empire, pubilshed in 1961. How's that for a trip down Memory Lane?
