welcome to the forums. i hope you find some gamers in your area, or online.
may i respectfully suggest that you don't cleartext your email? we have had an increase in spammers lately, and they may be combing the boards for emails. perhaps something like: [ignore all spaces in the following email, and replace all number words with the actual number] van rooy eighty-eight at gmail dot com.
in any case, good gaming, and luck to you in finding a good group! =D
