Looking into February’s kid-friendly activities

Hood River Hobbies has started a Friday evening “Junior Magic League” at the store from 5-6 p.m. Teens and tweens are invited to play Magic the Gathering while learning deck building and strategy. Cost to join the league is $15 — players will be set up with cards — and then $5 per subsequent visit, which includes a booster pack. Parents need to sign a consent form the first time their child attends. For more information, visit www.hoodriverhobbies.com.
