Hotel Rooms for Game Masters

I need a few good Game Masters to be Guinea Pigs for me.

I'm trying to set up a system where I can provide shared hotel space for Game Masters that run 5 or more games (20 hours).
For now, I want to restrict this to games that we are certain will draw in 5-6 players or more. LFR and PFS are the most likely candidates.

If you are interested in getting a free hotel room on Friday and Saturday night, and are willing to run a lot of games, contact me and let me know.

Asking the Obvious

Last year for this convention, I was making all the decisions, and doing most of the heavy lifting for pre-con planning. I don't want to in any way overlook the amazing efforts put on by my team during the con, or what they did beforehand, but I think I can safely say I took on the lion's share of the work in the planning phases. I intentionally did this because I knew in future years, I would need to be able to direct others to perform those same tasks. I would make a very poor leader, if I didn't understand the task at hand.

The Countdown Begins

Hey folks!

Welcome to a brand new year. As you can see, we aren't quite up and running yet. It's only January 2nd, and I'm already behind schedule. Don't worry though. The site will open for business sometime this weekend. Come back on Monday and we'll be ready for you.

Closed for the Season

OK, folks. All the bodies have been counted, and we are officially closed for the season. We'll be opening for more business on January 1st, 2013.

I placed the order for Child's Play Charity to benefit the Women and Children's Hospital of Buffalo, NY.
I selected as many items as I could afford from their Amazon Wish List, in order of priority, as determined by the hospital.
Ended up adding $11 of my own cash to cover the cost of shipping for all the new toys for the girls and boys.

Thank you to everyone who donated.
