An Update on the Gygax Statue

Posted in Uncategorized by Michael "Chgowiz" on October 22, 2009

ENWorld is reporting on a letter received from Gail Gygax regarding the Gary Gygax statue:

While I can’t tell you all the details of the memorial – if approved – will be great – the few people that know the concept are wild about it – so I am excited.

For those of you going to GaryCon in March 2010, I’m sure this will be a huge topic of discussion.

  2. Gygax Family Memorial dba Gary Con said, on February 24, 2010 at 12:11 am

    This letter is in response to the confusion that has been brought to our attention by many people between the difference from “Gygax Family Memorial” and “Gygax Memorial Fund”. This letter can be printed, copied for internet use and published by either for availability to anyone in whole in its original format.
    “Gygax Family Memorial” and “Gygax Memorial Fund” are two (2) separate non-profit organizations, not affiliated with each other, honoring father and husband, E. Gary Gygax.
    Established in 2009, “Gygax Family Memorial” dba “Gary Con”, is owned by Gary’s daughter, M. Elise’ Gygax-Cousino, and operated by Lucion P. Gygax, M. Elise Gygax-Cousino and Bill Cousino with contributions from siblings; Ernest G. Gygax, Heidi J. Gygax and Cindy (Gygax) Shu, and our friends and fellow gamers. Alexander H. Gygax has been asked to be a participant, but so far has declined.
    Established 2010 “Gygax Memorial Fund” is operated by Gary’s widow Gail Gygax, with assistance from board members Jody Mikkelsen and Jim Ward.
    “Gygax Family Memorial”, and “Gygax Memorial Fund”, common interest is that they want to see a monument placed in Lake Geneva to honor their father and late husband, E. Gary Gygax.
    At no time has “Gygax Family Memorial”, “Gary Con”, the children or people involved in such, supported or conducted business with “Gygax Memorial Fund”. Only at such time that the City of Lake Geneva has approved a sight, and construction started for a monument by “Gygax Memorial Fund” will “Gygax Family Memorial” contribute any funds collected by their original monument proposal presented at Gary Con I in March of 2009.
    In regards to “Gary Con”, “Gygax Family Memorial” dba “Gary Con” is a gaming convention honoring Gary Gygax . This is the opportunity for all the children of Gary

    Gygax to give back to the gaming community and the fans of his works. All of the proceeds received through donations, convention registration, and fund raisers, go directly to support future “Gary Con” conventions at this time. When, and if, there is progress on a monument, any available funds remaining will go towards the monument. If “Gygax Family Memorial” does not see any timely progression towards a monument, fund raising efforts will start again towards our original monument proposal presented at “Gary Con I”.
