Gary Con!

Posted in Uncategorized by Victor Raymond on March 22, 2010

On behalf of TARGA, I made the trip to Lake Geneva to Gary Con to present a check for $350 to Luke Gygax for the Gygax Family Memorial Fund. This was an amazing opportunity to help support Gary Con, and further TARGA’s stated purpose “to assist in promoting traditional gaming, recruiting new players into the fold, and providing organizational support for judges.” If this ensures that there is a Gary Con 3 next year, then we are definitely doing our job.

Here are some photos from the event; I had an absolutely wonderful time, and look forward to being there next year. Thanks to everyone who helped make this donation happen, including Gene R. for the photos, and specifically Michael Shorten, without whom this would not have taken place.

    I *think* that’s Frank Mentzer in the first pic, with Tim Kask in the baseball cap waiting patiently to start auctioning things off in pics #2 and #3. Mark Siefert from Milwaukee Traditional Gaming is on the right in the blue shirt, near Luke Gygax. That’s Allan Grohe’s right ear in the last two pictures. 🙂

    I do believe you are correct. Great to have TARGA represented at GaryCon; well done all round!
