Midwinter Gaming Convention

This weekend is a 4 day holiday from the office, so my plan is to work on preparing stuff for my booth at Midwinter Gaming Convention next month.

I'm really excited about the 2012 convention, since it has now moved to a much larger venue (The downtown Hyatt...fondly remembered by many from the days of GenCon being in Milwaukee at the MECCA/MEC). This will be my second year of vending at this convention, so I have a pretty good idea of what to expect. MGC was one of my best events of 2011, with a terrific con com and awesome attendees.

This year's convention programming includes a few different steampunk/dieselpunk LARPs, film screenings, various panels, TONS of gaming of various flavours, and more. (FYI: to keep up with new additions and conversation about the con, join the MGC page on Facebook) While I'll be missing a good portion of the daytime events because I'll be busy shilling my wares in the goblin's' room, this doesn't mean you have to (The discounted pre-registration rate for the weekend is still valid through midnight 12/31, BTW). I'm still going to have fun again in my booth, nattering with my fellow geekfolk, and I can go play in the evening.

Oh...I should also mention that MGC is doing a clothing drive for St. Vincent De Paul Society at the con. Toss an extra garment in your suitcase while packing for the convention and support a good cause!
