    Well, at this point I think I should make it official: I'm not going to attend GaryCon this year. Jon and I are splitting our Black Blade convention appearances, with him attending GaryCon and GenCon, and me attending North TX RPG Con.

    I'm going to miss the many folks I've gamed and visisted with at GaryCon, and hope to return again next year, of course, but that's where things stand today. (It is possible, however unlikely, that some external funding may come through to allow me to attend, but I'm not counting on that at this time, and don't want to submit events and have folks planning their games around them, and then not be able to run them. So, I'm taking the more cautious approach atm).

    See you in 2013, hopefully! :D

    A real bummer, Allan! I had been looking forward to a third year of your Castle Greyhawk.

    No worries, Allan, your legend lives on! :D

    Maybe some of us knuckleheads can even figure out how to run Aliens in the bar, who knows?

    No grodog at Gary Con? Well, that just sucks.

    Yeah, don't remind me. Maybe we should get involved in the car race.

    Well damn, grodog-who-lives-in-the-same-town-as-me! Ironically, the twelve-hour-drive-away Gary Con is the only time I ever manage to see you!
    Nevertheless, I understand having to do as you must, so best wishes - hopefully next year.

    Hey Grodog, how much external funding would you need to make an appearance this year? I could use some advertising for my recent endeavors in publishing, and I believe your webpages and blogs would be a good fit. Drop me a line at [email protected] and mayhap we can work something out.

    I found out last night that our finances will be OK for me to attend this year, after-all. Thank you to those of you who made generous offers of support, which I'm quite thankful for, even if we didn't need them in the end :D

    That's good news! Do you hope to run any games, or will you just play?

    I'll be running some Castle Greyhawk AD&D 1e events, and some Aliens minis games, probably: I need to confer with Jon to see if there's room in the truck for the Aliens set-up (and with Chris that there's space for it).

    I just submitted four events: the Castle Greyhawk events are for 10 players, the Aliens for 15. Hopefully Chris has room for the Aliens game :D

    Thursday: 112602 grodog's Castle Greyhawk
    Friday: 214501 Aliens: Rescue Newt
    Saturday: 314501 Aliens: Hunt the Queen
    Sunday: 408601 grodog's Castle Greyhawk

    That's awesome news. I'll keep an eye open for your events, especially Castle Greyhawh. Hopefully I can arrange to get into one, but either way it is great that you are able to make it.

    Allan, do you know when these should be reflected in the event catalog? More importantly, do you know what time the Thursday Castle Greyhawk event will be held?
