Glad you made it back, Handy! I was starting to wonder what the hell happened to you, heheh. I'm super jealous that you went on a trip long enough to make me wonder what the hell happened to you. I hope you have some good pictures!
Let's see - yes, as some pointed out, the 2E KS Oct 21. Also, I think that Gary Con event submission has opened. If you submit 12 hours (or more) of events by October 31st, you "get a uniquely designed GC IX GM t-shirt. This shirt is only available to GMs and will not be for sale at the convention."
