GADcon and BFGCon

Happy New Year!

Anybody else attending either Gadcon (Aberdeen, MD) or BFGCon (Frederick, MD) this March? I'm planning on going to both and may run an ASSH game. Hopefully play one as well.

I'm thinking of running Rats in the Wall. How does that work for con play?

Re: GADcon and BFGCon

Hmmm, didn't know about either, but BFGCon is only 45 min from me: I'd love to play some AS&SH there, and my son would be in, too. You should do it. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/cute.png

My goal was to attend both conventions.  I would normally attend Gary Con but my daughter is giving birth within a week of that great event so I am staying within driving distance.  I had not signed up to run anything as yet.  I wanted to attend first to see how things worked but.......

BFGCon reached out to Jeff to see if he could rustle up some Refs to run AS&SH. I’m going to run a couple games.

Re: GADcon and BFGCon

Yes, if any of you would be willing to run a game of AS&SH at BFGCon, they are seeking our referees! I think it's fantastic that they would reach out to us looking to add some AS&SH to their menu. Please consider running one game if you're in the area!

Re: GADcon and BFGCon

Also, keep in mind that Paul, the RPG organizer, informed me of the following:

We can offer a 1 day pass for each 4- hour slot that is volunteered.

I have Rats in the Wall approved for Gadcon and will see if I can get a slot for BFGCon. I certainly want to play in your game!

Re: GADcon and BFGCon

I registered for my son and myself this morning, but actual event sign-up isn't active yet: will be joining whatever AS&SH games are being run. Thanks gents!

Thanks Handy! You are very kind. This is sort of a Ptarmigan II with all new adventures! I hope it will hold up!

Re: GADcon and BFGCon

I submitted a proposal to BFGCon to run Rats in the Wall. Let's see what they say.

Hey tomas, I saw your game posted for GADCon but it did not have a GM listed and so no one can sign up!  You may want to see what the issue is!  Thanks.

Thanks, I signed up for notification when games were available to register for, but didn't see anything: headed there now!
