The following is a list of the generous sponsors who are donating to the 2010 Spring Gaming Hoopla, being held in Lake Geneva, WI. The Hoopla is a boardgame focused convention which will be donating all proceeds to the American Cancer Society.

You can find out more about the Gaming Hooplas here:

www.gaminghoopla.com

Here are links to a general thread about the Hoopla, and to the geeklist of currently scheduled tournaments and "learn-to-play" sessions:

Event List: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/51090/2010-spring-gami...

Even if you can't come, here's another great way to support the Hoopla and American Cancer Society if you would like to:

In addition to the sponsors, several of the staff are donating time, money, and a whole lot of effort in the planning and running of the convention

We also have a great group of volunteer judges who are taking some of their time to run events at the Hoopla. Thanks to all of you for doing this.

Thank you to all of you and to those who volunteered to help out.

I think that it is important for the board-gaming community to show our appreciation to companies like this by supporting them with our purchases. Please consider these companies the next time you purchase games, as it is our patronage that allows them to be so generous.

We've known the good folks at Mayfair Games for quite some time. They have been very generous, and are good people to boot. Thanks Mayfair! Check out the Settlers of Catan 3D event on Saturday night at the Hoopla.

A new sponsor for the Gaming Hooplas in 2010, AEG has generously donated several games for our raffle. They have a bunch of newer great games out, including The Adventurers, Rush n Crush, and Thunderstone. Look for their events at the Hoopla to play a few of their games.

Out of the Box has been on board as a sponsor since we started asking companies to be sponsors. They have always been very generous, and being that they are located in Wisconsin, I am more than happy to throw my support behind them.

Who doesn't like Rio Grande Games, really? Jay has been very generous as a two time sponsor. Join in the Dominion tournament, Galaxy Trucker, Puerto Rico, or other RGG events at the Hoopla.

I couldn't find a great way to list this, so I picked the game pictured.

DriveThru RPG is a first time sponsor. Be sure to check your welcome packet for a special offer from them! DriveThru also donated some items for our raffle.

For the first time, the Gaming Hoopla will feature a vendor. The gang from The GameBoard will be there both days and have games available for sale. They are also making a very generous donation to the Hoopla/ACS, so bring full wallets to support them!
