I'd like to take minute and promote our gaming con we are trying to start.

A local retailer (The Ludus Machine) and South Bend Gameing Association are trying to start a game, anime and comic book convention in South Bend IN for all of those in the Michiana area. Of course, those outside of Southern Michigan and Northern Indiana areas are welcome to attend as well.

We want to make this a lasting event that will serve the gamers in the area well so every dollar helps. We have plans to run a ton a free demos, several CCG and boardgame tournaments as well as seminars and even a costume/cosplay contest.

The emphasis is that since YOU are funding it that means this is YOUR con. Tell us what you want to see there and we will do our best to get it.

Also, if any of you would like to become a sponsor, a vendor or would just like to help out with any of the events or panels feel free to contact us.

Just an update. River-Con has reached it's minimum funding level. That means the Con will happen. Right now we have over 60 vendors signed up with plenty more on reserve. If we can get over $6,000 then we should be able to get the larger convention hall and be able to offer space for about 100 more vendors as well as tons of space for more demos and events.

Thanks to everyone that has already contributed. We couldn't have done it without you. Don't forget to share it with everyone you know.

There are only a few days left on our Kickstarter for the Michiana (Southern Michigan and Northern Indiana) River-Con. Look over the different pledge levels to see what is best for you. You can get a basic badge (including parking) into the Con for only $15, a table at Artist Alley for only $40 or you could even become a "Founder Vendor" for just $300. It's up to you.

Too bad. I live nearby and would have gone for sure.
