We have Gamecon here in Memphis the weekend of 9/30 - 10/2 that you may want to avoid conflicts with the Birmingham event you are planning. We would welcome you to attend, it started as a 1 day event of about 45 people just a few years back. I believe we are expecting 500+ this year and we draw from all over the Southeast. (Also, and more importantly, Bama has a home game against Vandy the weekend of the 8th).

I love GameCon Memphis - been there the last 3 years. No way we will conflict with that.

This year I think i will just demo games instead of having a booth up - I get to play more that way!

I lived in Birmingham (Homewood, almost across the street from where you guys meet) for 4 years. Glad you guys have a ballooning gaming group going down there. I knew Huntsville was fairly active, Montgomery much less so. I don't know if anything goes on in south Alabama, where me and my wife are from (both ends).
