Thanks for putting up this list. My wife and I are going to the OwlCon for our first time this year. In fact, it will be our first con ever.

Protocon just directs you to the A & M gaming group. No sign of a con.

We have a monthly convention of boardgaming with some late night werewolfing with between 100 and 150 people every month at Dallas Games Marathon. Every third weekend of the month except for Nov and Dec when it is the 2nd Weekend.

You may wish to add this to the directory located here:

Board Game Convention and Event Calendar

By collecting events on a consolidated calendar we create more exposure for all events.

Also, I am sorry if I have already notified you of this calendar. My memory is not what it used to be.


Happy Gaming,
Matt
