...Faster than I thought it would.
Who knew a year could fly by so quickly? It was just a year ago that I mentioned to Zack Bookwalter from Galactic Games & Things that I wanted to run a game convention. “That’s a great idea.” He said between customers. That was all I needed to begin planning Noble Con.
I’ll be the first to admit it hasn’t always been easy. Dan and I have been on the other side of the isle at game conventions – as a store, running a booth or just hanging out – but to actually step up and do this is a whole lot different than selling for a few hours and going back to the hotel to crash. It has become a life style. I can’t remember the last time I had a conversation with someone that didn’t include “have I told you about Noble Con?” Conventions are no long gone to just for fun and games. They are my new playground, used to introduce others to our convention – I don’t carry dice or game books, but flyers and business cards.
In a couple weeks we’re hitting another local convention - C4 Comic and Pop Culture Event on September 24th at Lincoln Trail College. If you haven’t heard of it – be sure to stop by and check it out. Dan will be running games and I’ll be…yep, you guessed it…. talking about Noble Con and handing out flyers.
I’ve just ordered the name badges and lanyards. We have tentative times set for the scheduled games, and I’ve finally hit a wall. After ten months I am willing to admit I need help. So, I’ve called in The Super Friends. That’s what I’m calling them. The list of volunteers who have offered me their time and energy to make Noble Con a success. If you feel the need to join The Super Friends, please shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll happily assign you a task. It won’t be anything too difficult – and hopefully it will be fun.
Noble, IL first and only all-gaming convention.
