And then there's UBCon, my hometown show! Taking place on the beautiful campus of UB North, this convention is now in its 21st year, and it just keeps getting stronger. This year, we're planning on running a Savage Saturday Night as part of the festivities, so come out and get your game on!

Ah ... at the end of Spring break for the kids. I won't have to rush to get there this year.

So...any interest in a SW Licensee participating in some way? I'm in Upstate NY.

Details on the show can be found at http://www.ubcon.org/. I have not yet submitted the event details yet, but it looks like the submission form is available.

I'm in the Ithaca area, so UB would be a few hours away.

I co-wrote Caladon Falls, so I'd want to run that. On behalf of Savage Mojo, I'd have some prize support (and can share - we could talk details later in PM).

I see a vending area possible, but no details. Depending on their arrangement for things, I might see about working with you and having a table.

Let me know what you think!

Cool! Don't forget to check out Running GAGG and SimCon. We'll have a presence at GAGG, and there's usually a game or two at Simcon as well.

Sounds great! Let's chat!

Any plans for a Savage Saturday? Or should I just start entering my events for the con.

I totally think we should. Go ahead and enter your other events, but keep the Saturday night slot open. I need to figure out what I'm going to run ...

And GAGG is only, what, three weeks away?! ACK!!!

Yeah, I'm scrambling as well. All these ideas for props, and so little time to get them ready. :-)

Gotta get my events posted ... maybe today? Any further word on Savage Saturday Night? It's not posted yet ... I'm wondering if we can sign up as a Co-GM once it's there.

I just dropped them a line to verify that they received the event. I spoke with Spike about it at GAGG, and apparently the con director had some personal issues to iron out at the beginning of the semester, so hopefully that will be cleared up soon.

I see the Savage Saturday event there, but no way to join as a GM.

*sigh* Yes, that is correct. SARPA's game registration system is no way as advanced as GAGG's, more's the pity. However, interested GM's should contact me, and I can ask the Con Director to add GM names and game descriptions to the Event Listing.

I'm also waiting to hear back on their GM program. Looks like they're going through the UB ticket office this year, so we'll have to see how that pans out.

Hey, y'all, UBCon Event Registration is live!! If you're interested in running a game, make sure you note that it should be in the "Savage Worlds Area"; that way, we can get all our games in the same vicinity to make everyone's life easier.

And we're still looking for interested GMs to run events for Savage Saturday Night! Drop me a line and let me know what you'll be running, and I'll have the con director add it to the grid.

We'll see you there!

Other then the Savage Saturday Night event, I have my events entered for UBCon. Too bad you can't see the time/day for the events already listed.

As a reminder, UBCon is happening this week! There's a bunch of Savage games on the schedule, so sign on up and drop on by! We'll see you there!
