Vermincon: Con Review – Day 1
We arrived at Vermincon later than expected, and the booth was set up for the first time after the backdrop was painted. We were surprised and pleased at the growth of the convention over the last few years; Silver Gryphon has been coming to this convention for a few years in some form or function, and we are impressed with the way it is being handled this year. It is being held, as always in the Student Union on the University of South Dakota campus, which is a great space for a con of this size, and there’s other rooms that it expands to for war games. It’s a good convention to keep an eye on, especially if you’re within three or four hours of Vermillion, SD.
Kevin ran his Adventure in a Con last night and is working on getting it written and turned into an adventure before the end of the con! We have tapped on-site artist, Fredd Gorham to do a couple of pieces for us, so it’s possible we’ll have a publishable adventure before the close of the day on Sunday!
In addition to that, they are holding a raffle where they are donating 50% of the proceeds to the Michael Rohan Memorial Fund, which Kevin is obviously involved with. People are responding well to that, and it’s a huge honor to be listed as their charity of choice this year.
Things are going really well this year, we’re having a great time, and we’re looking forward to the rest of the con!
