Thank you to everyone who came out this past Saturday to make the Clobber Cancer event a success.  The gaming community includes some of the most generous people I know and this weekend proved that yet again.  Despite a lower than expected turn-out, we had a good crew of people playing WARMACHINE and HORDES to benefit cancer research and treatment at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.  In the end, everyone had a good time socializing and gaming, people got some cool prizes, and we did a good thing.  We raised a total of $300 in an afternoon – less than we hoped but a good start none the less.

Before I sign off to start working on the next event, I’d like to thank a few folks who helped make this a success:

  • Thank you Craig for driving out to help me co-pilot the event and chat gaming while others pushed models.
  • Thank you Steve for hand-tying a dozen paracord dice bags to give away to participants.  Everyone liked them a lot.
  • Thank you to Games & Gears for the wonderful GenCon 2014 exclusive tavern we had as one of our prizes.
  • Thank you Privateer Press for making a great game we all enjoy.

And now, some pictures:
