MACE 2021: Post Con Thanks

From Facebook:

November 16, 2021 – Jeff Smith

Wow, what a weekend. Even with a smaller turnout (estimating 425-450) I had a blast. The energy was there and I think people were excited to be back among friends and playing some games. It felt good to see so many friends and hang out. I hope you had as much fun as I did. I do want to thank some folks for all they did.

First and most importantly, my wife Karen, without her This would not be possible. She is the sane one who handles the business side and keeps me from spending any excess money on more games.

Thanks to Ron for keeping up with OGRe and all the Game Schedules. To all the GMs, we could not do this with out you. I appreciate your willingness to run games for us.

Thank you to the dealers for offering some great stuff this year, to Kim, Patrick, Stephen, Erik plus the kids for running the Grinning Goblin.

Special thanks to James Floyd Kelly , Scotty McFarland, Bill Buchanan and all the Crafters who participated in the Crafting Challenge this year.

To Karen Montgomery, thank you for being willing to take photos and help with the crafting contest. A big thanks to the Hilton for letting us come back and last put not least to all the gamers who braved the weekend. We do this for you. Thank You, Thank You, Thanks to You!

MACE 2021 Layout

Please note a few things on this map.

(1) Red Dot (Midway room) is where paid/paying attendees go if they want to pick up their paid badge or pay for their badge.  It is also where the Grinning Goblin is going to be. (Red for Registration)

(2) Green Dot (outside Glenwaters room) is where GMs go to pick up their badges and sign in.  It is also where gaming registration is and where players go to sign up for games if they can’t do it on their own (you can sign up all weekend on OGRe with an activated account).  There will be an onsite activation code for those that pay at the door. (Green for GMs or Gaming)
