GAME ON MANITOBA!
Wanted to write a quick thanks to all of our amazing sponsors, GMs, and volunteers who made JimCon 5, an entire weekend of tabletop gaming, possible! And, of course, thanks to everyone who came out!
We would also like to thank the 501st Legion and the Epilepsy and Seizure Association of Manitoba for joining us this year, and especially everyone who donated to support their awesome causes. The support this year was truly remarkable, we were blown away by your generosity.
Please check Jim-Con Table Top Games Convention photo albums on Facebook for more pictures from the weekend and the Wall of Fame photos which will be posted in the next few days!!
We hope you all had fun and that we'll see you all again at JimCon 6!
