** Posted by Geekery on behalf of the GHC organizers (Alex is a Geekery member). **
As hopefully all of you know by now, there is a new gaming con coming to Madison this fall – Gamehole Con. Gamehole Con will take place November 1-3 at the Madison Sheraton. Unlike all of the other gaming conventions in the region, this con is a focused tabletop gaming convention.
Gamehole Con is being run by a long standing group of Madison area gamers – The Gamehole. I am one of the original members of The Gamehole. We have decided to take this on because we are tired of the fact that we do not have a truly great gaming con in the Madison area. Sure, there are some other fun cons around, but they are not focused on tabletop gaming.
It maybe makes sense to tell you what Gamehole Con is not. There will be no con dance. There will be no costume contest. Not that there is anything wrong with any of that, but that is not what this con will be all about. This con is for the tabletop gamer.
We hope that the Madison Company of Gamers will support our con. You guys run some great games and we hope that many of you will submit games to run at our con. Event submission is open right now.
Please consider submitting your favorite board game to run at Gamehole Con. We have some tremendous GM/Judge rewards.
Our goal is simply to create and build a truly great gaming con. We hope that we will have your support in this effort.

Two VERY IMPORTANT notes:
1. Registration (buying your ticket) closes on Oct 15th. I am so sorry for the short notice. I didn't realize that registration closed prior to the beginning of the con.
2. I'm posting the meetup, but I will NOT be organizing any group activities at the con - in other words, this is not really a group Geekery meetup - you should sign up for the games that look most interesting to YOU.
