BGF Announcements


The event grid is nearly ready to go and will be published next week along with instructions for preregistering individual events. If you still have an event you would like to run, please submit it immediately!

The volunteer schedule is being sent for confirmation to everyone who is listed on it today for confirmation. There are three slots left: Friday 12-3 (newly added), Sat 3-6 and Sat 9 to midnight. .

We are looking for volunteers to run “Learn Your Free Game” sessions. We will be giving away plenty of games at BGF and would like attendees to know what they've won! If you would like to assist in this effort, please let us know. (A list of giveaway games should be available next week.)

We are considering holding a table in the dealer’s hall for CABS member’s arts and crafts. This table would be/is restricted to made items (if you want to sell your used games that’s what the consignment store is for). So email us if you would be interested!
