Hey folks, as some of you know (and some of you don't), I chair a convention in Ontario called ConBravo!. This year we're very gaming and costume oriented, and we've managed to pull in quite a number of guests and arrange events of some remark. I usually don't schill much of anything, but I figure this is a relevant kind of event for any Canadians we have aboard, so yeah.
If you go over the website (http://conbravo.com
), you can get a fuller idea of what we offer. It's two days worth of events, guests, workshops, and panels, $20 if you pre-reg, $25 at the door. We're running over July 30-31st at the Holiday Inn, 3063 South Service Rd., Burlington, ON.
Guest Highlights Include:The Nostalgia Critic

- From Talking Classics and Screwattack, he'll be... jumping off and falling down things. If he survives, he'll probably nerdrage at everyone in the gaming room. Also his Canadian premiere.Birdman Dodd

- The most renowned improv geek comedy troupe of Canada, they'll be doing several shows at our event, including an 18+ night for extra laughs.
We also have an outdoor arena, tournaments for a whole slew of games, a costumed masquerade contest, our Saturday night dance, and a whole lot of other stuff. So yeah, if you're excited, in the area (or hey, willing to travel), and wanna come out and be a part of the fun, visit the website. I'll obviously be there and hopefully get to meet some of you guys. :)
