Sponsors and Vendors
We owe everything to those who support us.
The vendors will be located in the Great Hall. This room will be open from approximately 10:00am-12:00am (midnight) and will be locked at other times.
A special shout-out goes to Mini-Komix for donating prizes for this year's tournaments. Click here for more information about their products.
We also want to thank GameStop for providing us with promotional items to sell and/or give away at the convention.
