CanGames 2016 Begins Today

Well, today is the start of CanGames, the local gaming convention here in Ottawa. I'll be getting back to the house hopefully around 11:00 am or so from work, and then will put together some of the stuff that I'll need for the con, among other things.

Once more, for those who are going to the convention or who might be interested, here's the listing of the games that I'm running with times and descriptions included...

I've also got a bunch of stuff that I'll be selling at the convention this year (you can see the list of games for sale at this blog entry and two earlier ones), and hopefully I can sell this stuff for some reasonable sums, as I could use a bit of money for later in the year.

Health-wise, I have a couple of problems that I've gone into in other posts, so won't dwell on here. I've been struggling to walk of late, and shoes don't fit too well and are rather tight on my ankle and top arch. I have no idea how well I'll be walking at the convention this year, but we'll see what happens. And don't be surprised if I take off my shoes at times during the course of the convention. The weekend should be interesting, to say the least.

Since my home computer is off-line for a bit longer, I won't be spending any time on the computer this weekend, so folks will have to wait for when I've got the computer set up again for the 'net, and have spare time for the post-convention report for stuff about CanGames 2016. I may tweet from the convention on my mobile phone over the weekend, and will hopefully take a few photos as well of stuff for posting here and elsewhere.

In any event, I hope I'll see some of you at the convention. Since you've seen the photo of me here on my blog, you'll know who to look for. The hair's a bit more gray, and there's a bit less of it, that's all. :)

Heading Out to CanGames

Got home about 20 minutes ago, and I'm just waiting for spross before I head out to this year's installment of Ottawa's gaming convention, CanGames.

I'm looking forward to the convention, and hope to see some folks from the interwebs there this year. If you see me, please pop by and say "Hi." Or better yet, join in one of the four games that I'll be running this year!

In the meantime, hope everyone has a good Victoria Day weekend here in Canada, and that my American friends have a good weekend, too. :)

Game on!
