The tenth annual WGGCon starts Friday, August 31! We’re expecting a fantastic turnout all weekend long, so please RSVP on Facebook or Meetup (or both). We start Friday at 2:00pm and run around the clock until Monday morning.

Elliot and Alec will be at the con the entire time (minus a couple trips home for showers), so please text or call if you require assistance or have questions:
Elliot: 914-525-6375
Alec: 914-382-7464

Location

We’re once again at the Croton Point Park Rec Hall with extra gaming space available in an enclosed tent.

Please see this map for the Rec Hall location within the park. When entering the park, please mention that you’re with the Rec Hall party and you’ll receive a discounted car entrance fee of $5.

Schedule

We start Friday at 2:00pm and run around the clock until Monday morning. We have to clean up and be out of the Rec Hall by 11:00am on Monday so there won’t be any activity on Monday, but we can game as late as we want on Sunday.

Our world-famous BBQ is on Saturday at 5:00pm. Vegetarian options will be available. We will also provide soda/water and snacks during the entire con, and this year we’ll have a hot dog cart on Friday evening. Feel free to bring anything you don’t mind sharing, but you’ll need to provide your own cooler for anything that needs to be kept cold.

We’ll be projecting movies on a big screen after dark each evening. Popcorn and other snacks will be provided.

You’re also welcome to bring your families even if they’re not gamers. Plenty of people will be bringing their children to enjoy the park, but kids under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.

Geek & Gaming Trivia

Westchester Geeks will be hosting trivia on Sunday at 2:00pm. Questions will cover both gaming and general geekery. Come test your wits against your fellow geeks and win prizes!

Cost

WGGCon is paid for entirely with donations. Our costs have increased due to renting the tent, higher park fees and buying more and more food and snacks, but we have faith that our supporters will come through as they have every year.

meeple_stickerOur suggested donation is $5-15 per person per day plus $10 for those who join the Saturday BBQ. We don’t have a firm amount because we’d like people to base their donation on how long they spend with us and how much food/snacks/drinks they consume. If you’re only stopping in one day for a couple hours, feel free to pay $5. If you’re with us around the clock and eat voraciously, then please adjust your donation accordingly.

We also welcome attendees to bring any snacks or food items they’d like to share.

As mentioned above, there’s a $5 per car fee to enter Croton Point Park (please mention you’re with the Rec Hall party for that reduced rate).

Raffle

As a thank you for those who donate, we have some fantastic games for our raffle. We’re not selling tickets, but you get a free ticket for every $5 you donate for food and the venue as per above. The games are brand new and shrink wrapped. We’ll draw names Sunday at 6:30pm for each of the five lots; you don’t need to be present to win.

WGGCon 10 Commemorative Dice

And this year, all those who donate $20 or more will receive a special commemorative WGGCon d10!

Hello fellow gamers and WGGCon attendees!

As winter begins to wind down, we turn our thoughts to the upcoming convention season and the summer’s culmination with WGGCon IX. Yes, that’s right, this is our ninth WGGCon coming up. Can you believe it? Well, we can because after 8 years of coming up with t-shirt designs, Elliot and Tanya are tapped out of ideas. So, this year we are going to try a t-shirt design contest!

In the past, our shirts have visited the campgrounds, Dungeons & Dragons, the Forgotten Realms, Gen Con, Star Wars, Star Trek and more. You can see a gallery of all past t-shirts here.

This year, one of you can come up with the design (and win a prize for your efforts…more on that below). As you can see, we like to keep it to a single color to keep costs down, but if you have an idea that uses more colors, let us know. Feel free to use the front of the shirt and you can even have your design encompass something on the back, so long as there is room for:

9th Annual
WGGCON
Croton Point Park, NY
Labor Day Weekend
2017
(and room for our sponsors’ logos)

We would also like to incorporate our traditional logo/mascot, meeple with a hot dog on a roasting stick, somewhere in the design.

Please send your submissions in Adobe Illustrator (.ai) or Photoshop (.psd) file formats to Elliot <eskravitz@optonline.net> by June 1, 2017. This gives us enough time to evaluate the designs, pick a winner and get back to you with any ideas that need tweaking. Elliot, Tanya and Alec will pick the winning design to be printed.

Besides getting to see your idea emblazoned across the chests of this year’s WGGCon attendees, the winner will receive two free shirts and the following four games:

Good luck and we’re looking forward to your designs. Please contact us with any questions.

Happy gaming!

Elliot, Tanya, and Alec

If you’re only stopping in one day for a couple hours, feel free to pay $5. If you’re with us around the clock and eat voraciously, then please adjust your donation accordingly. We’re just a bunch of friends getting together for gaming, so we don’t want to worry about money. Hopefully we break even again like we did last year. (Thanks to all those who contributed!)

Besides any snacks or food items you wish to bring, the other way you can help out is by bringing folding chairs or tables. There’s plenty of picnic tables outside, but we need to augment the furniture in the cabin.

Raffle

GamesAs a thank you for those who donate, Elliot, Alec & John Velonis have contributed some great games for a raffle. We’re not selling tickets, but you get a free ticket for every $5 you donate for food and the venue as per above. The games are brand new and in shrink wrap. We’ll draw names Sunday night; you don’t have to be present to win.

Thanks and see you at WGGCon soon!
