TableTop Day: How you can help!

I've had a few people ask me how they can get involved with our TableTop Day event. There certainly are things you can do, but before I get to them, a little disclosure. This event is a not for profit event. The Columbia Tower has graciously knocked $2000 off of their regular club rental price, without which, there's no way this could have happened. For some reason, having 200 highly intelligent movers and shakers from the Seattle area visit their venue was appealing to them, so they worked with me. I wanted to charge $10 for tickets. At their normal rates, I would have had to charge $25. We settled on $15 because, at the end of the day, they have to pay their staff that's going to come in on a Saturday and cook/serve/cater to us. If I personally come out in the black on this event (which is not guaranteed, by the way), I will be donating the proceeds to charity.

Now, how to help.
  1. The number one way you can help this event to succeed is to go to this Facebook event right now, click the Invite Friends button and invite ALL of your gamer friends. And your friends that you think might make good gamers (the "faux nerds", if you will). And then invite randoms, because who knows? Maybe they're closet gamers.
  2. You can also "Like" the Dawgsled Events Facebook Page and follow us on Twitter.
  3. We will have some games at the event, but as it stands right now, we won't have enough for 200 people (although that could change if negotiations for a partnership with a to-be-named game store work out), so you're encouraged to bring your favorite game. Show others why you love it so much!
  4. Lastly, if you haven't bought your ticket yet, you can buy yours here. We've sold 60 tickets already, but we need to get that number up to 200. There is plenty of room on the top floor of the club to accommodate this number, but if we blow the doors off of that, there's a chance we could expand this event even further
  5. Finally, if you're a game store owner or a game developer and would like to discuss a partnership with our event, please get in touch by sending an email to dawgsledevents [at] gmail [dot] com.
That's all for now! Thanks to everyone for the great response this event has received so far! Please help us keep the momentum going, and PLAY MORE GAMES!
