    Default Columbus Ohio Retro Gaming Society (CORGS) Con - Saturday, May 16th 2015

    http://corgs-con.webs.com/

    CORGScon is back again, with a new and larger location this year. This year's show will take place at the Marriott Courtyard Columbus West in Hilliard, Ohio. The show will run from 10am-6pm and admissions is $7. There is an early bird hour at 9am for hardcore collectors to get first dibs on the hardest-to-find items and admission will be $10.

    If you are interested in being a vendor, tables are very cheap compared to other conventions. The first table is $50 and subsequent tables are $45 each. Contact Gary Carnuche at 70gool(at)msn(dot)com if you are interested in buying a vendor table. On top of free admissions, vendors will also get a free lunch this year.

    Now You're Playing with Podcast will be back again at CORGScon along with guests Rick from the Intellivisionaires Pocast and Willie from Arcade USA. We will be recording a live podcast near the end of the convention, as well as hosting an episode of Video Game Jeopardy.

    I should look into doing a smaller scale retro meet, these keep popping up and sound like allot of fun and less work to run!

    Less work, of course being a relative thing...

    The organizers have had the same types of hotel drama that you had when putting together CGE. I obviously prefer being a vendor .

    Actually the Riviera was great to us, the unions not so much. They shamelessly wanted payment for jobs they weren't needed for.
