If you are the Beetcafe who has dropped by the Saturday Night Fights once or twice, glad you found the joint.

I have wanted to come to Rock-Con for years, living as I do in Milwaukee.

Glad to see you're still fighting the good fight!

I am one in the same.  I have lurked a few more times during your Saturday night fights while working.

It would be great if you could come down for the con. Saturday is the big day with games running from 9am to 11pm. Lots of miniatures, some board games, and role playing.  I will be running a figure eight Circus Maximus game Saturday night.
