On behalf of Who’s Yer Gamers and everyone who worked tirelessly over the last year to deliver the best Who’s Yer Con ever, thank you. Thank you for being one of the 2,411 people who came out to support the Who’s Yer Gamers mission, helping us make free and low cost gaming available to everyone. Thank you to our dedicated Con Staff, led by our phenomenal Con Director, Jill Harris. You all spent hundreds of hours and many sleepless nights pulling together the best free gaming convention in the Midwest.
Thank you for being a supporter by joining our membership programs. Thank you for submitting events and running games at the show. This year, we had nearly 700 approved events. We handed out roughly 450 GM cards to gather additional data for the first time, and nearly half of those were returned. Thank you.
Thank you for donating to our silent auction and Game Library. Our Game Library, boasting over 300 games prior to Who’s Yer Con 2016, now has over 400 games available for check out at our events around the community. Of these 400 games, almost 200 unique games were checked out of library by you. We had 551 transactions by 308 gamers at the show.
We also want to thank you for donating to the Indianapolis Blood Center. Forty-eight units of blood were given over the course of the weekend, and nearly $500 was raised by our friends with Endless Dungeon. All thanks to you.
Our volunteers, as always, were outstanding. Our Swag Pack Volunteer Event was so full of volunteers that we didn’t have room for everyone! We had over 110 volunteers at Who’s Yer Con 2016, and 400 volunteer hours logged. We are so thankful for all of our wonderful volunteers.
Over the course of the weekend, we had so many amazing events, led by you–tournaments, painting, cosplay contests, RPG specials, retro arcade games, the Indypendent Show, BB8 cupcakes, and a wedding. None of this would have been possible without you. So again, thank you. Thank you for all of your support, and thank you for helping us achieve our goals throughout the year to further our mission. We hope that you enjoyed the Con and that we will see you soon at one of our upcoming events. Be sure to keep in touch to see all the places we will be!
