Room Block Reminder

Just wanted to let everyone know that the room block will be closing March 9th. After that your reservation won’t be able to take advantage of the special GameStorm rate. So hop over to the Red Lion page and make your reservation!

Hotel Clarification

ts-map-pin-2400pxThere’s been some confusion about our new hotel. It’s the Red Lion at Jantzen Beach, which is on Hayden Island. This is *not* the Red Lion at the Quay, where GameStorm 10 was held. It no longer exists.

If you’d like to get involved in planning our first convention at the new location, you can join us at our next meeting, which will be Sunday, June 19, at 12:15. The location is Guardian Games, at 345 SE Taylor Street in Portland.

GameStorm 19

GameStorm 18 was a great success; now it’s time to share some exciting news about GameStorm 19!

As great as the Hilton was for 8 years, we have outgrown it. I am pleased to announce that GameStorm 19 will be moving back to Portland. It will take place at the Red Lion Hotel on Jantzen Beach, March 30 – April 2.

There’s a lot of work that goes into making GameStorm happen, and we can always use more enthusiastic volunteers. Contact the chair for details.

Memberships are $35 through April 30th. Get yours now at the lowest price!
