The Weekly Update - Sunday, August 20th, 2017 - Fifty Years Of Gen Con, And Other News

Brett Slocum at Con of the North

Well, here we are at fifty years of Gen Con; it's also that time of the year when Con of the North (Minnesota) and U-Con (Michigan) start to look at their events for the upcoming conventions. You can fnd out more about these two excellent conventions on the Tekumel Yahoo group, which is run by Brett Slocum.

The emphasis here at the Workbench, right now, is that my father-in-law is going in tomorrow to have a cancerous kidney removed. So, if you'll forgive me, I'll be back later on this week with more in the way of gaming news; we're a little distracted, right now...



  1. Hope the operation went well and that he's gonna make a full recovery. My mom had half of her left kidney removed in 2014 because of cancer. She is fine now.

    My thoughts are with you and your family.

    1. Thank you for your kind words! I passed them along to the rest of the family, and they really appreciated them.

      He's doing well - the pathology report came back negative, which has us all breathing again...
