News Con day is almost here. Therefore we've written up some important information for our valuable volunteers. Please read these suggestions and prepare for the convention! Thanks.

- Con setup begins at 11 A.M. Please try to be there at about that time to help us get everything arranged.

- The first thing that should be set up is the Side Events' Zone. This goes in the area which is normally the breakfast nook at the hotel.

- The Side Events' Zone should be equipt with televisions, consoles, controllers, and video games connected to electrical surge protectors. Try to have one console with games set up at every other table.

- The equipment will be stored in the Main Events' Zone. This is situated in the hotel's meeting room (the first room down the hall where competitions and other events happen). All the games and hardware will be stored in plastic storage tubs - some will be black and yellow, others will be white and clear, and others will be black and red.

- If for any reason the convention's management (Sean Robinson and such) isn't there by 11 A.M., we will be there soon thereafter. Meanwhile, please feel free to begin setting up. We'd appreciate it. That way things will be ready as soon as possible for everyone when the con opens later that day.

- If you are going to be bringing anything for the convention with you (games, controllers, TV's, etc.), then please remember to bring them on convention day and set them up in the Side Events' Zone. "Nothing" is worse than getting to the con only to realize you forgot something important at home!

- Vendors should set up in the Vendors' Zone. This is located in the lobby area near the entrance of the hotel by the automatic sliding doors. Vendors (artists and dealers) get to use one table and one chair each. Additional chairs might be available depending on the number of chairs and people at the time.

- If you have any questions, then please write to us at < http://gam.rocks/contact/ >. Thank you!

I think a little competition is in order. You could win free admission into the Summer 2016 GAM Convention!

  • Draw an illustration of your favorite video game character(s), preferably Mega Man character(s), at a social event such as a convention, reunion, party, festival, fair, conference, or exposition.
  • Submit your illustration as a comment in reply to this Facebook post. Click the little camera icon by the text entry box to select your illustration to upload it there.
  • Limited to (2) entries per person so that you can submit up to two illustrations.
  • One (1) winner will be chosen to receive a free ticket to the Mega GAM Con (Summer 2016 GAM Convention).
  • The due date is June 9th, 2016 (Mega Man / Rockman Day) at 11:59 P.M. Mountain Time.
  • The winner will be announced within a few days after the due date.
  • We will contact the winner around that time.
  • The winner will be chosen based upon the overall appearance of the piece and its conformance with the theme and spirit of the convention and the competition.
  • The odds of winning depend on the number of entries submitted.
  • No purchase required.
  • The convention will be granted full, non-exclusive rights to all entries submitted to the event. Entries might be used for promotional purposes by the convention. (This means the submitters retain the right to use their own artworks however they please, but we also get to use them however we please so that, for example, we can promote the con.)

There are only a few weeks left until the due date of June 9th so let the creativity flow. Get your art happening!

Are you up for a Smashing good time? I hope so as we are having Super Smash Bros. for Wii U competitions at G.A.M. on March 19th! Free sign-ups for attendees will be at the convention in Naples, Utah.

There will be two competitions. The first is going to be a one versus one tournament using the "For Glory" mode which means no stage shifts and no item/pickups to keep things strategic and fair.

The other competition will be a "Figure Player" contest using Amiibo. In this one, players will scan their Amiibo figurines into the game and step back so that their Amiibo can virtually duke it out against one another in a fight to the finish.

Prizes will be furnished for both the tournament and the FP contest. I've heard from a reliable source that a "Franklin badge" from Earthbound will be amongst the prizes included in the prize pack for the first place winner in the tournament. You'd better get practicing!

Say, while you are at it, you should share this page with your friends and post it to your social media accounts. That way we can really ramp up the heat in the competitions by having even more contenders fighting in them!
