    I know that this may be new to some people and may even be too late for a lot of people to be able to make it/afford it/etc. but I wanted to know who plans on going to the Grassroots Gaming Expo.

    There's a lot of info in this article: http://www.examiner.com/arcade-game-...set-for-august

    Overall, since the Big Bang got postponed and there was people that still wanted to make the trip to Ottumwa, Myself and Josh Bolinger decided to put on a gaming event on our own. The Grassroots Gaming Expo will take place August 5-7th at The Bridge View Center in Ottumwa, Iowa. We already have over 14 arcade games plus a few pinball games that are to be available to play at the event, plus all the games that Star Worlds Arcade plans on bringing. We will have several consoles available to play as well as tournaments for people to enter. There are plans of a BYOC (bring your own computer/console) area and approximately 20 Bands to be playing. We are working on getting films to have playing at the event and tons of vendors. There is even talks of Tabletop and card games to be going on, including Magic: The Gathering tournaments as well as other games. We're planning on holding an auction to raise money for the International Video Game Hall Of Fame And Museum.

    We'll be posting a ton of information on our website in the next week or so: www.GrassrootsGamingExpo.com and you can get your tickets now at http://grassrootsgamingexpo.ticketleap. ... amingexpo/

    We have a special "Gamer Package" that comes with a Goodie bag that includes an exclusive event t-shirt as well as a limited edition, numbered event poster as well as several other items. There is a limited number of this package so if you want it, you better buy it now before they sell out.

    The Gamer Package is $40 (gets you a customized all access badge and goodie bag. Cutoff date is July 8th, 2011 at 5pm) and the Basic Package is $20 (only gets you a customized all access badge. Cut off date- July 22nd, 2011 at 5pm) Tickets at the door will be $25 and will get you a non-customizable all access badge.

    All the proceeds from tickets will be going to the International Video Game Hall Of Fame and Museum.

    If there is any questions or comments, please feel free to write us at contact@GrassrootsGamingExpo.com

    I'll keep checking back here as well. :D
