Re: Hyphen-Con 2014::Pimp Your Game! [Now With Voting!]

Hey, I just wanted to let you all know that I might not be able to make the Hyph this year. I've had a family emergency come up and I might be out of state when HyphenCon happens. Since I'm supposed to be running a game you might want to pick an alternate game for my slot just in case.

Sorry,
Morgan.

While gaming on a train does have some appeal, I think I would probably be driving down if I went myself. But that said even if I don't make it there are a few other LA area people who make the trip down to the Hyph perhaps a carpool could be arranged.
