Second Helpings Charity – Thank you Note

We received a thank-you from Second Helpings (one of the two 2018 charities), thanking us for the money we raised during the Gen Con Charity Auction.

We’d like to give a big “Thank You” to everyone who participated in the Charity auction (whether you won an item or not).   You all have helped feed deserving families in central Indiana.

Welcome to our new site.

We’ve updated from using Joomla to WordPress.  This gives us the ability to create posts a lot more easily and bring you news and updates more quickly.  There are also a lot of available add-ins, so new features can be installed.  Look for all sorts of improvements in the future!

We again had no on-site registrations – and zero complaints!

The big change this year was a new feature to our software to help with helping TAB buyers to pick up their items. We added a third credit card machine and processed seller payouts and TAB pickups right at the computer station. This saved buyers and sellers from traipsing all the way across the room to pay or pickup their money.

After the convention we received a thank-you from “Second Helpings”.  See the note here.
