Making it happen

We know not everyone can attend our Open Games Day in Oklahoma City but may still want to know what they can do to help make it happen. We have set up a GoFundMe page to allow for that help and to help offset some of the costs involved. The funds raised there will go towards the cost of the hall, the swag bags, flyers, programs and prize support for our event. And we have rewards for contribution levels. We will ship the reward to you. If you would like to help just go here.
