Running GenCon is a HUGE undertaking, and I think we all owe a big THANK YOU to Ray!

I know it's already been said many times, but it deserves it's own thread.

Thanks Ray, for all the work you put in to making SWM happen at GenCon.

+1. Everything went great with no major holdups that I was aware of. Anyone who played in any SWM events at GenCon this year owe it to Ray, as he was responsible for making sure everything got done and everything got done right.

+1 to Ray

Also would like to add a +1 to James W who stepped up and ran the computer alot more than he had signed up for due to Jonny being unable to attend.

Also a +1 to Jedicartographer and Armored Gear for providing another wonderful mystery map to play on (even if it may not make restricted list)

And a +1 to Brad/Ben for running a very smooth Championship event.

Thank you all for the kind words. I won't sugar coat it, there were things that went wrong, but the fact that many people helped out to fix them just shows that leadership only goes so far, there must be other people ready and willing to pitch in to help, and to those people, I tip my hat.

The best part is that I got handshakes, pats on the back, and one nameless individual groping my right buttcheek, all to say thank you. I am so glad that everyone enjoyed themselves. I take it this means I should start thinking about Gencon 2012?

Technically if you compare time stamps between your post and my Gencon report, I beat you to that by a few hours ;)
