Techcon cancelled; but gamers didn’t. We’ve taken off work, made plans, and more.
OKgamers.com found a replacement venue; the Tulsa Event Center has graciously discounted their space.
30+ Gamers stepped up and donated to the cause of paying for half the space cost.
That’s when TokyoUSA, Inc (parent non-profit to OKgamers, Tokyo in Tulsa, Green Country Comics & Gaming) stepped in and met us half way – putting up the rest of the money now, so we can make this event official RIGHT NOWl!!
