WML! 11-8-2014

[07/16/14]   UPDATE: It was never announced, but we did have a date booked in August, at the Grand Traverse County Civic Center. We never announced it, because we were not sure if we could afford their new rates (over QUADRUPLE what we were paying). We tried to negotiate a lower rate, but no success. So, as of today, the aforementioned booking has been cancelled.

As mentioned in a previous post, we are still interested in having an event this year (probably later than usual), but it will NOT be at the Civic Center. If you have any suggestions for new venues, please post them.

[06/27/14]   GTFF - Grand Traverse FragFest is seeking new venues. Do you have any suggestions?

GTFF - Grand Traverse FragFest

Some people have been asking if there is going to be an event this year. The short answer is, there is nothing planned as of yet.

We are interested in volunteers to help in the future. We need some motivated individuals to help plan and coordinate activities. We're also interested in someone willing to do some "new venue shopping," particularly for the winter time. ;)

We aren't gone forever. WE WILL BE BACK.

GTFF - Grand Traverse FragFest

It's time we shared some bad news. There are no events planned for this year. We're not going away, and do plan on having events in the future. However, for the time being, we're taking a hiatus.

With that said, if you, or someone you know is having a LAN party, please be sure to post the event here.

Additionally, if anyone wants to host a large event, we at GTFF will be happy to give you pointers and possibly share our resources. LAN parties a great way to raise money for clubs and groups. School cafeterias and gymnasiums make good locations.

In the meantime, keep on fragging!
