501 Garrison Excelsior has received an invite to have a table free of charge at UBCon http://www.ubsarpa.com/ the weekend of April 13th-April 15th. We have been invited to share this table and troop with them at the Con. The table will be right out in the Student Union by the registration table. We'll also have a secure room to change and store our gear.
UB con is a gaming con which operates at all hours, at the university of Buffalo. Please post here if you are interested in this event and when you would be available.
On the Excelsior boards there is an official planning/coordination thread for the event as well.

Last Sunday when I spoke to the woman in charge of programming, she said there was no Star Wars gaming (RPG or minis) planned yet. They will welcome anyone wanting to run an event. We could get a table near the fan club table if anyone was interested in playing some minis, learning the game or trading. The only miniature gaming planned so far is 1 Heroclix game.

The event is put on by the Strategists and Roleplayers Association, a Student Association club here at UB. You can get more info about the group running it at www.ubsarpa.com

I'm a current UB student, and here's what I posted about the event in other boards:

The event is primarily a gaming event, and not really much of a "convention" from my typical convention experience. It really is a bunch of UB students getting together and gaming, whether it be card gaming, board RPGs or occasionally video gaming. Other than that, not much happens.

My freshman year I was a part of this convention, performing in my old improv troupe. We had a spot to perform right in the front of the Union, but honestly, we didn't get a lot of attention from anyone actually at the con, most were just gaming.

Just thought I'd give a bit of perspective. Personally, I will not be participating.

It went well.
Different members of the con staff and volunteers came up to us numerous times telling us how excited they were to have us there.

Although most con attendees were obviously gaming we did have folks stop by to check out our table, pose for pictures and check out our Star Wars miniatures game we had going on.

Would've been more fun it we had been able to get more costumers there, but maybe next year.

Any new Echo Base members come out of this event? How much money was raised and to which charity did it go?

From the pictures it looks as if they put you in an empty room, was there any traffic at all?

As Bryan said, the reason we never did this event was the lack of interest.

No new members yet, but a couple people signed up on our mailing list.
We raised $7 and it went in with the rest of our donations for the American Heart Association's Heart Walk last weekend.

Our table was out in the Student Union near the registration desk.

The mailing list that Garrison Excelsior maintains.
I'll also be forwarding the names to North Ridge's CR.
