KC Geeks and Gamers
Today we are pleased to announce the beginning of a six-month trial sponsorship of the KC Geeks and Gamers Meetup.com group. Founded by Doreen Mundy, the KCGG is a large Meetup group comprised of just our kind of folk... geeks and gamers in the Kansas City area. The group's nearly 900 members host a number of events each month that Guild members are sure to be interested in, and provide another great pool of potential gamers for the Guild. We encourage all Guild members to join the KCGG meetup group and see what its all about.
The KCGG group recently converted to a fee-based membership, and so members would have to pay to remain in the Meetup group. However, for the next six months the Guild will sponsor their Meetup group, allowing KCGG members to remain in the group at no cost. Our two groups will share information on events and cross-post between our sites. Hopefully some KCGG folks will see the value of joining the RPGKC, and become full members of the Guild, eligible for discounts at area conventions and voting rights at Guild business meetings. Likewise, hopefully some Guild folks will see the value in joining the KCGG meetup group, with their meetup scheduling system, email list and discussion forum. We'll evaluate the effectivness of this outreach at the end of the six-month trial period.
Let's work together to support and encourage gaming in Kansas City and the surrounding area!
