With the Jedi Gathering thread, I thought I might share of another gathering of interest. Epic Nerd Camp brings together nerds and geeks of all flavors to do what they do best. I found it a great place to meet like-minded people who not only share fandoms, but also beliefs in treating others fairly, equally, and with respect regardless of their individuality.
Check it out and see if it is something which might interest you:
I’m going! My wife is one of the camp organizers. I’ll likely be suckered in to helping with some of the on-site logistics and acting as an NPC in the Space Quest LARP, but I’m planning to attend as a camper, so I can do plenty of the other classes.
