Have you ever wondered where this stuff came from? Here are a few pictures of where it all got started.

This was Kaye's house in Lake Geneva. The company consisted of a desk and a cleared out pantry for the storeroom.

This was Gary's house, the second home of TSR. For those with an early woody this is the place where they were handmade.

First true headquarters of TSR and hobby shop, can you imagine how many rare treats must have once been here.  8O


The North Texas gathering got me thinking maybe and this is just a stretch of the imagination. The Acaeum could host a Classic Con in Lake Geneva. Just a weekender Fri -- Sun. We could start small, schedule a few era games, have some OOP venders and auction, A speaker or two, Rent a bus and take a tour, Heck…Gary still lives there you could probably get him to host it. I know it would be a lot of work, I helped put comic conventions together before, but it is doable. Our hobby's 30, most of us are that age plus……..It's time for a classic car show. It could attract a lot of the old-school.

Opinions,
Mike
