I'm curious ... did the usual Tim Kask clothing collector win the Gygax Sandal or is there another fetish collector?

I don't recall who was high bidder on the sandal, sorry! Stratochamp, bracton, and bbarsh were all in attendance. They might remember. I think a few other acaeum folks were there too, but I don't know everybody's name / user ID.

I don't recall who won the sandal; and no, it wasn't me.   :roll:

I did pick up the #1 Gary Con VI challenge coin, however.   8)
