Raffle Items for NTRPG Con 2013!

Every year the NTRPG con sponsors a raffle to help fund the convention.  We lose money every year to bring old school gaming to all the great gamers out there, so no surprise.  This year, however, Doug informs me we are about 250 tickets off the pace!  We have already had a 30% increase in attendence from last year and expect to have a massive walk-up, so the problem is not in number of attendees. I have heard from quite a few people they will buy tickets at the door, and that is appreciated.  Yet our sales to people not attending the con are nearly microscopic.  You do not have to be present to win any of these great prizes!  Last year our Free Trip to NTRPG con was won by a non-attendee.  Please think about dropping $10-$20 on a few $5 tickets if you get the chance! You will be supporting old school gaming and have the chance to win a few great prizes.

NOTE: At this late point, you can only purchase tickets at the event!
