Tower of Marv Cancelled

This is where we'll talk about any upcoming Gamehole Con Announcements and discuss things relating to the convention directly.

Tower of Marv Cancelled

Postby Sargonnax » Fri Nov 04, 2016 9:02 pm

I was part of a group to play the D&D Tower of Marv event with a special guest DM. We sat around the table for a while waiting for the DM to show up. When he never did someone went to find a person from the convention who informed him that the event was cancelled. I'm not particularly thrilled that I picked up my tickets today for an event that was not happening and nobody could be bothered to tell anyone registered for the event that it wasn't happening. I would have found something else to do if I knew this. I just wanted to warn anyone else that might be signed up for the event. Get yourself a refund and find something else to do.

Thank you for posting. I had a ticket for the Saturday 2pm game. No idea it was cancelled. No communications from GHC about it being cancelled.

Too late to help for this year, but for future reference -

They had a whiteboard with cancellations right where you go into the main 1st floor interior (the open area with the concessions, washrooms, Dealer Hall, etc around).

For one cancelled event GHC emailed the individuals to notify them. Unfortunately it was not the David Ewalt event.

I don't recall seeing a board listing cancellations. I will keep an eye out for one in the future.

I did hear about several cancelled events by word of mouth though.

Third year in a row the ecommerce system overcharged me and ended up with vouchers that were worthless. Good event sign up but the ecommerce is out of sync.

We are working on both of those problems. The challenge for us is 11th hour cancellations. For next year, we are going to add a feature that pushes notifications to those affected by late cancellations.

On the e-commerce front, the challenge there is that we are struggling with finding a way to deal with credit. Carrying it over is very challenging from an accounting standpoint. Anyway, we are working on it.
