After Action Report: My Return to ConCarolinas

It was not easy.  I have posted about the decision to return but the actual act was even harder.  I had to deal with a lot of people I still have sour feelings towards.  I had to watch as people

ConCarolinas & JustUs Productions Bumpsticker

Something I through together that was ruled too “politically incorrect” to post anywhere else… A few comments from others when we took over… Gaming has never felt like an event since [the bugs] has been running things. Not to jab them,

My return to ConCarolinas, a time to heal?

JustUs Productions was approached by ConCarolinas (aka That Con) to run their gaming once again.  Of course,  because I am a big part of the service that JustUs Productions provides, I have had to do some serious soul searching.  This
