In Memoriam: Dave Szulborski

In Memoriam: David S. “Dave” Szulborski
1958 - 2009

dave_sIt is with great sadness that we share the news that Dave Szulborski, a long time ARG community member and game designer, has passed away at the age of 51. He is survived by his wife Marianne and his son Tyler. Dave has attended many of the ARGFest-o-Con conferences over the years, and was the keynote speaker at last year’s event in Boston. Dave was in Las Vegas in 2003 for the first meet-up, complete with T-shirts and other giveaways for those in attendance. In total, he attended five of the eight events and was a featured panel speaker in New York, San Francisco and Boston. As we mourn for our friend, we are reminded of his involvement and support of this festival over the years, and we feel that the best way to recognize Dave for his contributions is to dedicate ARGFest-o-Con 2009 to his memory.

The first update of 2009!

Welcome to April, folks. This means we are within four months of ARGFest-o-Con 2009, and things are heating up behind the scenes for us on the Directing Committee. In the past two weeks, we’ve been working hard on securing locations and accommodations for the event, and we’re ready to announce that the Courtyard by Marriott Portland City Center‎ will be the host for this year’s conference. We’ve updated the Location and Booking sections of the web site, and will be focusing on sponsorships and speakers for the next little while.

Many of you out there have been hard at work as well, making plans and arranging for time away from work and such. Some of you are even planning a massive trip that includes ARGFest-o-Con and ComicCon! For those spending some extra time in Portland before and/or after the conference, be sure to check out some of the links we’ve added to the Location section.

We’ve got news about this year’s Speech Blitz coming soon, and have information about this year’s Order of the Trout sponsorship package. So, remember to check back often for the latest updates on the conference, and to find out how you can get involved!
