The Gygax Memorial Fund is hosting an exhibit at Gen Con this August 4th-7th to raise awareness of its mission. At the Old School Renaissance Group booth (#1541), Gary's widow, Gail Gygax, will be talking about conversations she had with her husband before his death about how he wanted to be remembered, the resulting vision for the statue, and the goals of the Memorial Fund.
At the booth, the Fund will be taking contributions and offering donor rewards including T-shirts with the Gygax Memorial logo - Argent, a Bar Azure, Three Lozenges Gules - and a book called Cheers, Gary, which selects the best of his correspondence with fans at the EN World Q&A threads and whose cover is illustrated by Erol Otus. Editor Paul Hughes will also be at the booth with Gail signing copies of Cheers, Gary and discussing plans for another volume based on the Dragonsfoot Q&A.
This is a very worthwhile cause, so please spread word of it to anyone you know whose lives were positively affected by Gary. He was a giant in whose shadow we all stand.
