Another Garage Con -- The History

Another Garage Con has its genesis in an event run for several years in Texas, where a Battletech player with an expansive garage ran a Battletech event, initially for a few friends, then growing into a large annual event. Unfortunately, due to reasons lost to the mists of history, this event faded away and died.
In early 2007, Ed "Captain of the Watch" Smith, Battletech Camo Specs artist extraordinaire, decided to revive this event. Having recently purchased a house in Moore, Oklahoma, Ed recruited his friends, Colin "Charlie Tango" Toenjes and Ross "Savage Coyote" Hines to help make this event come to pass. After a frenzied preparation of events, gathering of prizes, and publicity campaign, Another Garage Con 2007 was held on October 26.

The event exceeded all expectations, drawing nearly 25 players from 3 states, even with the limited amount of publicity. Unfortunately, this success pointed up the need for a larger facility if Another Garage Con were to continue to grow. So the decision was made to move Another Garage Con 2008 to a new home.
