Great Falls, Great Gaming

 

Welcome to the home of Great Falls’ only annual gaming convention since 2012, the Great Falls Gaming Rendezvous!

Great Falls Gaming Rendezvous 2020 Convention Canceled
To all GFGR members and to the public, The Great Falls Gaming Rendezvous, Inc. Board of Directors has been reviewing the current pandemic situation regularly with an eye toward our October convention. Considering the information out there at present, the best estimations of experts on the matter, along with current (and future) reopening strictures for states across the country, the board has decided at this time to cancel the Great Falls Gaming Rendezvous 2020 convention. The health of all our members must come before all other considerations and we just can’t see a situation where we can hope to manage that effectively. Everyone knows we take a very serious view toward the safety of our attendees, as if they were (because we consider them to be) our extended gaming family. This is simply a broadening of that viewpoint. We will be using this time to strengthen our organization in a number of ways so we can host the Great Falls Gaming Rendezvous 2021 convention with even greater energy and excitement. It will be our tenth year, and it needs to be celebrated. In the meanwhile, our ConCom continues to look at ways to keep you, our community and members, engaged; keep an eye out for further announcements about fun activities and events to keep us all together.
GFGR, Inc. is a charitable organization which is joined by registering for our annual convention. This makes all people who buy a full weekend badge to the con a member. Members are entitled to speak on organizational matters and have a say in how things go forward; this is especially true of our annual membership meeting held every Sunday morning of the con. The board prides itself on having this sort of interaction. Membership from the previous year normally ends at the start of the new convention. For this year, due to the extraordinary circumstances of the pandemic and the cancellation of the 2020 con, the board has voted to extend the GFGR, Inc. 2019 memberships through to the year 2021, and to expire the day before the GFGR 2021 convention starts. We do intend to host our annual members’ meeting for 2020. At this time, we are unsure how, but all members will be alerted to time, date, and method in plenty of time to plan on attending. Thank you all for your support, understanding, and patience in this matter. We look forward to seeing you all at Great Falls Gaming Rendezvous 2021 and until then, stay safe and stay well.

Great Falls Gaming Rendezvous, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) charitable non-profit organization founded in Great Falls, MT in 2012. It is dedicated to raising awareness of all manner of gaming (and related activities), and in so doing, raising money for educational donations. GFGR has also donated to cancer research, suicide prevention, and other focuses close to gamers’ hearts and minds.

 

Notice from the Safety Committee

Recent events of a profoundly serious nature have been brought to the attention of Great Falls Gaming Rendezvous, Inc. through our Safety Committee. While these incidents are not related to any events held by GFGR, Inc., our Board of Directors felt an immediate response was needed to safeguard the community we have built over the years. This response included various actions intended to continue the safety and fun of all our members and attendees. We continue to stress these two factors of safety and fun for all at our events, and remain proud of our record to try and ensure a positive atmosphere for everyone.
