Right now we have all of our Eclectic Endeavors staff working on various details, to do list, projects, etc. getting everything ready for G.A.M.E. EXPO Year 9! We wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU to all our volunteers and that includes everyone from our Officers to our Henchmen. Some things we wanted to make sure everyone out there was aware of when you think about G.A.M.E. EXPO.
- We are all volunteers. None of us get any pay or compensation for the YEAR of work it takes to put on G.A.M.E. EXPO and the 3 other events throughout the year.
- We are non-profit, and give back to the community. The money you spend with G.A.M.E. EXPO goes to meet our expenses and to be ready for next year’s event. Last year we started our scholarship program and awarded $500 to a recipient going to Drury University. We hope this year to award MORE scholarships and LARGER scholarships!
- We are a 501(3)(c) and a program of the Springfield Regional Arts Council. In our effort to promote the geeky arts and get it the respect that the “mainstream” arts we have partnered with the SRAC and bring geeky people into the fold.
- We love what we do. We love Springfield Missouri and the surrounding area. We’ve been here for 9 years and will be here for many more, provided everyone wants us around.
- We do this all for you. The memories people leave with, the new friends they’ve made, the new games and ideas they’ve discovered, the old games they’ve rediscovered — these are the intangible rewards of our event.
When you think of local conventions, we hope that G.A.M.E. EXPO has a special place in your heart and on your calendar.
We really really need volunteers for Year 9 of the G.A.M.E. EXPO! If you volunteer for 10 hours you can get a FREE pass to the whole weekend. That’s just 3 hours on Friday, 3 hours on Saturday and 4 hours on Sunday (part of that is tear down at 4PM).
For your time with us, you not only get FREE into the event all weekend, you also get:
- Free Henchmen T-Shirt
- Access to “The Lair” where you can store your stuff, hang out and relax, get free food & drink
- A “Thank You” party at 1984 in November
- ANNNND .. you have the chance to win a $100 AMAZON GIFT CARD!!! You earn raffle tickets during your shift towards this EXCLUSIVE RAFFLE for HENCHMEN ONLY!
Join us! It’s a lot of fun too!
If you are unable to come to one of our last 3 meetings before G.A.M.E. EXPO, please contact Taneesa Hall or Chris Stuart to explain your situation. If you know someone on the Eclectic Endeavors staff that can vouch for you — we will work with that. We just have to make sure we don’t schedule you, and then not have you show up for shifts. This is why we ask to meet you in person. We’ve had this happen every year — no call / no shows — and leaves us scrambling to cover those shifts with our Officers.

As we hurtle towards preparing for G.A.M.E. EXPO Year 9, now only a month away … we are getting schedules set and information posted. We’ve run into some snags. If you were filling out a game registration or a henchmen schedule or whatnot — and skipped STEP 1 — you’ve been naughty!
We HAVE TO get your membership registration filled out so we know who you are and such. So, please make sure you do STEP ONE first! If you need to set-up a Membership Registration for some form you’ve already submitted — just go directly here: http://springfieldgame.com/member-registration-page/

Game Masters — we are working on getting gaming request scheduled — not to worry you’ll see your games on the schedule very soon.
Henchmen / Volunteers — if you cannot make it to one of our last 3 meetings — you can still be approved to volunteer. Just contact Taneesa Hall or Chris Stuart to explain your situation. If you have someone we know that can vouch for you — that will make the process easier.
