Ok as promised....

Celebrity Guest Announcement:

We are proud to bring you another Georgia native. Hailing from Atlanta, we present Jayson Warner Smith! You know him as Gavin, one of the Saviors on the Walking Dead.

Jayson began acting at the age of 9. He has worked in film, theatre and television. He teaches acting at the Robert Mello Studio in Atlanta. Besides the Walking Dead, some of his most notable roles are from Rectify, The Vampire Diaries, 42, Anchorman 2, Sleepy Hollow (tv), I Saw the Light and Footloose (2015).

We are proud to add Jayson to our growing line-up. It just makes me wonder what kind of trouble 2 Saviors will get in at Chapel Con.

Make him feel welcome!

I can assure you that these shows will be fun, family friendly events. Even better than that, MAW plans on running a lot of its events as fundraisers. Their first event is Sept. 10th @ the Friendly Moose in Big Lake, MN.

Please make them feel welcome and support them when you can.

You can find them @ Midwestallstarwrestling.com

Attention: Help us bring Chapel Con back to Albert Lea for a second year! We are in the planning stages, but need to liquidate some of the merchandise from this year's con...

Here's what we have for sale...

$10 swag bag: includes t shirt, program, bracelet, lanyard and souvenir cup

$10 art prints: choose from Iron Man drawn by Shawn McCarthy or Ming Chen and Michael Zapcic as zombies by Jay Jay Bird Hansen. Come to think of it, why choose? You can get both for $15!

If you missed out on Chapel Con, we do have a limited amount of the zombie print autographed by Ming and Mike! $30

Help us recoop some of the money lost by picking up some cool stuff. We truly appreciate everything that you guys have done for us.

The merchandise is available at the Chapel Comics and Collectibles Shoppe and I will be at Wind Down Wednesday working to earn us some money towards next year's con. Be sure to stop by and visit.

Video Game Announcements:

Chapel Con is proud to announce the inclusion of Pixel Game Labs to our con. Branden and Jamie will be on hand to chat with you about video games and all things nostalgic. What's better than that? They will be bringing an assortment of stand up arcade machines and multicades. Some of them will even be for sale! They custom design arcade machines for your home or business as well and will be taking orders at the con.

They will also be hosting the Super Mario Speedrun. What's that? It's a contest to see who can beat Super Mario Bros. the fastest. The rules are as follows...

Stop watch will start when you start the game.

You have three lives to beat the game (if you earn extra lives, you can use them, but no continues)

Warping is permitted

The first person to beat the game will have their name and time posted on our board. If someone else does it faster, we change the name and time on the board to the current leader. At 4:00 pm cst on Sunday, the contest will end.

It will cost $5 for a chance and 100% of the entry fees will be paid out to the winner. This could end up being a pretty nice chunk of change!

How much are tickets to Chapel Con?
Any fans of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency going to be at the convention? I'll be doing an Amanda Brotzman season 2 cosplay for one of the days and I'd love to grab some photos with others from the series, especially any of the Rowdy 3. I'll also be doing Daenerys Targaryen from season 3 of Game of Thrones one of the days. Will I see any other GoT cosplayers?
