Well, this is a long over due post. I haven't posted in a solid 2 months. I'll talk about that another time. As for right now, it's time for an announcement.
It's announcement time folks! It's official. The OSR Track at U-con in Ypsilanti Michigan is set to go this year! I will, again, be filling the roll of OSR Track Coordinator. 2015 was a tremendous year for the track, and this year is shaping up to be even better! In the coming weeks (post Gen Con) I will be posting info for all of the "VIPs" that we have coming this year. This looks like it could be the biggest year for the track yet, and I'm looking forward to it. That said, we now have event submission open. You can submit your events (OSR or otherwise) right over at the event submission page. Make sure to list which track your game will run on (if it is an OSR game tag it with OSR, if it is a Board Game tag it with Board Game etc.) when submitting you events.
Where and when is U-Con this year?
What qualifies as an OSR event this year?
All TSR Era D&D qualifies,
AD&D 2nd Edition

As always, this list is hardly exhaustive regarding all of the great Old School RPGs in the world. If you have one you want to run and it isn't here, just let me know. Let's make this thing huge. I want to give your favorite Old School game a place to live and breathe.
This year is the 40th Anniversary of Judges Guild! With that said, I would like to request that we run some classic JG products in the OSR Track. I myself will be running a "Hangin' In the City State" event along with one other Judges Guild module. In addition to that, I already have confirmation that Bill Webb will be in attendance and running a 20 player foray into Tegel Manor! Come help us celebrate Judge's Guild's 40th anniversary at the U-Con OSR Track.
