Last Poker Tournament
To answer a question that we have been asked about the timing of our poker events, it all
comes down to when we can obtain the services of our volunteer dealers. The weekends at the
end of the summer tend to be very busy, so we were actually quite lucky to have six dealers
agree to participate next Saturday. So you know, our next big poker tournament will be held
on September 23rd, and it will be a huge benefit event for the
Matthew Shepard Foundation.
Matthews parents will be coming to town for a fundraiser organized by Anthony Aragon from the
Denver Mayor's office on October 13th, and we will be presenting all the funds raised at the
poker tournament to the Shepards at that event. Mark your calendars now to save the date!
In other news, I want you to know that over the past few weeks that we have been purchasing
tens of thousands of
Jason St. Mega-Store.
I am not exactly sure what opened the floodgates, but we have been inundated with people selling
us great material over the past month. As a direct result, our sales at
were up by a whopping 60%! in July, as compared with the same month last year. If you are looking
for any scarce comics, you really should stop by
and have a look around. I own the place, and I keep seeing cool new items on shelves that I had
no idea that we even owned...
My final item for today is a quick mention that we are going to be hosting an incredible live
wrestling tournament on September 30th. The details are on the flyer below:
