I started playing D&D back in the 1970s, after watching Bakshi’s version of LOTR. Gary Gygax deserves a memorial and I’ve just donated to the fund. I hope everyone else does to!

Gail Gygax, widow to the late and great Gary Gygax, and crew have established a non-profit organization to help raise funds in order to get a monument for Gary Gygax erected in Lake Geneva WI. Anyone who knows anything about gaming, particularly tabletop RPGs, knows this is a no-brainer. Gary, along with Dave Arenson, developed the original D&D that we all cherish and love.

Gary went on to develop and publish countless timeless works that did nothing short but inspire anyone that’s picked a set of those odd shaped dice.

You can show your support by giving some back to the legend by using the donate button on the fund’s website. While you’re there leave a short testimonial on how Gary touched your life.

Also feel free to Like the fund’s Facebook page. A quick ‘like’ shows a ton of support and keeps you up to date on what’s going on.

Lastly if you really want to contribute a service or just get involved with making this really happen send an E-mail to: Gygaxmemorialfund@gmail.com

Jamie Inglis Appeal

On 1st April 2010 (April Fools Day), the British Army 2 Div Environmental Health Team are attempting to cycle across England, coast to coast, following the Hadrians Wall cycleway in just 10 hours!  This is in support of Jamie Inglis (the 4 year old son of a fellow army Environmental Health Technician) who has a rare and aggressive cancer called neuroblastoma and needs treatment only available in the USA, at a cost of £250,000, so every penny counts.

Please donate now at: http://www.justgiving.com/2-Div-EH-Coast-to-Coast
