Newsletter #52 for July 10th, 2023

Howdy folks!

It’s Tommy time! Community Liaison ThatTommyBoii reporting for newsletter duty!

I’m writing this newsletter a day in advance as I am traveling to meet a friend of mine, so let me hurry up and give you the news!

Collector’s Edition Joe Hills TCG card!

Pre-order is still open for Joe’s collector edition TCG card! You can purchase a signed or unsigned copy over here!

Double Feature in the discord!

Reminder to folks that Joe will be joined live in-studio by Quinn Hills on Sunday, July 16th, for a double film discussion! The films are The Dish and The Shawshank Redemption

It seems like some folks already familiar with the films are interested in the discussions that will take place after, so be sure to join us!

As previously mentioned, nobody will be streaming the films, folks are responsible for obtaining their own copies and playing them at the same time. You can find a schedule under Activity-Sign-Ups > #July-16-double-feature or in last week’s newsletter.

Nashville meetup

Speaking of Joe and Quinn, come hangout with them at a meetup in Nashville! More information on this can be found in the discord under Meet-Ups > #July-17-nashville.

The voting window has now closed! Thank you to everyone who participated, the results have been collected and after it is ensured everything works the parameters will be submitted to Joe.

Upcoming conventions

Music City Multi Con tickets sales have still not opened. In the meantime, keep your calendar clear, we have tentative dates for Fall and Spring TGD! Again, the dates are NOT final, as the hotel contract has not yet been signed!

So long for now…

I hope you enjoyed this week’s newsletter. I’ll be back live on stream next week as per usual, and if you didn’t know, I write the newsletters with Joe every monday morning and call in to his coffee and correspondence streams, how exciting! You should tune in so I can say hi to you, I’ll see some of you then!

This has been TommyBoii reporting for newsletter duty.

See you around!
