Who are we?
HammerCon is labour of love from the organizers of Hammer Games, an umbrella group for gaming activity in the Hamilton area, and other important volunteers.
As HammerCon's general manager, Angela wears many hats managing convention operations and promotions. She has been a gamer for more than 20 years. In her gaming life, Angela is a zombie connoisseur, horror aficionado, a lover of board games, and a huge fan of collaborative storytelling and innovative rules systems in roleplaying games. She would love to see more women participate in hobby gaming, including game design! Angela enjoys the nitty gritty of planning an efficiently run and fun convention, and welcoming new and returning gamers each year.
Mikael suffers from a life-long obsession with gaming in all its forms. This affliction has led him to many follies, such as starting Hammer Games, and participating in and running games as frequently as is humanly possible. He has even been known to write his own odd little games as time permits. He is involved with HammerCon due to a lizard-brain desire to spread his condition as far and wide as he is able, and nostalgia for the well organized Swedish gaming cons of his youth. Mikael is HammerCon's event manager and webmaster.
