I have an old ALPS glidepoint with White tactile ALPS switches that I never got a chance to clean up. (It would be a cool project board for somone, or a good place to harvest caps and switches)
Bought it a few years ago at a thrift store but I never had time to do anything but clean the caps in warm water.

And if I have my caps cast by the con, I can throw in one or two.

Tickets will probably have the pricing of $1/1 ticket, 6 tickets for $5, 15 tickets for $10, 30 tickets for $20.

Any remaining proceeds will be donated to the Extra Life charity


Why to charity instead of to GeekHack?  Just curious, expecially since the site seems to need the funds.

Ah, I didn't know the site was hurting for funds.  But yeah, I just figured a childrens' hospital charity is something everyone can feel good contributing to :)

Not complaining :)  Just wondered.  And yes... that's the reason we have the Deals tab, and the Tapatalk donations.
