August 16, 2023: SJ Games To Sponsor Hoop And Stick Con 2024

Ravenwood Castle Great HallAbout a month before I got hired at Steve Jackson Games, my husband and I took a vacation to Ravenwood Castle in New Plymouth, Ohio. We had seen ads for the inn on Facebook and were intrigued by its location and offerings – not only is Ravenwood located a short drive from Hocking Hills, the Moonville Tunnel trail, and Ohio University, but it is also a unique inn that caters to gamers of all ages. People who stay at Ravenwood can check out boardgames from the extensive library, participate in scavenger hunts, or even play chess using their giant outdoor chess board. There's also no better place for TTRPG one-shots than the Great Hall. Ask me how I know . . . 
Ravenwood Castle hosts a wide range of events throughout the year, but the one that they're most proud of is Hoop and Stick Con. Since 2016, Hoop and Stick Con has raised money for Extra Life, a fundraiser that supports Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Every employee I spoke with at Ravenwood talked about their love of the event and how proud they were to raise money for such an important cause. I wanted to be involved in the convention, but I had no idea that I'd end up doing so with Steve Jackson Games!
That's right – in 2024, Steve Jackson Games is helping to sponsor Hoop and Stick Con. Our sponsorship money will go directly to Extra Life to help kids access life-saving treatments and procedures. In addition to sponsoring the event, we'll also be contributing a collection of signed games for the event's online auction. The auction is a great way to get involved if you can't make it to Hoop and Stick Con in person; we'll be sure to post more information when the time comes.
One of the best things about the tabletop gaming community is how it enthusiastically supports good causes. Everyone here at Steve Jackson Games is excited to support Hoop and Stick Con, and we hope you will be too!
