My Tech Guys are delighted to announce our sponsorship of the Comox Valley’s newest convention CoVaCon, from April 13th-15th, 2018 at the Florence Filberg Center. This is a 3-day celebration of all things geeky brought to you by the Comox Valley Geek Society, a group of local geeks dedicated sharing their passion for gaming, cosplay, and technically creative activities in the Comox Valley. This inclusive convention is full of family fun normally reserved for bigger cities!
This year’s convention kicks off Friday Night with the free launch party for Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle by the Comox Valley-based Video Game Developer, Blue Wizard Digital. After the success of their puzzle game, Slay-a-way camp, they won the rights to the huge Jason Vorhees franchise and want you to come celebrate at the Florence Filberg Centre in Courtenay on Friday the 13th!
