I think that’s everything, except for one final note-
THANK YOU!

Taking the leap and moving to our new location was TERRIFYING, but thanks to the support of all of you, our amazing community of Gamers and Family, this has been an awesome experience and I am excited for all of the opportunities that are opening up because of the new store.

A huge shout out to a few people in particular (sorry for anyone I forget to call out! You are loved too!)
The Staff here has been amazing, Skyler, Zach, Will, Carter & Cameron have been incredible.
The Larson Family, Shelby, Kerry & the rest of the clan, have breathed new life into our Board Game Night, & Rainer, Tommy, Ben have shown up with a ton of awesome games to share.
Brett and the Skyridge Team starting up Kill Team, and The Rudder coming in to start up even more Warhammer!
BattleHaven & Mike Dunn for their support of AGC & our Paint Night events!
Ed for starting up Adventurers League, David for building up an awesome Thursday Night DnD League.
Tony, Kori, Kaylene & Kevin for all their work with Pathfinder Society.
Justin and Lehi High for making AGC an amazing event to be part of!
My Dad, Richard, for the all the work that he has put into creating our Leaderboard in Python.

And, of course, my wife, Brielle, who has been the defining change at Game Grid – from Store Aesthetic & Presentation to Facebook & Instagram, with way too many hours spent together here, and way too many hours spent apart, Brielle is the reason that Game Grid has been able to become what it is today and I wouldn’t have been able to make it happen without all of her time, support and love.

We’ll see you all this Weekend!
A Happy Prerelease to all, and to all a good night 🙂
