SnowCon staffer (and all round nice guy!) Derek Porter won the Big Gig Pitch-Off in Derek Porter with The House of Meeples, Board Game Cafe! He had the benefit of a strong showing from the SnowCon and Bangor Area Gamer’s Guild to encourage him.
Porter pitched his vision for a board game cafe in Bangor against two other participants. After some great feedback from our Big Wig judges, Jay Shields, Elizabeth Sutherland,and Jason Bolton, Randy Wadleigh, CEO of Governor’s Restaurants, spoke about the lessons he’s learned from running his family-owned business. The audience voted for their favorite, and Derek Porter was crowned the winner!
