A Dothan gaming store is raising money through the internet for a fan convention planned to take place in November.
The name of this convention is Fanaticon Alpha, named after Fanatix. Fanatix is a local gaming store located in Dothan.
On the Kickstarter for the convention, Phillip Chalker describes it as "Southeast Alabama's First Gaming and Multi-Genre Convention." It's planned for November 16th at the Clarion Inn and Suites Grand Ballroom.
