Events & Play Wednesday - Winter War Mourns Donald McKinney

As the staff gears up for Winter War 43, to be held January 29-31, 2016, at the Hawthorn Suites in Champaign, IL, they mourn the loss of 22-year chair Donald McKinney.  He passed away on Friday, December 11th, 2015 at 1:50 pm at Carle Foundation Hospital with his wife, son, family and friends by his side.  His obituary can be read in full here on Winter War's Yahoo Group.  Winter War is one of the longest running game conventions in the country.

The flyer for Winter War can be downloaded from here.  To get an idea of the scope and type of events that will take place, you can check out last year's program here.  Current event listings are here.

Finally, on The Daily Illini YouTube channel from a couple years back, there is a video highlighting the convention and featuring some interview footage with Donald McKinney.  He will be missed.
